Red Brakes & Yellow Paint Define 2017 Subaru BRZ Series. Yellow
They can’t call this Mellow Yellowby Mark McNabb, on
Subaru isn’t averse to making flashy cars. That’s blindly clear with a single glance at the BRZ’s latest special edition, the Series.Yellow. It comes coated in Charlesite Yellow that’s set apart by black badging and that raised rear spoiler on the trunk. The bright yellow color continues inside, too, with yellow contrast stitching and yellow accents on the door pulls and seats. Even the BRZ logo embroidered into the Alcantara seatbacks are yellow. But yellow isn’t the only color making this BRZ special. Red brake calipers signify the upgraded Brembo brakes, part of the Performance Package that’s standard on the Series.Yellow. Upgraded dampers from Sachs further make a compelling argument for this special edition. Subaru is limiting production to 500 examples in the U.S.
This isn’t the first time Subaru has done a colorful special edition BRZ. Subaru launched the Series.Blue for 2015 and the even bluer Series.Hyberblue for 2016.

This might be your car. Like having something that’s limited in quantity on a national level? Again, the Series.Yellow might be for you. Beyond the color and interior accents, the Series.Yellow is nothing more than a BRZ with the range-topping Limited trim and the optional Performance Package made standard. Still, it’s hard to argue against it – that is if you don’t mind the impossible-to-miss color.
