brz sti

As the most interesting little sports car for young car fans, Subaru BRZ and Toyota GR86, which were just released last month, have appeared in the Japanese Super GT race scene recently! This time, Subaru also brought a new generation of BRZ STI with STI sports kit for preview. Compared to the regular version of BRZ, this time, the STI division of Subaru replaced the BRZ STI with a set of STI's own exhaust liner, and with an exaggerated carbon fiber tail fin, the overall look is more fighting.

According to the photos of BRZ STI this time, the STI department of Subaru has created an STI exclusive sports kit for the new generation of BRZ, including the front lip, small side skirt, and the aerodynamic kit composed of the rear bumper wrap Angle, and the wing panels on both sides also have more exaggerated style of air guide panels. But the most prominent feature is the carbon fiber GT tail mounted on the rear, which has the flavor of previous STI performance cars.

Of course, the STI version of the BRZ is no frills. In addition to a more combat-looking kit, the STI department has upgraded the chassis of the BRZ STI, including a completely new exhaust system. In addition to the crucial walking system, BRZ STI changed into an 18-inch five-frame bronze BBS RI-A lightweight wheel with Michelin Pilot Sport performance tires of 215/40R18, the BRZ STI on display on the scene was equipped with stronger springs. The low body was lowered by a further 10 mm, and the front and rear STI rods were installed to further improve handling performance.

In terms of power, although no official numbers have been given, STI will definitely upgrade it in the future. For reference, the next-generation BRZ is powered by a 2.4L horizontally opposite engine codenamed FA24, capable of producing a maximum horsepower of 230 HP and a maximum torque of 249 N·M. With a six-speed self-displacement and optional manual transmission, the BRZ can reach 100 in just 6.3 seconds, which is an overall improvement over the previous BRZ.

Just according to the "coffee law", Subaru may not introduce BRZ, domestic players can only look forward to Toyota GR86, but STI provided by the modified ideas can still be applied to the future imported into China GR86. Guys, what do you think of Subaru's new BRZ STI?
