Starting from the very moment he wakes up, the viewer will help Steve choose between an FR-S RS 1.0 or the Steve Aoki FR-S project car to commence the ride. They will then be given two options, each taking the viewer on a different journey. Whether it’s skateboarding with Riley Hawk, a behind the scenes look at a Steve Aoki music video shoot or his recording studio, drifting in the FR-S RS 1.0 with Ryan Tuerck, an interview with recording artist Borgore, a surprise visit to the Scratch Academy amongst others – sadly no cake throwing here – there’s a whole host of exclusive content to be discovered!

Appealing to car enthusiasts and dance music fanatics alike, ‘Scion x Aoki Driven’ is a cutting-edge and original way to engage fans and spread the word about his upcoming releases, as well as giving them the opportunity to discover some of the most exciting cars on the road today.
