Subaru BRZ STI
Following months of speculation with only small glimpses and artist impressions, Derek Slack Motors can now reveal Subaru’s RWD (rear wheel drive) BRZ STI.
Subaru’s collaboration with Toyota shares many components with the FT-86, including Toyota’s fuel saving D-4S ‘direct injection system’. However, the chassis and the 2.0 Boxer engine is all Subaru - delivering 250bhp. The BRZ embodies Suabru’s passion for the sports car with a model already booked to appear on the race track in the Japanese Super GT series (GT300 category)
Although the FT-86 and the BRZ models boast very similar profiles, the Subaru BRZ will be more powerfull and sportier with a more recognisable aggressive Subaru bodykit than its Toyota sibling.
We’ll keep you posted on developments and when it’s scheduled to appear at Derek Slack Motors showroom
