Subaru BRZ STI Sport Concept Heads to Tokyo Auto Salon 2017

Subaru is debuting one good-looking BRZ at the Tokyo Auto Salon next month. The coupe, dubbed the Subaru BRZ STI Sport Concept, delivers a host of cosmetic upgrades and, according to the automaker, "STI-tuned driving performance."

The model is based on the BRZ GT that's sold outside of the U.S. Here, that model will be known as the BRZ with the Performance package when it arrives in late 2017. On top of special touches afforded by the Performance model, the concept adds unique bodywork, special 18-inch wheels, and STI badging. Open the doors, and you're greeted with a rich wine-colored interior.

Along with the special BRZ, the automaker will also showcase four race models, including the WRX STI NBR Challenge 2016 that won two consecutive championships in the SP3T class at the 24 Hours of Nrburgring race. The other three race-going models include the BRZ GT300 2016, WRX STI for Japan Rally Championship, and BRZ CG Robot Racing 2017. Also look for a WRX S4 STI Sport Concept as well as special STI versions of the Levorg and Impreza G4.

Can you make your car waltz around a city street or wooded backroad like Ken Block? Probably not. Of course, the inability to hold hundred-foot all-wheel-drive slides and place a front wheel within millimeters of a dock drop-off hasn’t stopped tens of thousands of Gymkhana fans from imitating their rally hero, on- or off-camera. Most do so with a modified

One of the most common flexes among the biggest automakers is to squirrel away examples of their best and rarest work over their history to eventually show off those pieces as an anthology.

Roll racing is having a moment – or at least it was before COVID hit and shut down a year’s worth of events.

In order to get the full story of Garage Active, and its animated founding father, you would need more than just a single feature.
