With production of the 2013 Subaru BRZ well under way and demand far exceeding anything the Japanese company could have hoped for, the following video may act as yet another promotional tool for Subaru, despite the fact that it had nothing to do with the video.
After all, what’s better than free promotion?
Filmed by Speedracer38 (respected photographer Jason Thorgalsen), the video claims to have been filmed along Germany’s unrestricted Autobahn, with the YouTuber stating, “After a grueling 1,000 mile break-in period I was looking forward to see what the car was capable of. I shipped the car to the autobahn to do some high speed runs in the car and attempt the top speed” and the following video is a result of that quest.
However, in saying that, we have trouble believing the American went to that much trouble considering there are dozens of empty runways in the U.S. which could have been used instead.
Either way, the result is clear. The BRZ, despite its ‘underpowered’ 200HP four-cylinder boxer engine, has quite an impressive top speed with the speedo clocking 147mph in 6th gear.
Check out the video, and while watching it, try and take note of all those electronic systems beeping in the first 25 seconds.
We counted at least 23 individual beeps in a matter of seconds!
