Subaru Launches BRZ tS for Japan Market

Subaru Tecnica International Inc. (STI) took the wraps off the Subaru BRZ tS (Tuned by STI), an enhanced version of the BRZ which adds "strength and nimbleness" effectively offering a driver "oneness with vehicle" and "agile handling pleasure".

Changes to the BRZ tS are limited to handling components (sorry, no turbocharger this time). The BRZ tS uses a large-diameter driveshaft and STI's unique flexible parts. Plus, the BRZ tS receives Brembo ventilated brakes as well as larger, 18-inch wheels and a STI designed front under spoiler. There's also a "STI / tS" fender garnish as well as a revised speedometer with the STI logo inside. The BRZ tS model is limited to 500 units including the 250 units of the GT PACKAGE.

Coinciding with the launch of the BRZ tS, a special GT PACKAGE is made available. The BRZ tS GT PACKAGE features a high-type dry carbon rear spoiler (actually nicked from the WRX STI S206), black 18-inch aluminum wheels, and Recaro front seats.
