Ever since the release of the Subaru BRZ, many have been hankering over an STI version. Many felt that it just does not feel right for Subaru to have a performance model that’s without an STI variant.
Toyota has released a TRD version of the 86 recently and now it is Subaru’s turn. Subaru recently previewed the BRZ STI at the 2012 Australian International Motor Show in Sydney and it is rumoured that the car will be offered for sale pretty soon.
The concept vehicle shown was fitted with various STI parts and components and the highlight of these STI parts was the sporty looking bodykit. The bodykit consists of a matching coloured front spoiler, side skirts and a rear diffuser; plus a body-coloured trunk lid spoiler.
On top of that, other parts and accessories previewed were an adjustable front strut bar, 17 inch light weight alloy wheels, a coil spring set, a sports muffler and several interior parts such as an STI-badged gear knob and an instrument panel trim.
Nick Senior, managing director of Subaru Australia mentioned that many BRZ buyers would want to add some performance touches to their cars and choosing genuine Subaru equipment offers great design, quality and peace of mind that are not guaranteed by after market suppliers.
During the auto show, it was confirmed that these STI parts will be offered for the Australian market and there was no mention whether they will be available in other markets as well.
You might be wondering and asking; that’s it? No turbo or supercharger?
Subaru has always stressed that the company will only add more power to the BRZ with engine tuning management and addition of performance parts.
