UPDATE: Subaru has released official images and details of its BRZ tS pack. Article updated.

When an STI-badged BRZ was teased on Subaru's Japanese consumer website over the weekend, virtually every car fan with an internet connection went into a froth.

The assumption was that it was the much-rumoured turbocharged version of the BRZ , but the reality was far less exciting. Instead, say hello to the BRZ tS, a lightly-tuned Japanese-market special edition of Subaru's lightweight RWD sports car.

Subaru already sells the WRX in Japan with the "tS" moniker, which stands for "Tuned by STI".

Like the WRX tS, the BRZ tS sports mild modifications centred on handling and cosmetics. There are aero add-ons for the front lip, sideskirts and rear bumper, which are matched by new lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels.

These exterior parts were previewed in November last year, when a prototype was spotted orbiting the Nurburgring Nordschliefe.

The BRZ tS' limited production run of 500 cars will be comprised of an even split of low and high grade models.

The tS entry point gets lower springs, a sports exhaust muffler, front strut tower bar, some interior addenda and the aforementioned body kit.

Opting for the high-grade tS GT brings Bilstein dampers, a lightweight driveshaft, six-piston Brembo brakes and a carbon fibre rear wing.

Selling for the equivalent of $46,600 for the BRZ tS GT, it's hardly cheap.

In Japan the BRZ in its most heavily-optioned form costs roughly $32,900, so forking out an additional $14,000 for some rather mild upgrades seems more than a little extravagant.

Then again, we won't have to worry about any of that. The Subaru BRZ tS is not slated to be released outside of Japan.

The Subaru BRZ is currently on sale in Australia for $37,150 (before on-road costs), and is sold exclusively through the brand's consumer website.
