The Subaru BRZ production car has been officially unveiled at the Tokyo motor show, and the man behind the sports coupé has promised that it will offer "pure driving pleasure".
Toshio Masuda, Subaru product planning senior general manager, who led the development of the BRZ, has spoken about the challenges of creating the joint project with Toyota.
Masuda said: “The car you see here will make it to Europe with no changes. We’ve always had all-wheel drive and a turbo, so this is a new brand image for us. The packaging of the car is ideal to show off the best of the boxer engine."
According to the Masuda, the Subaru BRZ will remain in production for a long time in various guises: “Subaru is a sports brand. We first want to show you the base for BRZ and it will have a long life cycle and will consider future derivatives. There will be no turbo though.
“When you drive the car you will be surprised at just how good the handling and steering feel is.”
