The GT, that everybody wants

New York (USA), April 7, 2015

On the New York Auto Show ( 3 to 12 April 2015) surprised Subaru BRZ STI wrong with the performance concept. It is the large spoiler-heavy and officially 350 hp GT variant that have fans of the coupe always wanted. The problem: The car is a one-off. According to Subaru BRZ STI is primarily used to make the glorious tuning sub-brand of wheel manufacturer in the United States known. This is very a pity, because the New York study has become a true gem: Profound changes suspension, 18-inch wheels, Brembo brakes, a monumental rear spoiler, and a much more aggressive body kit make the sport rider - mouth water.

Turbo engine with 450 hp

At the latest when the engine saliva should then flow properly, because Subaru has replaced the slightly sluggish 200-horsepower Sucker boxer versus a 2.0 - liter turbocharged boxer from their own GT300 race car at the BRZ STI, in the Japanese GT championship fights for points. The unit produces 350 hp and 450 Newton meters, with a Subaru spokesman said this official figures were capped due to an agreement between Japanese producers for the fair. Actually, the car would make 450 hp. The force goes through a manual six-speed gearbox to the rear wheels.

Production version rather unrealistic

Information about the weight or the performance of the STI performance concept not previously made ​​Subaru. The stage appears not to be so important, because if you believe the statements Handle multiple Subaru Official at the New York show, the over-GT will not find their way to the dealer showrooms as quickly. The BRZ STI is the bandwidth of Subaru motorsport and tuning department show a production version is unlikely. (sw)
