The all-new Subaru BRZ sports coupé has gone on sale in Australia. Priced from A$37,150 Drive-away for the manual, Subaru’s first and only rear-wheel-drive model in Australia will be sold exclusively online, directly from Subaru Australia.
Demand for the BRZ worldwide is so high that Subaru Australia is only expected to secure around 201 units for this year and only one variant will be brought in.
“High demand with short supply gave us some challenges on how to give our customers the best possible purchases experience. We believe that online purchase will provide transparency in supply, pricing and delivery expectations that match our high standards,” said Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia.
“Additionally, we have appointed a BRZ coordinator who will be a dedicated point of contact for BRZ customers. Our aim is to provide an exclusive experience. Every BRZ we sell will be numbered and customers will be able to log on and receive updates on the status of their BRZ,” he continues.
Most of us already know the BRZ was jointly developed with the Toyota 86, but just to recap, both vehicles are powered by a 147kW 2.0 litre four-cylinder horizontally opposed Boxer engine.
For those who are ready to purchase one, you will need to log on to subaru.com.au at 12 noon today, 16 July 2012 when orders will go ‘live’. For those who are unable to access internet at home, they are advised to go to their nearest dealer where special computers will be set up.

The BRZ is available in seven unique colours:
- WR Blue Mica (exclusive)
