Subaru BRZ STi officially confirmed

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 5, 2013

If the Subaru BRZ STi was just a rumor, today it became official! The Japanese manufacturer has just released two teasers with the upcoming sporty coupe, but there is not much to see, just the STi badges on the front bumper and on the front fenders.

As you may know already, Subaru first offered a glimpse of the upcoming car with the BRZ Concept STi Concept, shown back in 2011 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

A year later, the Japanese carmaker was caught at Nurburgring testing the STi version of the BRZ. In terms of design, there are little changes such as a large rear wing and larger wheels that will accommodate larger brake discs.

Moreover, the car is expected to receive a new body kit with redesigned front and rear bumpers, as well as an updated interior. The big surprise will be under the hood.

Some sources say that Subaru will offer a new version of the naturally aspirated 2.0-liter flat four engine with around 230 hp. Still, there is a possibility to see a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine with around 280 hp and significantly improved torque.
