The first details and images with the new Subaru BRZ tS STI emerged today on the web after the Japanese manufacturer released some teasers. The new car is already available for order in Japan but Subaru will only make 500 units of this beauty as it will be built in a limited edition. So, what’s new?
According to Subaru, we find STI-designed 18-inch aluminum wheels (Silver) wrapped in 225/40ZR18 (92Y) Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, 17-inch Brembo ventilated brake discs with STI logo on the front and rear.
Furthermore, we find STI-tuned strut and STI coil springs for front suspension, STI-tuned damper and STI coil springs for the rear suspension, STI flexible tower bar on the front, large diameter driveshaft, tuned VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control), a new front bumper, new front fenders with STI logo, STI badges on the front and rear, and a tS badge on the rear.
Subaru will also offer the GT package, which includes STI 18-inch aluminum wheels (Black), a dry carbon rear spoiler (2 angle adjustable), Recaro front buckets, Alcantara, leather, STI logo and the SRS side airbag.
The bad news is that Subaru will not offer a power boost for the 2.0-liter boxer engine, which means that the vehicle gets the same 200 hp seen on the standard version.
