Seibon Carbon was established in Los Angeles in '03 with an office only big enough for one desk, a computer, a printer, and some inventory. Today, they specialize in various carbon fiber products for many makes and models using materials made from deluxe French and US-made carbon. We can attest to its product's high quality, as we have Seibon parts on our own cars. But biases aside, you'll soon realize why this 2013 Subaru BRZ is worth the spotlight.
During the body kit selection process, the Seibon staff considered a kit that was rare for an FR-S or BRZ, ultimately opting for the Varis body kit. However, when you order a Varis kit, it doesn't include the hood, the front diffuser and the GT wing that's used in the Varis demo car. Alternatively, Seibon installed its own VS-Style hood and duckbill CSL-Style trunk to complete the look.
Seibon was determined to set this build apart from the front to the rear with its custom Avery Blue vinyl wrap. The A'PEXi N1 EXV coilovers brings the ZC6 chassis closer to the pavement, and in the wheel wells is a set of lightweight Gram Lights 57Xtremes.
The FA20 motor was taken to a new level with a Kraftwerks supercharger kit. The Rotrex C30-94 unit is unique in that it doesn't share belts with other engine accessories and has a self-contained lubrication and cooling system for better reliability. At the moment, the blower helps the BRZ produce 275hp, but with the Kraftwerks kit being easily upgradeable, 400hp is in the near future.
The interior is where Seibon blurs the line between show car and racecar. In the rear is Seibon's original seat delete, while in the front is a single Bride Stradia II Reims bucket seat.
Street cred will only last until you're proven right or wrong. When Seibon started out, it went up against well-established companies, but the origins of Seibon began with enthusiasts. Needless to say, the company worked hard from its days in a small office to build its huge factory and reinvent its brand image to what you see today.
In a time when the aftermarket industry is in post decline, it's encouraging to have quality parts readily available. The "Z" in BRZ stands for "zenith," and Seibon's carbon game is undoubtedly at its highest point.
