Or so STI would have us believe.
Unveiled in Japan by Subaru Tecnica International (STI), this is the BRZ tS that the carmaker has dubbed the “STI complete car (sic).” While the 2.0-liter four-pot remains unchanged, continuing to pack a 200-hp punch, the new higher spec model does come with an STI-tuned suspension, revised damping, a flexible front draw stiffener and a bigger drive shaft. Other mods to the chassis include Brembo brakes housed in black 18-inch rims, a specially-tuned Vehicle Dynamics Control, and custom filter for the Sound Creator.
The body has been upgraded with a new under spoiler, bumpers, front fender and shark fin antenna, while the cabin boasts a bespoke speedometer, push button ignition, Recaro bucket seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel and carbon-fiber trim. Production of the BRZ tS STI will be limited to 300 units priced from $32,600, and will be available in Crystal White Pearl, Crystal Black Silica and Sunrise Yellow.
