Only 6,000 Subaru BRZ units going to the U.S. for the 2013 model year image

The Japanese based automaker Subaru has recently announced that only 6, 000 units of the all-new BRZ sports car will arrive in the United States for the 2013 model year.

According to the car manufacturer, only 6,000 units of the Subaru BRZ will go over-seas for the 2013 model year, so if you live in the United States and really want this, you can order the Scion FR-S, which is basically a rebadged Toyota GT 86, the BRZ’s brother, because Toyota won’t bring the GT 86 sports car over-seas and the model will be sold exclusively in Europe and Japan. If you really want to get your hands on the Subaru BRZ, you’d better hurry up because the automaker is accepting pre-orders for the model, even if there is no official word on pricing yet. Deposits are fully refundable.

As a reminder, the 2013 Subaru BRZ has been officially presented at the 42nd edition of the Tokyo Motor Show, being designed as a joint project between Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation. The 2013 Subaru BRZ is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine which is identically tuned as the one found on the Toyota GT 86, developing a total output of 197 horsepower at 7.000 rpm and a peak torque of 151 lb-ft available at 6.600 rpm. Power is being sent through the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission with a short stroke shift level. An optional six-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifts is also available.
