Subaru showed the world the BRZ STI concept at the 2011 Los Angeles Motor Show. At the launch of the BRZ in UK, Subaru’s global marketing manager, Atoshi Atake, dropped more information on the hotter version of the rear-wheel-drive coupe.

Mr Atake had the following comments, “We have already had many requests from interested customers regarding a faster version. Let me say this - we will certainly satisfy our customers. We are already working on a faster version." He added that the intake system can be developed together with a revised variable valve control system and a sports exhaust system. These modifications would boost the 2.0L flat-four’s output to about 250 bhp.

Subaru says that it will not turbocharge the engine as there is no space at the front of the engine bay for an intercooler. The option of a supercharger is not favoured as well, as it will make the BRZ a heavy drinker. The chassis of the BRZ also would not accommodate for a four-wheel drive system.

The new range-topping model is expected to receive a dramatic bodykit, stiffened and lowered suspension, lighter but larger 18-inch alloy wheels with upgraded brakes. Carbon-fibre roof and bonnet may be included as well. The interior will receive racing bucket seats. The BRZ STI is expected to weigh less than the standard car.

The BRZ enjoyed huge success in its domestic market, having sold 3,551 units in just 2 months after sales begun. The is four times of Subaru’s expected sales.

I have been a car fanatic since 1989, when my father was changing our family car then to a Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL fitted with a Twin Cam 16 valve engine that was carburetor-fed, a big deal back in those days. The automobile technology and industry fascinates me and I hope to broadcast these interesting developments to everyone out there through this blog.
