It seems that the theme of the week on Car Rolodex has been the “Tokyo Triplets”, who are also known as the Subaru BRZ, Toyota GT-86 and the Scion FR-S. Our coverage of these highly anticipated cars continues today as we have uncovered a pair of Japanese based videos showcasing the Subaru variant of the trio.
The first vid is short but gets its point across rather well, which is of course that when you rev the co-developed Subaru/Toyota 2.0-liter engine the car will respond with what can only be described as a uniquely flat 4 sound track. We can’t wait to hear the addition of a turbo blow off valve as the FA20 engine has been slated to get the additional hardware when the WRX version of the BRZ is launched. Today however if you are curious as to what 200hp sounds like in a low slung 2+2 rear wheel drive sports car you will have to look no farther than below.
The second video released by “SubaruOnTube” is comprised of some slick looking CGI of the BRZ engine components in action. If you are not 100% familiar with what a horizontally opposed boxer engine looks like this video will help out. We can’t say that the Japanese techno beats were 100% necessary, fortunately it is also a short clip so it shouldn’t drive you to crazy.
