Subaru of America has introduced the 2017 BRZ Series Yellow special edition at a Subaru enthusiast event, Wicked Big Meet, which took place at the Stafford Motor Speedway in Stafford Springs, CT.
The company will make only 500 units of this special edition coupe, which goes on sale in 2017.
Performance enhancements on the BRZ Series Yellow include friction reduction, a new aluminum intake manifold and a redesigned exhaust manifold. Those modest tweaks help boost engine output to 205 horsepower and 156 lb-ft of torque on the 2.0-liter Subaru Boxer engine, which is coupled to a six-speed manual transmission.
Brakes have been upgraded to Brembo four-piston calipers and rotors at the front and dual-piston units at the back. SACHS Performance shock absorbers have been fitted for better handling while the Series Yellow also gets updated coil springs, a larger rear stabilizer bar, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels and a more rigid chassis.
The interior gets a finish in black leather and Alcantara with contrasting yellow stitching throughout the cabin. The front seats come embroidered with a yellow BRZ logo.
New for the BRZ in 2017 are also “kono-ji” style LEDs with Daytime Running Lights (DRL), a pedestal-style aluminum rear spoiler, and full LED’s at the rear too.
