The S-FR uses a front engine and rear-wheel-drive layout, which should give it suitable handling for enthusiasts. Toyota points out that the engine is set back from the front axle, making weight more evenly distributed.

Fifteen-inch wheels seem small for a modern car, but they fit the proportions of the S-FR well. High, black sidewalls also give it a historic vibe.

As a concept, Toyota doesn't specify an engine for the S-FR, so power is left to the imagination.

Surprisingly, there are rear seats in the S-FR, although legroom and access looks minimal. The shifter on the console hints at a six-speed manual transmission, but again, the drivetrain is not specified.

The dashboard concept uses a smartphone holder in the center, and a digital gauge display for the driver. A flat patch on the left steering wheel spoke suggests a thumb-operated touchpad.
