FHI Introduces "SUBARU BRZ PROLOGUE"

Tokyo, September, 13 - Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. (FHI), the manufacturer of Subaru automobiles, unveiled the "SUBARU BRZ PROLOGUE - BOXER Sports Car Architecture II -" at the 64th Frankfurt Motor Show. (Press day: September 13 and 14; Open to the public from September 15 through 25, 2011)

"SUBARU BRZ PROLOGUE" embodies the technology concept of the "SUBARU BRZ", an all-new rear-wheel drive (RWD) sports car, currently under joint development with 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.

SUBARU BRZ is currently under development with 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, SUBARU BRZ delivers new ways to enjoy "Pure Handling Delight" driving experience.

Major Specifications
Body size (Overall: Length x Width x Height): 4,200 x 1,770 x 1,270 mm
Wheelbase: 2,570 mm
Engine type: 2.0-litre direct injection naturally-aspirated

I'm really excited to test the new Subaru Boxer engine that has Toyota's D-4S technology, both brands make amazing vehicles and bulletproof engines. With technology from both brands combined this should be a really impressive engine.
