Subaru reveals the UK specifications for the right hand drive BRZ

Article by Christian A., on February 24, 2012

The Subaru BRZ with UK specifications is meant to offer amazing performance and exciting handling. To achieve this, Subaru added to its already generous standard equipment. Subaru’s dealerships have expressed a lot of interest for this new 2+2 coupe. In fact, many customers have ordered even before the company announced its pricing and features, including its standard equipment.

Subaru said that the top-of-the-line models are fitted with 17-inch alloy wheels, a torque-sensing LSD, front, side, curtain and knee airbags, MP3 connectivity, dual-zone climate control and LED daytime running lights.

The BRZ, which was designed with a focus on the driver, gets Subaru’s VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control). It could also come with either a six-speed short-shift manual or paddle-operated automatic transmission. Later in the year, Subaru will release a second, lower-spec model. There will be a third version – a “stripped out” one – that is meant for those who want to tune and customize the BRZ.

This is also suited for track-day fans. The BRZ is offered in six striking colors: Subaru’s trademark WR Blue Mica, Sterling Silver, Satin White, Crystal Black Silica, Dark Grey Metallic and San Remo Red.

The meticulously developed powertrain packaging enables Subaru’s famed horizontally-opposed 200PS 2.0-litre Boxer engine to be positioned lower than ever in the past.

In fact, the 2+2 coupe has the lowest centre of gravity of nearly any vehicle, with about half of the mass of the BRZ below knee height. It ensures a power-to-weight ratio of 164PS per ton and when combined with advanced lightweight chassis and the addition of innovative lightweight materials, the BRZ gets outstanding handling features.
