Subaru has revealed it will be producing supercharged and turbocharged STI version of the BRZ in the UK.
The BRZ was jointly developed with Toyota and it's engineers have fiercely ruled out a turbo version of the sister-model, the GT86.
Toyota is against using turbocharging technology in the GT86, preferring the driving experience of a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre Boxer.
Subaru’s STI version plans will help to further differentiate the BRZ from the GT86 which are currently the same price for the base level model at £24,995.
Subaru is hoping to attract “the ardent enthusiast seeking a more focused performance package”.
