2013 Subaru BRZ Sports Coupe Specs, Handling, Center of Gravity & Low Weight
new 2013 Subaru BRZ was engineered with the fundamentals of a sports
coupe in mind. The all new 2013 Subaru BRZ weighing only 2,762 lbs.,
makes this rear-wheel drive sports car the lightest in the U.S. market.
The 2013 BRZ has the lowest center of gravity, 18.1 inches is the exact
measurement, and its all thanks to the Subaru FA-Series 2.0-liter Boxer®
engine. It may be a smaller engine, but its power helps the BRZ reach
its low center of gravity. The new engine brings light weight, high
power, high compression, high-revving reflex and a 7,400-rpm redline.
The new Boxer engine has incredible torque that curves the peak at an
estimated 150 foot/pounds and gives a strong midrange making the BRZ
responsive to all driving styles.
The 2013 BRZ gives you the option of six-speed
manual or a six-speed automatic transmission, both engineered to give
you maximum performance with your driving. The six-speed automatic
transmission model BRZ comes with paddle shifters and offers Sports mode
for the sporty feel. The BRZ brings the capability to shift manually
using handle shifters or steering wheel paddle-shifters. The six-speed
manual comes with a short-throw shifter, and manual transmission pedals
are optimized for a comfortable "heel-and-toe" downshifting.
