Subaru UK secures more BRZ supply

Subaru UK has secured an increased supply of the BRZ for the British market, enabling it to better meet demand for the rear-wheel drive sports car.

The brand was faced with supply issues when the car launched in the UK in spring 2012 with thousands of enquiries from enthusiasts, but was left without stock to meet demand. The BRZ sister model, the Toyota GT-86, launched at the same time at the same price.

The increase in supply coincides with confirmation that a number of Subaru UK-approved BRZ performance, handling and styling modifications, courtesy of Pro-R, will soon be unveiled for the UK market.

The new parts will be available in the coming months through Subaru’s UK dealer network.

With a greater number of cars being brought into the country, in most cases buyers will be able to take delivery of a new BRZ within two to six weeks of placing an order, depending on final spec and colour choice.

Paul Tunnicliffe, Subaru UK, managing director: “The BRZ has been a sales success for us, but we’ve always struggled to match demand with supply.

“We’re hoping that our larger allocation will address this, and we’re confident that a greater number of car-loving buyers will now be able to appreciate the BRZ’s blend of light weight, usable power and fine handling characteristics.”

    Talk of increased BRZ sales is no more than fanciful rubbish, Subaru is not a creditable franchise - get real Subaru - ditch the importer and go direct or forget about it !
