Japan Gets 2017 Subaru BRZ GT Range-Topper

Another #Subaru that won’t be making it over to North #America? Well, yes and no.

You see, what Japan gets as the range-topping version of the updated BRZ in the form of the new GT, we get in the States as the optional ‘Performance Package’ priced at $1,195 on the manual Limited model only.

In Japan, however, the new BRZ GT can be had as a separate trim with either a 6-speed manual gearbox that starts at 3,315,600 Yen ($31,900) or a 6-speed automatic from 3,375,000 Yen ($32,500), both paired to a standard 2.0-liter boxer engine.

As with the ‘Performance Package’ in the US, the GT trim adds Sachs dampers that are claimed to provide a more composed ride and better control while cornering, larger front and rear brakes with Brembo calipers for improved stopping power and greater fade resistance, and black painted 17-inch aluminum wheels.

The Alcantara and leather seats, the front heated, and a dedicated rear spoiler round out the BRZ GT’s upgrades.

The facelifted BRZ was announced in Japan in July, with the automaker releasing a special edition named “GT Yellow” with the same performance features, plus an exclusive yellow paint and interior décor, limited to 100 units, all of which have since been spoken for.
