As summer arrives and the temperature continues to rise, Subaru is giving driving enthusiasts a unique way to stay cool on the road with a new special edition of its popular rear-wheel-drive sports car. With just 1,000 units of the model going on sale in July, the 2015 Subaru BRZ Series.Blue will feature a number of exclusive style touches while incorporating STI performance upgrades.
Outside, the BRZ Series:Blue will be available with a WR Blue Pearl or Crystal White Pearl paintjob, while an STI aerodynamics package consisting of black front, side and side-rear under-spoilers, and underbody panels will increase front downforce and reduce drag. Unique red-painted brake calipers and black-finished 17-inch STI wheels will further differentiate the special-edition sports car. Inside the cabin, drivers will find several blue accents, including blue leather seat bolsters and head restraints, extensive use of blue stitching, and a blue and black leather-wrapped steering wheel.
“The affordable BRZ has opened up world-class handling to a much broader group of driving enthusiasts, but the Series.Blue model will allow buyers to stand out from fellow BRZ owners while enjoying a little boost in performance as well,” said Wade Sterry, director of operations for Russel Subaru, a Baltimore Subaru dealership. “No matter which BRZ model you choose, though, you’re getting a sports car that performs well above its price tag.”
The Subaru BRZ’s wallet-friendly performance continues to drive sales at U.S. dealerships, with the vehicle moving 852 units in May for a 25 percent increase compared to the same month last year. That strong showing helped the overall Subaru brand reach a record May tally, as its sales jumped by 11 percent year-over-year to a total of 44,170 units. Other top performers for the lineup in May were the Subaru Forester compact SUV and the rally-inspired Subaru WRX, which each saw their best-ever monthly sales.
