“One of the year’s most anticipated motorsport packages was unveiled at the Australian International Motor Show (AIMS) today, in the form of a potent track-ready Subaru BRZ.
Subaru Australia is displaying the latest creation from long-term partner, New Zealand-based Possum Bourne Motorsport (PBMS).
Subaru enjoyed a decade of dominance in the Australian Rally Championship, working alongside PBMS.
Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “We’re delighted to display the PBMS BRZ motorsport project car.
“This car will take the BRZ thrill to a whole new level for those that want some serious trackwork.”
Mr Senior said while Subaru Australia had no current plans to re-enter the motorsport arena itself, the overwhelmingly positive response to BRZ had brought a huge level of enquiry from motorsport enthusiasts.
“There’s a massive level of interest among motorsport fans, so we’re keen to tap into that market.
“From day one we have always imagined the BRZ would appeal to the ‘weekend warriors’ – people who enjoy club level motorsport activities.
“PBMS has developed packages that will appeal to these enthusiasts. It is a company that has developed an international reputation for excellence in engineering and fastidiousness in attention to detail.”
PBMS have a huge list of options for the motorsport BRZ and basically customers can start with an entry-level price and then cherry-pick components to suit their purposes.

The entry-level package includes:
Rollcage kit, including installation
