Tokyo, June 30, 2015 – Subaru Tecnica International Inc. (STI)*1 today announced the release of the “Subaru BRZ tS”, which goes on sale on June 30 through Subaru dealerships in Japan.
Subaru BRZ tS is an STI complete car which achieves both “agile handling performance evoking a racing car” and “a high-quality ride” at a high level. STI further enhanced the base car’s chassis performance by using expertise developed in its motorsport activities, pursuing the rear-wheel drive sports car’s “inherent handling pleasure enabling drivers to control it at will”.
Exclusive tuning such as adoptions of STI’s unique flexible parts embodies highly responsive handling performance. Driving performance has also been enhanced by adoptions of “brembo” ventilated disc brakes, 18-inch aluminum wheels and a front under spoiler. The model comes with special features including the “STI” / “tS” ornaments and exclusively-made fender garnish on the exterior as well as “Recaro”-designed front bucket seats exclusively made for STI and a speedometer with an STI logo inside, which evoke driving excitement and pleasure of ownership.
Body colors available are Sunrise Yellow*2, WR Blue Pearl, Crystal White Pearl and Crystal Black Silica. The model’s production will be limited to 300 units*3.
