Bulletproof Automotive is known for providing massive power gains to already-fast cars and its new FR-S Concept One is no exception.

The Concept One is its take on transforming an FR-S into a super car, which means numerous changes had to be made in order to warrant that title. For one, the engine was rebuilt to fit a Powerhouse Amuse turbo kit and Borg Warner turbocharger. As well, the entire body was rebuilt by hand to accommodate a wider stance.

Bulletproof didn’t forget about the interior, reupholstering it completely with Alcantara and adding Recaro race seats and carbon fiber trim for good measure.

The concept is sitting on 19-inch Volk Racing wheels with Toyo R888 tires, and although the flat-four remains, the advanced turbo system bumps power to 500 hp.

Considering the suspension was upgraded to track-spec as well, we can say it definitely deserves the super car title.
