It sat in development for two long years. Toyota teased us with concepts, tiny details and all manner of wild goose rumours until the GT 86 was finally unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show earlier this year.

Now it's the turn of Scion, Toyota's 'yoof' brand in the US to show its take on the GT 86. Which is... largely the same at the Toyota car. However, to prove the Scion FR-S has potential to wow 'da kidz' Scion popped 25-year-old race and drift champ Ken Gushi behind the wheel of a camera-clad car and let him off his leash at the Sodegaura Forest Raceway.

The result? A very happy, slippery man contently hooning around the track.

If you had any doubts that the GT 86/FR-S/BRZ was going to be a car that spreads joy, you'll be proved wrong here.
