Subaru has announced the BRZ tS, which hits the market today through the dealerships in Japan.

The inherent handling performance of the Subaru BRZ has been further enhanced by using expertise developed in motorsports while achieving the "strength and nimbleness" driving committed by STI. The "SUBARU BRZ tS" offers a driver "oneness with vehicle" and "agile handling pleasure".

The upgrades include 18" silver STI-designed wheels, Brembo brake kit, front add-on spoiler, STI rear suspension link with pillow ball bush, along with reworked coil springs and shock absorbers.

The interior boasts aluminum side sills, Alcantara applications and new front seats.

The engine is the well-known 2.0 liter boxer with 200HP (147 kW) and 205Nm of torque.

2013 Subaru BRZ tS is limited to just 500 units and all of them must be preordered before March 9, 2014.
