Subaru’s highly-anticipated sports car, the BRZ, will be shown to the American public for the first time at the 2012 Detroit Motor Show next week.
Sales of the 2013 Subaru BRZ will begin nationwide in late Spring. The car will introduces new standard for sports car with its low center of gravity, as a result of its boxer 2.0 liter engine, and the well-sorted chassis with RWD system.
The only downer is the output of this FA engine which is rated at 200 hp. It has to carry around a weight of 2,700lbs which isn’t particularly high, but 200 horsepower isn’t really enough for a proper sports car. The Subaru BRZ is available with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission.
Subaru has realized that too, and is already working on hotter versions of the BRZ with more power and more dramatic styling cues. The STi version is probably the one to go if you want a BRZ, but there’s no confirmed date on when it arrives.
U.S. Pricing of the Subaru BRZ is yet to be confirmed.
