[VIDEO] Cosworth teasing new performance packages for Toyota GT86 and Subaru BRZ
Cosworth has recently released a teaser video for some performance packages aimed towards the Toyota GT86 and the Subaru BRZ.
The two cheap sports cars, the Toyota GT86 and the Subaru BRZ, have all they need to start a new car cult and with the car manufacturers not planning any upgraded versions, a new tuning package signed by Cosworth is probably the missing link. The package, which has been named the FA-20, is upgrading the 2.0 liter naturally aspirated flat-four in the two sports cars, by using a turbocharger or a supercharger, along with an upgraded waste gate system.
As you probably already know by now, the Subaru BRZ and the Toyota GT86 are both powered by the 2.0 liter naturally aspirated boxer engine, signed by Subaru and fitted with the D-4S direct injection system made by Toyota. The total output of the engine stands at 200 HP, which is basically enough for a 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) sprint made in 7.6 seconds and a top speed of 233 km/h (145 mph). Both sports cars are coming with two transmission options, a 6-speed manual and a six-speed automatic.
