As the phenomenally successful collaboration between Subaru and Toyota the BRZ has been met with widespread critical acclaim and manic consumer demand. The classy and potent BRZ sports a new Subaru flat-four with 200 horsepower and rear-wheel drive. It is a spirited daily driver that is ready for the track out of the box.
— forzamotorsport.net[1] 

The 2013 Subaru BRZ is a sport compact that debuted in the February Jalopnik Car Pack for Forza Horizon and appears in every Forza main title.

The BRZ is also featured as a Horizon Edition car in Forza Horizon 3 and as a Forza Edition car in Forza Motorsport 7.

Background

The name BRZ is an abbreviation for boxer engine, rear-wheel drive, and zenith. The BRZ, codenamed ZC6, was developed in cooperation with Toyota, whom also sells the car as the Toyota GT86 and Scion FR-S, with the latter having ceased production after the discontinuation of Scion. Each model is a rear-wheel drive sports car powered by a Subaru-designed flat-four engine.

The BRZ along with its Toyota counterpart received a facelift in 2017.[2]

Characteristics

The BRZ is based on a light front-engine rear-wheel drive platform that weighs 2764 lb (1254 kg) and has a front weight distribution of 55%. Its engine is an aluminium block 2 litre flat-four codenamed FA20 with 197 hp (147 kW) at 7000 rpm and 151 ft·lb (205 N·m) of torque at 6400 rpm. The BRZ is available with a six-speed manual or automatic torque converter transmission.[3]

Edition variants

The Horizon Edition is a special variant featured with an XP boost and performance upgraded to the top of Class S1. It is fitted with a Rocket Bunny wide body kit and the Toyota Supra RZ's engine, and painted in a prismacolor black color scheme. Players could obtain it as a Horizon Wheelspin reward before the October 14, 2016 update, but had the chance of obtaining this car again in the Forzathon event Grand Touring held from November 3, 2017 to November 9, 2017. It will also be obtainable in a currently unnamed, upcoming event held from April 20, 2018 to April 27, 2018.

The Forza Edition is a Forza Motorsport 7 rendition of its equivalent from Forza Horizon 3 but featured with homologated performance, as well as a 15% credits bonus and an additional 15% credits bonus for races in Long Beach. It can be won upon unlocking the Breakout Championship.

Performance

Designed primarily as an agile sports car, players can easily perform quick cornering with the car but will experience light oversteer if pushed too hard. Its two-liter naturally aspirated F4 engine lacks torque and requires high rpms to unfold its power, recommending players to stay on the powerband whenever possible. While driving similarly to the GT86, the BRZ has a very slight braking disadvantage.

The Rocket Bunny upgrade preset in Forza Horizon 3 improves the performance index up to the maximum of Class S1 by fitting the car with a 2.6L twin turbo inline-6 engine from the Nissan Skyline GT-R V-Spec II and a Rocket Bunny body kit. The Rocket Bunny BRZ features 883 hp (658 kW) and 734 ft·lb (995 N·m) of torque, which vastly make the car more powerful but also significantly harder to control due to excessive wheelspin that can be experienced even on fourth gear. This wheelspin can, however, be taken advantage of for drifting. The Horizon Edition variant of the BRZ features these same performance traits albeit with a higher top speed, more efficient braking, sharper handling, and slightly slower acceleration, as well as the Toyota Supra RZ's 3.0L twin-turbocharged inline-6 engine with upgrades to the twin turbochargers and flywheel.

Trivia

  • The BRZ's in-game power output is shown as 200 hp (149 kW) due to a misconversion of its power rating of 197 hp (147 kW) to brake horsepower (hp) from metric horsepower (PS).
  • The BRZ received an openable hood/bonnet in Forza Motorsport 7.
