The video below shows a Subaru BRZ development presentation, it's in Japanese but their is a slideshow showing us some exclusive stuff. The text below has been translated.







(1) Engine
Specially developed for high-efficiency engine with excellent environmental performance taking advantage of the design concept of the new generation boxer engine, revs rise comfortably to high rpm, naturally aspirated engine seems sport.
Bore × stroke, 86mm × 86mm.
• Adoption of a system (fuel injection) D-4S direct 噴技 technique takes advantage of Toyota's joint development.
· In order to achieve ultra-low center of gravity packaging, by devising the shape of the height of the intake manifold and oil pan, realizing a compact engine.



(2) exterior
Front
Ultra-low center of gravity by the packaging, as well as to achieve low engine hood, front fenders raised by, raise expectations of design to run.
In addition, the center of the star ornament Mutsure, headlamps and grille design configurations, such as hexagon, in the design of common Subaru.
Side
While fender flares accentuate the beauty of intonation functional by taking advantage silhouette low center of gravity, the tilt angle of the rear glass fusion, such as the shape and layout of the C-pillar, trunk lid, functional beauty that are friendly to aerodynamics. To express a sense of dynamism seems truncated overhangs front and rear sports car, the front fender has been added to the fine and sharp accent.
Rear
Express the beauty of the cabin from behind by contrast flare overhanging wheel and compact, and designed with a sense of stability and a sense of wide, runs through the corner.

(2) Transmission
Transmission development in order to achieve sports car is fun to manipulate, stuck to shift feel and response.
· 6MT is a short stroke shift lever, and optimization achieved a sense of rigidity, sense of moderation, of the load operation, the shift feel pleasant.
· E-6AT, set the M-mode S mode and choose any of the gear stick to response speed, enhanced responsiveness, combined with the adoption of the paddle shift and blipping control, Mel fun driving at the mercy of .



(3) Body
Developed a new lightweight high-rigidity body for realizing ultra-low center of gravity packaging.
• In order to achieve low driving position, adopted the concept of perimeter frame to the body and frame layout, low center of gravity.
Body, the skeletal structure to ensure the necessary strength to body rigidity and crash safety performance to achieve optimal athletic performance high, with the aim of both lightweight, rigidity and strength with consideration to the allocation.
· Aims to actively adoption of lightweight high-tensile steel, contributing to the adoption of a low center of gravity to the upper body in particular.
• The front hood is both the pedestrian protection performance styling and low vehicle height and weight by weighing while aluminum is adopted, to devise a structure.

(4) Chassis
Weighed in a balance of high-dimensional stability and driving maneuverability ultra-low center of gravity by making the packaging, provide direct reaction to the operation and sharp steering.
• The front strut suspension is a lightweight, high rigidity, the rear suspension employs a double wishbone excellent shock absorption.
· In order to achieve low front hood by packaging ultra-low center of gravity, suppressing the height of the strut mount while ensuring the stroke.
And tires, and (typical) 215/45R17, adopt a lightweight, high rigidity aluminum wheels.
· Adopted the Electronic Stability Control on all models, both of driving fun and safety.

not direct injection and prob not getting the 12:5:1 compression less torque an less power, direct injection makes a huge difference
