The Subaru BRZ has been recently taken out for a test drive on the Isle of Man, where speed limits are seen rarer than elves.
After being officially presented to the public six months ago and then making its way onto several markets world-wide, the Subaru BRZ is once again entering our news, this time with an interesting test drive performed by Automobile Magazine’s Jason Camissa. The automotive journalist has taken the Japanese sports car to the Isle of Man, where there aren’t any speed limits. What came out of that can be seen in the video posted right after the jump. Enjoy!
As a quick reminder, the Subaru BRZ is available in two trim levels in most markets , the SE and the SE Lux, and the base version is getting standard features like the push-button start, dual-zone air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, electrically folding mirrors, leather gearlever, leather handbrake, ESP, iPod connectivity, six-speaker steror system, torque-sensing limited slip differential and 17-inch alloy wheels. Power to the Subaru BRZ is provided by the same engine found on the Toyota GT 86 and on the Scion FR-S, the Subaru developed 2.0 liter four-cylinder unit with Toyota’s D-4S direct injection system, which is producing a total output of 197 BHP, sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed manual transmission in standard or through a six-speed automatic, available as an option.
