Subaru has introduced a new Special Edition version of its popular BRZ coupe this week, adding a number of unique styling features.
Similar in appearance to last year’s BRZ S special, this new pack’s additional features sees the entry-level drive-away price increased from $37,150 to $40,650.
On the outside, the BRZ Special Edition picks up a set of classic GT racing stripes, along with STI goodies that include a boot lid spoiler, side skirts and a front lip, along with a rear under diffuser.
Dark 17-inch STI alloy wheels round out the exterior tweaks.
There’s more STI goodies in the cabin, including a push button start switch and, for the manual models, a short shift assembly and shift knob.
“This Special Edition represents tremendous value as it combines the recently announced MY15 enhancements, including suspension tweaks, with some fantastic kit that only adds to its outstanding on-road presence and reputation,” Subaru Australia boss Nick Senior said.
The BRZ's 147kW/205Nm 2.0 litre flat four again features, and continues to be offered with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic.
Subaru will be looking to the new special to give the BRZ a showroom boost, with year-to-date sales currently at 661 - down from 964 for the same period in 2013.
For August, the BRZ secured 72 new owners, against 91 in August last year.
