The very first example of the Subaru BRZ has been recently delivered to a customer in the United Kingdom, as the Japanese based automaker has announced.
According to the car manufacturer, the very first British owner of the Subaru BRZ is named Ed Horner, from Wanstead, London, and his new sports car, painted in World Rally blue Mica, has been recently delivered to a local dealer, the Woodford Motor Company in Woodford Green, Essex, on the 26th of June.
“I’ve owned a number of Subaru models in the past, including an Impreza Turbo, and I’ve never had anything go wrong with any of them. The Woodford Motor Company was really helpful, as ever, so I really didn’t have to thing for long about buying one”, said the proud owner for the first Subaru BRZ in the UK.
As a quick reminder, the Subaru BRZ has a starting price of 24,995 pounds in the UK for the entry-level version and the model has been available for pre-order in the country since earlier this year. The Subaru BRZ is available in two trim levels, the SE and the SE Lux, and the base version is getting standard features like the push-button start, dual-zone air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, electrically folding mirrors, leather gearlever, leather handbrake, ESP, iPod connectivity, six-speaker steror system, torque-sensing limited slip differential and 17-inch alloy wheels.
Power to the Subaru BRZ is provided by the same engine found on the Toyota GT 86 and on the Scion FR-S, the Subaru developed 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit, which is producing a total output of 197 BHP, sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission in standard or through a six-speed automatic, available as an option.
