The real Meguiar’s Scion FR-S was designed in partnership with Scion and debuted at the 2012 SEMA Show and was digitally recreated inside the two Forza franchises by Turn 10 Studios.
“The Forza Motorsport games encourage players to customize cars to reflect their individuality, and both the real and digital versions of the Meguiar’s FR-S stand out from the pack,” said Scion Vice President Doug Murtha. “Bringing the FR-S into the Forza franchise is a great match of Scion customization and a vehicle that is a lot of fun to drive inside the game and out.”
To encourage players to share photos of their digital FR-S cars on the track, Meguiar’s is sponsoring a Forza Horizon photo contest that ends on May 17, 2013. Winners will have chances to win prizes from Meguiar’s and Xbox 360 by taking snapshots of the FR-S within the game. A “Rivals Mode” race events was created in both games to give players a chance to test out their new cars in competition.
