Subaru BRZ STI LA concept

The 2011 Subaru BRZ STI LA concept was unveiled to the enthusiast public at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show, appearing as an all-new rear-wheel drive compact sports car developed from an ongoing joint-project between Toyota Motor Corporation and Subaru. Symbolizing the possibilities that Subaru has hold for the future, this concept beautifully embodies the ultimate handling performance. Thus, the front face becomes highly recognizable as Subaru because of the hexagonal lower front grille, hawk eye headlights and fin-shaped fog lamps. Because the engineers installed the Boxer engine as low as possible, the sleek roofline together with the low hood, create a sophisticated form. The inherent qualities of the engine incorporate compactness, light weight and high rigidity, pointing to the great potential of this sports car engine. The lively exterior ,,WR Blue Pearl II,, emphasizes the racing image, being a new generation of the iconic WR blue paint scheme. The ultimate handling performance is given by the extra weight reduction and an even lower center of gravity. Embodying the pure driving enjoyment only obtainable with a ,,Boxer sports car,,, the concept further boasts lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels featuring performance tires together with STI tuned suspension with excellent lateral stiffness. The dimensions of this eye-catching car model are 4,230 metres of length, 1,800 m of width and 1,280m of height.
