Subaru Debuts Special Limited Edition BRZ

Special Editions / 5 Comments

Celebrating ten years of affordable sports car fun.

Feeling old? The Subaru BRZ first debuted in 2012. It's been 10 years. How about now? To commemorate you feeling old and beaten down by the passage of time (and also that BRZ thing) Subaru has launched a special 10th Anniversary Edition BRZ. Because Subaru is a Japanese automaker, that also means we won't see the special edition here in America, because Japanese automakers have no desire to profit from Americans with special edition cars.

Spite aside, the changes are relatively minor. Perhaps we won't miss it much after all.

Subaru says that only 200 cars will be made during the limited run. It's also more limited than that. You will only be able to buy one from July 28 to September 30. If Subaru hits 200 cars before then, you're out of luck. The car itself is based on the Japanese S trim, which is somewhat close to the Premium trim we get in this and the GR86 here in the States.

These models will net black badging and black wheels to differentiate them from other models. However, this special edition won't be getting special wheels. To compensate (but not really), the mirror caps are black as well. Inside, changes are similarly minor.

Subaru has added blue stitching throughout the car to match the World Rally Blue exterior paint. Moreover, Subaru has stitched the words "10th Anniversary" into the door card, just to the left or right of the seats. It's an odd place, as you won't be able to see that when you're sitting in the car based on our experience. The doors extend behind you in most cases.

Notably, no mechanical changes have been made. The car still makes 228 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque from a 2.3-liter Boxer-four of Subaru's own design. The Anniversary edition models will also be able to be ordered with either a manual or automatic transmission. You know which one to get.

If you're truly bummed about not getting this JDM special edition, we don't doubt that both Toyota and Subaru North America have something in the works for the car's 10th anniversary here in the States.
