The Subaru BRZ is a beautiful car. It’s one of the better sports coupes going around these days along with its twin, the Toyota 86. It’s great as a stock car, but as a tuned car, Crawford have managed to squeeze 450 horsepower from a 2-litre, rear-wheel drive BRZ. Holy crap.
Crawford are the people who built Gymkhana champ Ken Block’s first Subaru. They know what they’re doing when it comes to fast, tuned cars.
When it came to the Subaru BRZ, they decided to only let the engine do just over 1000 kilometres before they pulled it out completely and replaced it with a custom-built beast.
The guys over at Tuned jumped into the driver’s seat to put it through its paces, and from the looks of things, this is a Subaru that would likely have a less-experienced driver for breakfast. It’d be an exhilarating way to go, though.
What an incredible machine.
