Subaru BRZ revealed – going to L.A. Auto Show image

The Japanese based automaker Subaru has finally revealed its new production version of the BRZ concept previewed earlier this year and has officially announced that the sports car will debut at the upcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, in November, with the final production version going to the December Tokyo Motor Show.

Compared to the BRZ STI Concept, the 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX STI is over a foot longer and seven inches taller, to 189.3 inches overall, with a wheelbase of 103.3 inches, 70.7 inches wide and 57.9 inches high. The BRZ measures 166.7 inches long, 70.9 inches wide and 50.4 inches tall, with a wheelbase of 101.2 inches, while sitting on 215/45R18 front tires and 225/45/R18 rear tires.

The Subaru BRZ concept for Los Angeles will be powered by a normally aspirated version of Subaru’s FA-series 2.0 liter, four-cylinder boxer engine, which is expected to develop around 150 kW, but for the STI version, which is expected to come later, the same unit will generate 180 kW.

The Subaru BRZ will go on sale next spring in the United States, along with the Toyota FT-86, which will enter the over-seas auto market as the Scion FR-S.
