The wait for the Subaru BRZ is almost over now as the company made it officially official today that the car will on display at the Tokyo Motor Show.
It is in fact will be side by side with its Toyota version, the FT-86. Based on the pictures we’ve seen so far of the BRZ, we have to say the Subaru is the better looking of the two. It is also said to be a bit more powerful than the FT and sportier in nature.
Here’s how Subaru describes their BRZ:
Concept Based on its product concept of “Pure Handling Delight”, at its core is the Horizontally-Opposed engine known for its light weight, compactness, and low center of gravity. That combined with Subaru’s rear-wheel drive platform, the SUBARU BRZ seeks a new level of lowness in center of gravity, one of the lowest in the world, and offers excellent handling performance. It is a sports car that can provide a pure handling delight experience to anyone behind the wheel.
Truth be told, we are far more excited about the other Subaru debut at the show, the Advanced Tourer Concept. That car, to all intents and purposes, is the new Legacy. It will spawn a saloon version that will be beautiful, good to drive, tough as hell and most importantly affordable. It will have all the ingredients of a truly great car.
