The New 2013 Subaru BRZ Sports Coupe will soon be arriving in the San Diego, California Area and will add another option to the Subaru line-up of cars. The Subaru BRZ will be the first and only mass-produced front mounted horizontally-opposed engine, rear-wheel drive sports car in the world. Subaru Engineers developed the new 2013 BRZ with the fundamentals of the original sports car in mind keeping the vehicle weight low, and creating an ultra-low center of gravity to create precision steering that out-performs other cars in its class.

The new 2013 Subaru BRZ was engineered with a purist approach, returning to the roots of sports coupe design. The all new 2013 Subaru BRZ weighs in at an estimated 2,762 lbs., making it the lightest closed rear-wheel drive sports car in the U.S. market today. The 2013 BRZ has one of the lowest centers of gravity of any production car at just 18.1 inches, thanks to the all-new Subaru FA-Series 2.0-liter Boxer® engine. This new smaller, but powerful engine helps the BRZ achieve the ultra-low center of gravity. This new engine combines light weight with high strength, high compression and high-revving responsiveness, with a 7,400-rpm redline. The engine's broad torque curve peaks at an estimated 150 foot/pounds and offers a strong midrange making the BRZ feel responsive in everyday driving.
The 2013 BRZ will come with a choice of a six-speed manual and an optional six-speed automatic transmission, both are engineered to maximize driving feel and performance. The six-speed automatic transmission model BRZ comes equipped with paddle- shifters and allows the driver to select Sport mode for firmer automatic shifting. The driver also has the capability to shift manually using the shifter handle or the steering wheel paddle-shifters. The six-speed manual comes equipped with a short-throw shifter, and the pedals in the manual transmission model have been optimized for "heel-and-toe" downshifting.
