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

Derek Slack Motors, main dealers for Subaru in Middlesbrough and North Yorkshire, held their first Subaru STIMULI track day on the 4th November at Teesside Autodrome. The electrifying event organised by Subaru allowed a hand-full of Subaru customers the opportunity to put the Subaru STI through its paces at South Tees Motor Sports Park. The track day consisted of a wide range of activities including, breathtaking manoeuvreability and road handling skills. Subaru’s own team of professional rally drivers offered advice, whilst demonstrating the awe-inspiring ability of the new Cosworth Impreza STI as we accelerated from 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds (quicker than most of the world’s supercars), the Cosworth Impreza also pumps out a prodigious 400bhp as we went through a series of tight, hair-pin bends with much screeching, (was that the tyres or me?) all very gripping stuff, (literally).
Customers then strapped themselves behind the wheel of the WRX STI to feel the awesome 300bhp, managing 0-62 in just 5.2 seconds. Even though the rally winning, AWD (All wheel drive) STi boasts some serious power, it still proved what an exceptionally easy car it is to drive and why it’s still miles ahead of any competition.
Before breaking for lunch we enjoyed some less physically challenging driving in the shape of a fun Scalextric competition. I think everyone agreed it was a great event and one that really showed why the Subaru WRX STI is a world beater.
