Motivation.
"The spirit and concept of the Bulletproof Automotive FR-S Concept One is simple: supercar. The FR-S/BRZ/86 platform has inspired a worldwide swell of inspiring tuner cars, race cars, and show cars. The outpouring of innovation for the platform has been spectacular. That's why we knew we could do none of the above, and we set our sights higher. We wanted a car that could rival or exceed the Lexus LFA in all areas. We wanted to take an entry-level car and elevate it to the realm of a world-beating super car. Performance, looks, sound, feeling, and dynamics all had to be taken to the stratosphere. That means that every detail was important, and we didn't want to neglect even the smallest pieces—even the pieces that no one will see except us."
