Subaru’s 2-door coupe is upgraded to participate in the Super GT300 race in Japan.
More than a month after the launch of the new generation of the BRZ, Subaru has revealed the racetrack version of the 2-door coupe. Specifically, the Subaru BRZ 2022 is upgraded for performance to compete in the Super GT300 race held in Japan.
Compared to the commercial version, Subaru’s racing car has a more aggressive appearance when equipped with a bodykit to increase aerodynamics.
Outstanding details can be mentioned such as the front undercarriage, the air intakes on the bonnet, side panels, rear diffuser and large spoiler. The Subaru BRZ is also painted mainly in black and has accent red details.
Developed by Subaru’s STI Performance division, the BRZ track version gets weight reduction using ultra-light BBS wheels, carbon fiber chassis and a new rearview mirror cluster.
From the outside images, it can be seen that the instrumental amenities and entertainment in the dashboard have been removed to reduce the weight of the vehicle. The cabin has an extra anti-roll frame to increase the rigidity of the chassis, as well as protect the driver in case of an incident.
The Japanese automaker did not publish the specific strength parameters of this racing model. In the commercial model, the Subaru BRZ 2022 is equipped with a naturally aspirated, 2.4-liter, 4-cylinder boxer engine that produces a maximum power of 228 hp and maximum torque of 249 Nm.
Most likely the race car will use a 6-speed manual transmission. Accompanying it is rear-wheel drive and Torsen anti-slip differential.
