Earlier this week, we told you about and showed you renderings of the three FR-S project cars that Scion plans to bring to the 2012 SEMA Show, which opens its doors on October and runs through November 2.

Now we have the details as well as real life pictures and even videos of the FR-S Tuner Challenge cars.

The FR-S concepts were created as part of a competition in which Scion gave three custom car builders the opportunity to put their talents to work while imposing a $15,000 budget and a three-month time-frame to complete the transformation.

In Las Vegas, the finished cars will be critiqued by independent car show judging company, Global Judging, with the winner to take home a $10,000 grand prize.

The three car builders are John Toca from Chicago, Illinois, Daniel Song from Orange County, California, and Chris Basselgia from Lebanon, Pennsylvania.

John Toca's proposal is called the “Carbon Stealth FR-S” and his goal was to develop a car that was "both show and go". The beige-colored FR-S sports a FiveAD aero package with carbon fiber parts, smoked lights and 19-inch wheels in Pirelli P Zero tires size 235/35 at the front and 235/30 at the rear.

The interior of the car is fitted with a 6-point roll cage, Recaro sport seats, Alcantara headliner, carbon fiber dash inserts, custom gauges and a high-end audio system.

Under the hood, Toca chose to boost the boxer engine's output with a Vortech supercharger and several other upgrades, while the coupe's suspension and brakes were also heavily modified.

The second model is the “FR-S GT” by Daniel Song and it is clearly the meanest looking of the three, thanks in part to the carbon fiber vinyl wrap and the wide bodywork designed by JONSIBAL, which makes the car look ready to hit the track. It rides on 18-inch wheels wrapped in Toyo Proxes 4 Plus tires size 235/40 up front and 275/25 at the back.

The race theme continues inside with a full roll cage, Sparco bucket seats, race harnesses, quick release steering wheel, e-brake and shift knob, carbon fiber trims and door panels, and a push start ignition system.

Song also equipped the 2.0-liter flat four with a Vortech supercharger and an air-to-air intercooler, while other performance modifications include the Brembo brakes and air-suspension.

The last tune comes from Chris Basselgia who named the car “Minty FReSh” after its exterior paint job. Basselgia says he wanted to "enhance the beauty and performance" of the FR-S in a stylish and up to certain degree, luxurious way.

On the outside, the Minty FReSh gets new front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a duck bill spoiler, along with 19-inch wheels shod in 225/35 Falken tires. Inside, you will find custom leather seats, a classic Nardi sports steering wheel, a titanium gear knob, arm pads on the rear panels and a new audio system.

Improvements under the bonnet include an Eaton roots supercharger, a new intake manifold, an air intercooler and numerous other upgrades, while Basselgia also fitted the car with an Airlift suspension and larger brakes.

Maybe it's just me, but the 86 emblem on the fender, on the brown one looks like a swastika.

This one could have been a true winner if it didn't have those wack fender vent looking things, a real spoiler and not a weird looking trunk. Some real wheels, maybe a more pop color rather than a pastel. Should have blackened the headlight HOUSING not the WHOLE THING and matched some interiors of the housing to the paint of the car. Poked the wheels out some more. Red tails and that color DO NOT GO well, should have matched them with the headlights (black).

The pastel color should have been an accent, not a primary
