After Toyota revealed the GT 86 model at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Japanese based automaker Subaru has decided to officially present its BRZ at the same automotive event.
The Subaru BRZ has been developed in conjunction with Toyota, just like the GT 86, the production version of the FT-86, and after placing it into the spotlights for several times, the automaker has finally decided to release some official details about its newest sports car, so, at for once at least, we can actually talk about the vehicle’s engine and total weight. But that’s just about all we can talk about because Subaru is keeping the rest in the shadows until the car will hit the dealerships.
According to the Japanese based automaker, the Subaru BRZ is powered by the company’s horizontally opposed 2.0 liter boxer engine, with Toyota D-4s direct injection and port technology, developing the same amount of power as its brother, the Toyota GT 86, which is a total output of 197 horsepower and a peak torque of 205 Nm or 151 lb-ft. The Subaru BRZ has a total weight of 1.220 kg (2.690 lbs).
Sadly this is all we know for now about the newest sports car in Subaru’s lineup and the manufacturer didn’t release any data about the model’s performance, fuel consumption or CO2 emissions, keeping it all in the shadows until the vehicle will officially hit the dealerships.
