Initially, as world-wide demand is extremely high, we will bring in one variant of BRZ, the highest spec available (shown on the Allocation system as 'high spec'). This is the vehicle you saw at Coleshill. The main features are as follows:
•17" alloy wheels
•Torque sensing rear LSD
•Front, side, curtain and knee airbags
•Dual-zone automatic air-con
•Radio CD player with 6 speakers
•USB & iPod connector
•Front fog lamps
•LED Daytime Running Lamps
•Body coloured, electric folding, heated door mirrors
•Heated front seats
•Keyless entry with Push Button Start
•Leather steering wheel & gear knob
Later in the year we will introduce a second derivative without the heated leather seats (shown on the Allocation system as 'mid spec')
Following that, a further 'stripped out' derivative aimed at those customers who wish to tune and fettle the BRZ to their own specification will be made available (shown on the Allocation system as 'low spec').
As yet, naming conventions have not been decided hence, referring to the three models and high, mid and low spec.
Subaru have done everything they can to keep the weight and centre of gravity of the vehicle as low as possible. As we know, reducing body-roll is one of the key tenets of Subaru's engineering philosophy, as less body roll equates to greater stability and grip. As a result, the BRZ is an incredibly compact package: it is the world's smallest RWD 2+2 coupe (4,240mm x 1,775mm x 1,425mm) and has the lowest centre of gravity of almost any vehicle on the road: 460mm. This means more than half the mass of the car is below knee-height.
The BRZ features a 2.0litre FA Boxer engine with Direct Injection technology that produces 200ps and 205Nm of torque in a body that weighs just 1,220kg, that's a power to weight ratio of 164ps/tonne.
This all adds up to a driver focussed car intent on delivering the most engaging driving experience possible.
It will be available with 6 speed short-shift manual and paddle operated automatic gearboxes.
The BRZ will initially be available in two colours: Sterling Silver Metallic and WR Blue Mica. The latter being exclusive to Subaru. Later in the year as additional production becomes available we will also add four more colours: Satin White, Crystal Black Silica, Dark Grey Metallic & San Remo Red . As per the rest of the range, the special paint finishes will attract an additional charge.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LEZnSHnWang
