Subaru BRZ STi Sport: STi-Sportversion nur für den japanischen Markt

Mit dem BRZ STi Sport präsentiert Subaru auf der Tokyo Motor Show eine weitere verschärfte Version des BRZ, die nur für den japanischen Mark bestimmt ist.

Als Speerspitze der BRZ-Baureihe soll der Subaru BRZ STi Sport Fahrspaß und Qualität auf ein neues Niveau heben. Und das glauben wir gerne!

Umfangreiche Fahrwerksoptimierungen

Das Fahrwerk des Subaru BRZ STi Sport verfügt über flexible V-Streben und eine Versteifung der vorderen Aufhängung, die mit originaler STI-Technologie entwickelt wurde. 18-Zoll-Hochleistungsreifen auf exklusiven 18-Zoll-Aluminiumfelgen bilden den Kontakt zur Straße. Die von ZF hergestellten Sachs-Dämpfer und Schraubenfedern sollen das Lenkverhalten verbessern und sehr stabile Fahreigenschaften ermöglichen. Eine Bremsanlage von Brembo dürfte für ordentliche Verzögerungswerte sorgen.

Keine Änderungen am 200-PS-Boxer

Der 200-PS-Boxermotor wurde traditionell nicht modifiziert.

Das BRZ-STi-Sport-Exterieur schmücken exklusive Stoßfänger mit STI-Emblem vorn und ein spezieller Stoßfänger mit schwarz glänzenden Komponenten. Das in Bordeaux-Rot gehaltene Interieur überzeugt mit hochwertigen Materialien, darunter Leder und Alcantara für die Sitze.

Alles in allem also ein fahrdynamisch extrem fähiger Rennwagen für die Straße. Kleiner Haken: Vom Subaru BRZ STi Sport sollen nur 100 Einheiten produziert werden – und die sind für den japanischen Markt bestimmt…

Subaru Corporation today announced and began taking orders for the STI Sport, the new top of the Subaru BRZ lineup.

The Subaru BRZ STI Sport is a joint development with Subaru’s motorsports subsidiary, Subaru Tecnica International (STI).*1 It is positioned as the top of the Subaru BRZ lineup, taking the driving performance and quality feel, as well as the luxury feeling of the interior and exterior, to new levels. Along with the sharp handling performance in direct response to the driver’s intentions, both outstanding driving stability and a luxuriously comfortable ride are achieved. To complement this high driving performance, exclusive refined interior and exterior fittings have been adopted, maximizing the Subaru BRZ appeal.

The suspension system features flexible V-braces and flexible draw stiffener front suspension, developed with original STI technology. Exclusive 18-inch aluminum wheels and 18-inch high-performance tires are adopted. The use of SACHS dampers (made by ZF*2) and coil springs, specially tuned by STI, improves steering response and suppresses roll, achieving flexible but highly stable driving performance.

The exterior, highlighted by an exclusive front bumper with STI ornament and an exclusive fender garnish, adopts glossy black components. The special styling emphasizes strength and virility befitting the superb driving performance.

The color motif of the interior is specific to the STI Sport, featuring Bordeaux red coordination expressing the high quality and sportiness. Quality materials including real leather and Alcantara*3 are used for the seats. Exclusive components are adopted also for the instrument panel and its glare shield, and for the steering wheel, creating a sporty and special space.

An STI Sport Cool Grey Khaki Edition is to be sold, with cool grey khaki body, limited to 100 units (sold by lottery).
