Subaru BRZ tS updated for the Japanese market

posted in: Subaru BRZ | 0


The “tuned by STI” version of the Subaru BRZ has been updated for the Japanese market. Unfortunately, what I thought would be a true BRZ STI yesterday, was not. They got me…

Only 300 of these new tS models will be sold, so if you are in Japan and in the market, it’s a good buy! No power has been added to this model, but the handling, braking and driving pleasure have all been improved over the last version.

Even though this is not the purebred STI version we all want, it’s a step in the right direction and it shows the engineers over at STI are hard at work tuning their cars.

Check out the full gallery of the tS and the all new Sunrise Yellow paint and technical details below.
