The convertible version of the newest sports car in Subaru’s lineup, the BRZ, has been rendered, and this is actually a first look of what the drop-top might actually look like.
Even if the collaboration between Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation has been officially presented to the public, in its final form, at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show, this might not be the last time we will hear about the Subaru BRZ. There’s no official word yet about a convertible version of the Subaru BRZ, but thanks to theophiluschin.com website, we now know how it might look, and if this catches the production line, than Toyota will also release a drop-top version of its GT 86.
As a reminder, the 2013 Subaru BRZ has been revealed at the 42nd edition of the Tokyo Motor Show and it has been designed as a joint project between Subaru and Toyota Motor Corporation. The new 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 having a peak torque of 151 lb-ft available at 6.000 rpm. Power is being sent to the rear wheels through a six-speed manual transmission, but a six-speed automatic, with paddle shifters on the steering wheel, is available as an option.
