BRZ Gets Motorsport Mods

Thu, 18/10/2012

 

One of the year’s most anticipated motorsport packages was unveiled at the Australian International Motor Show (AIMS) today, in the form of a potent track-ready Subaru BRZ.    

Subaru Australia is displaying the latest creation from long-term partner, New Zealand-based Possum Bourne Motorsport (PBMS).

Subaru enjoyed a decade of dominance in the Australian Rally Championship, working alongside PBMS.

Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “We’re delighted to display the PBMS BRZ motorsport project car.

“This car will take the BRZ thrill to a whole new level for those that want some serious trackwork.”

Mr Senior said while Subaru Australia had no current plans to re-enter the motorsport arena itself, the overwhelmingly positive response to BRZ had brought a huge level of enquiry from motorsport enthusiasts.

“There’s a massive level of interest among motorsport fans, so we’re keen to tap into that market.

“From day one we have always imagined the BRZ would appeal to the ‘weekend warriors’ - people who enjoy club level motorsport activities.

“PBMS has developed packages that will appeal to these enthusiasts. It is a company that has developed an international reputation for excellence in engineering and fastidiousness in attention to detail.”

PBMS have a huge list of options for the motorsport BRZ and basically customers can start with an entry-level price and then cherry-pick components to suit their purposes.

PBMS has developed three track-ready packages.

The entry-level package includes:

  • Rollcage kit, including installation
  • Recaro motorsport seats
  • Sabelt six-point harness
  • Fuel system modifications, including lines and connectors
  • Carbonfibre lightweight parts, including door panels

The upscale package, displayed at AIMS, adds:

  • Drivelineand suspension modifications, including Cusco height and damper adjustable coilover suspension
  • Brake package, including AP front and rear rotors and calipers and STI handbrake
  • Electrical kit, including wiring, circuit breakers and lightweight battery
  • Recaro winged-HANS seats
  • Enkei 18 x 8.0 lightweight wheels and Pirelli P-Zero Trofeo R motorsport tyres.

A third option includes a complete performance parts package, including engine and gearbox enhancements, priced to suit individual requirements.

PBMS can also completely strip the car and offers a painting/colour change service too.  

Production BRZ continues to be retailed exclusively online in Australia, at https://buybrzonline.subaru.com.au/
