Subaru has pulled the wraps off the BRZ Concept STI today in Los Angeles, the automaker’s all-new rear-wheel drive compact sports car born from a joint collaboration between them and Toyota.
The car makes use of the the automaker’s Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine and promises to be a ‘Pure Handling Delight’, as it features a low centre of gravity (120 mm lower than other Subaru models), is fitted with numerous components made from carbon fiber (such as the roof), meaning it is light but also highly rigid, and is also equipped with an STI tuned suspension, 18 inch lightweight alloys and Brembo brakes.
This 2.0-liter direct fuel injection naturally-aspirated 4-cylinder engine inside the Subaru BRZ STI is also fitted as low as possible, and has been designed with a square bore and stroke of 86×86 mm. Power level remain unknown, as Subaru has only mentioned that it will have a high output combined with high environmental standards.
The Subaru BRZ STI measures 4,230 mm in length, 1,800 mm in width and 1,280 mm in height, and has a 2,570 mm long wheelbase.
As far as appearance the BRZ STI distinguishes itself from the Toyota FT-86 though through its differently styled hexagonal grille, the "hawk eye headlights" and the "fin-shaped fog lamps", plus the large rear diffuser and the twin dual tailpipes.
The Subaru BRZ STI is also fitted with a low front spoiler and a massive rear wing, with the car’s body being finished in "WR Blue Pearl II", a new generation of the iconic WR blue.
