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.
