Well whatever it is, the BRZ will now come in a stripped down variant just like the GT 86 RC model, but the BRZ RA will be a little more appealing with the bumpers painted.
Other than that, the BRZ RA will be just like the GT 86, coming with 16-inch steel wheels, unpainted door handles and mirror caps, no fog lights and some of the interior amenities also removed including the air conditioning and stereo. Performance-wise, the factory rear limited-slip differential has been tossed out – assuming those that purchase this model will get an aftermarket unit – and the rear brakes are no longer vented.
The Subaru BRZ RA is priced slightly higher than the Toyota GT 86 RC, coming in at 2,058,000 Yen or around $26,900 based on today’s conversion rates. Either way, it’s a whole lot less than the standard model – almost a $6,500 in savings.
