Subaru has announced a new special edition of its BRZ sports car called the Series.Blue, but the name seems to only be half correct.
That’s because half of the 1,000 units that are being produced will be offered in Crystal White Pearl, while the other 500 will be finished in WR Blue Pearl.
It’s also only half right because while there are plenty of STI details, they don’t come with STI-level performance.
Power still comes from a 2.0-liter boxer four-cylinder engine that makes 200 hp, while handling performance is upgraded only through aerodynamic enhancements.
Added downforce comes from STI front, side, and side-rear under spoilers, while underbody panels take the car’s coefficient of drag from 0.28 to 0.27. Added style will come from black-painted 17-inch STI wheels complete with red-painted brake calipers.
For interior content, this special edition is based on the BRZ Limited trim, and gets leather and Alcantara upholstery along with blue leather seat bolsters and head restraints. Blue stitching is continued throughout the entire interior, while silver BRZ logos are embroidered into the seats and floor mats.
Subaru will sell the BRZ Series.Blue for a price of $30,285 including destination.
