The Subaru BRZ (codenamed ZC6) is a compact sports car by Subaru.
- Text originally from the Subaru BRZ's Wikipedia page.
The BRZ's name comes from three elements: Boxer engine, Rear-wheel drive, and Z standing for the zenith. The Subaru BRZ differs from the 86's design in the front fascia, with a different grille and headlight assembly, as well as a different front fender vent. The BRZ's grill is hexagonal in shape, compared to the Toyota's trapezoid. The BRZ features a wraparound of LED parking lights in the headlight assembly, while daytime running lights are integrated into the bumper. The suspension setup of the Subaru is different from the Toyota. Like the Japanese Toyota 86, Subaru offers an RA base model lacking most interior comforts and utilizing 16 inch steel wheels, with the only difference from the 86 RC being that the BRZ RA's bumpers are painted the same color as the body. Two main trim levels are offered: R trim, known as Premium in North America, and S trim, known as Limited in North America. The most notable differences between the trims being the S trim (Limited) received leather seats with alcantara inserts that were heated rather than the cloth seats in the R trim (Premium). in European and Australian BRZs offer a Toyota stereo unit, while Japanese and North American vehicles use a Subaru unit. Australian BRZs were originally available for sale only online.
The Subaru BRZ appears as a Class D car with the following statistics:
- Starting rank: 408
- BHP: 200.00
- Grip: 6.00
- Acceleration: 5.77
- Weight: 2,775.59
- Final rank: 510
The Subaru BRZ's main strength is its rapid acceleration with a reaction time only requiring a rolling start that is 9/10s of a second away from the countdown. In practice, this is of little benefit as the BRZ lacks the top speed needed to utilize the acceleration and will be closely matched with the Ford Fiesta ST in 1/4 mile races for all weather conditions. For 1/2 mile races, the Fiesta is the better option as the BRZ's low the top speed worsens its potential times.
Between the Subaru BRZ, Ford Fiesta and the Dodge Dart GT, the BRZ is the second-best option as the game and class' starter car and it is capable of the following times:
|Length & Weather||BRZ||Fiesta||Dart|
|1/4 mile normal||8.7||8.7||8.9|
|1/4 mile rain||9.4||9.5||9.6|
|1/4 mile snow||10.3||10.2||10.4|
|1/2 mile normal||14.7||14.6||15.1|
|1/2 mile rain||15.8||15.7||15.9|
|1/2 mile snow||16.7||16.4||16.8|
