2012 Subaru BRZ Prologue news, pictures, and information
FHI Introduces 'SUBARU BRZ PROLOGUE'Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI), the manufacturer of Subaru automobiles, unveiled the 'SÚBARÚ BRZ PROLOGÚE - BOXER Sports Car Architecture II -' at the 64th Frankfurt Motor Show.
'SÚBARÚ BRZ PROLOGÚE' embodies the technology concept of the 'SÚBARÚ BRZ', an all-new rear-wheel drive (RWD) sports car, currently under joint development wîth Toyota Motor Corporation. Built around Subaru's core technology - the Horizontally-Opposed Boxer engine, a new platform was developed in order to extract the maximum performance potential required of the RWD sports car.
The architecture employs the totally new 2.0-litre Subaru Boxer engine exclusively designed for the new sports car. In addition to renewing the bore and stroke, by adopting Toyota's direct injection and port injection technology - 'D-4S', it creates higher output and better environmental friendliness to achieve sporty properties best-suited for the new generation sports car.
SÚBARÚ BRZ is currently under development wîth an ambition of Subaru and Toyota to provide driving pleasure to a wider range of customers by making full uses of both companies' expertise, and its start of production is expected in spring 2012. Thanks to its front-engine, rear-wheel drive layout; further lowered centre of gravity; and compact and lightweight body, SÚBARÚ BRZ delivers new ways to enjoy 'Pure Handling Delight' driving experience.Source - Subaru
