BRZ is hot ticket
Subaru's BRZ sports coupe is selling out fast.
The first shipment of the much anticipated BRZ two door coupe which is due to arrive here in December is rapidly being snapped up by buyers.
Before going public, Subaru of New Zealand offered these cars to Subaru customers via the internet. Subaru customers had the chance to secure one of the 12 cars prior to public release. Wallis Dumper, Managing Director of Subaru of New Zealand said “The response took us by surprise as 8 units were snapped up within 6 hours”
Those outside Subaru’s customer base will have to move quickly to secure the final 4.
To secure a BRZ customers simply visit www.brz.co.nz where they can choose their colour and personalised euro plate preference, and pay a $1200 deposit to secure one of the twelve units due in December.
The final price has not been established between Subaru of New Zealand and Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI) the maker of Subaru vehicles, but Subaru of New Zealand has indicated that it would be below $60,000.
The first twelve BRZ’s also come with a bonus three year service plan, personalised Euro style number plate and an exclusive track day experience.
Features include 17 inch alloy wheels, limited slip differential, dusk sensing Xenon headlights, an engine immobilizer, ventilated disc brakes on all wheels, Vehicle Dynamics Control, cruise control and dual zone climate air conditioning.
The front midships mounted Boxer engine develops 147 kWs and the car has been a sellout success in Japan. International motoring magazines have described the BRZ as the best Japanese sports car since the NSX.
Further shipments of the BRZ will be available in 2013.
