2012 Subaru BRZ Concept STI

Subaru has already promised we would see the production version of their long rumored BRZ Concept in December at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show, but they’re soaking in as much publicity as they can get until then with the BRZ STI Concept unveiled at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show.

The BRZ STI Concept’s exterior shines with a hexagonal front grille, hawk eye headlights, fin-shaped fog lamps, an aero-tuned lower front spoiler and unique rear fascia, a rear wing for added down-force, and a carbon-fiber roof to lower its already record setting center of gravity specification. At the rear, Subaru has affixed polished stainless-steel quad-tailpipes, bold rear fender flares, and a large rear-diffuser. The car is painted in a "WR Blue Pearl II" paint finish and sits on a new set of 18-inch wheels.

Under the hood, there’s a 2.0-liter naturally-aspirated four-cylinder boxer engine which was designed with a square bore and stroke of 86 X 86 mm. Nothing has been said about the vehicle’s final output, but previous rumors suggested that the STI version would deliver up to 300 HP. It was also rumored that the BRZ would come with a very low center of gravity and optimal weight distribution. These rumors turned out to be 100% correct with the Subaru BRZ STI engine sitting lower than in any other Subaru model - 4.7 inches lower - and positioned 9.4 inches closer to the center of the chassis.

The Subaru BRZ will go into production in the spring of 2012.

The aesthetic design of this Concept is really looking so fabulous at it, and it already looks great on its body paint. I also noticed that its fin-shaped fog lamp is absolutely looking very cute on this STI!

I love the hawk eye headlight of this STI. It looks so cool on it. smiley I also notice that it looks bald on its exterior detailing, but it is very appealing with that. Anyway, I’m too disappointed on its power output.

It is already looks so great on its body paint, and I must say that I barely see cars having that color, that’s why it’s kind of unique to me. smiley Anyway, I hope that on its next updated article about it, they also include some pictures of its interior.

The fin-shaped fog lamp of this concept is absolutely so striking. Anyway, I hope that they also include some pictures of its interior, additionally I have to agree that it really looks great on its body paint.

I hope that its engine is just enough of it, to beat its competitor. Anyway, I could say that it is already looking great on its body paint, and it looks so classy on that.

The Subaru concept is still so impressive for me, for the fact that it is very reliable on the road and even on the race. smiley I just only hope that its engine is quite good enough for it.

The hexagonal front grille of this Subaru is looking so awesome on it even the hawk eye headlights for it, is only adds more appeal for this one. I also noticed that its polished stainless-steel quad-tailpipe is really striking about it.

I just simply love the simplicity of this Concept of Subaru, and I have to agree that it is already looking great on it sleek and plain body paint. I just don’t think either that the engine of this one, could give a better performance on it.

I am hoping that the engine of this one, will be good enough for it, so that it can have a better performance. By the way, if I’m not mistaken this one is a race car right? Well, I simply love this one.

I must say that it is already looking great on its body paint. However, I’m quite curious on its interior features of this one, well I hope they also include some pictures of it on the next updated news about it.

The Subaru BRZ concept is really a good-looking car on its aesthetic design and sleek blue body paint, but I had a doubt on its engine. I just don’t think that it can give a better performance on this race car.
