When the Subaru BRZ was launched in spring 2012, only a limited amount was allocated for customers in the in the United Kingdom. But thanks to high demand from buyers in the country, Subaru UK has lobbied for an increase in the allocation. Wish granted!
More Subaru BRZ is coming to Britain starting this year after Subaru UK managed to secure a larger annual allocation of the vehicle from the brand’s Gunma site in Ota-city, Japan.
This came along with the confirmation that a number of Subaru UK-approved BRZ performance, handling and styling modifications -- courtesy of Pro-R -- will be unveiled for the UK market and will be available in the next few months via the carmaker’s dealer network.
The increased allocation of the Subaru BRZ means that buyers could receive their brand new model within two to six weeks after a customer placed an order, depending on final spec and color choice. Now Subaru UK could cater to growing demand for the vehicle in its home turf.
Paul Tunnicliffe, Managing Director of Subaru UK, remarked that the Subaru BRZ has been a “sales success” but they always struggled to match demand with supply. He quipped that the larger allocation could help them address the problem of matching UK demand with enough supply.
The newly-released Subaru BRZ is a rear-wheel drive sports vehicle that features the Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine. It was created as a joint project between Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation, to bring to the world the full display of a sports vehicle with commanding steering response and driving luxury that is accessible to all. The Subaru Boxer engine in the BRZ was situated lower than other Subaru models so that the BRZ has one of the lowest centers of gravity on the industry today.
This low center of gravity generates a staggering handling attribute and fused with a lightweight chassis, BRZ accomplishes Subaru’s goal for “Pure Handling Delight” – the driving escapade brought to a golden standard.
The product idea of the Subaru BRZ is “Pure Handling Delight.” The Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine has built-in features of low center of gravity, compactness, and lightweight. These characteristics are enhanced by putting the engine even lower and nearer to the center of the chassis. These features add to BRZ’s low center of gravity – one of the lowest available on the market. The Subaru BRZ is an exciting sportscar that gives the driver the full Subaru experience.
All-new Subaru BRZ has a low-mounted Boxer engine on a meticulously designed sub-frame that makes an “ultra-low center of gravity package.” With this alignment, BRZ perfected a low driving position that is quintessential of a sportscar. The total height of Subaru BRZ is 1,300 mm with a wide and low body of a trendy coupe at 1,775 mm. This allows for a two plus two seating and a trunk with adequate space. The BRZ is not just a sportscar, it is also a fitting partner for long rides with its optimal usefulness.
