No one likes a control freak. Unless, the control freak happens to be your car. Watch two racing pros take each other on in a Focus ST and a Subaru WRX, and see which car kills it in the corners and which one just can’t… get… it… done.
Ford Focus ST vs Volkswagen Golf R (or Subaru BRZ)! [Head 2 Head Episode 23]
On this episode of Head 2 Head, it’s the battle of the hot hatches as Carlos Lago pits the 2013 Ford Focus ST against a returning contender - the 2012 Volkswagen Golf R. Carlos hits the road and heads to the track but there is a slight problem with the Golf R and Carlos is forced to bring in the Subaru BRZ as a pinch hitter.
The rear-wheel drive coupe features a new range of Subaru Tecnica International (STI) performance parts and accessories, including spoilers and suspension upgrades, and which the company says will soon be available for order.
Below you will find a list with the components that will be offered to Australian owners of the BRZ:
Time for another round at the autobahn! The Subaru BRZ is a fantastic car and has been reviewed as one of the best and most fun to drive cars of the year.
Top Gear host Jeremy Clarkson recently drove the Toyota version and said - “…hand on heart, this was one of my favourite cars.
It’s not slow — it really isn’t — it’s just that you have to work to get performance from it, but is that a problem? It sounds sweet, is smooth and has the best throttle response of anything here, 911 included.”
The handling on the car is unreal as well which the whole Top Gear crew apparently had nothing but amazing things to say as well.
For anyone who doubts the Subaru and thinks it is a “slow” car this video should prove otherwise.
‘Glorious’ Subaru Impreza Helps ‘Gutless’ Ram Truck Towing a Motorhome get out of the Mud
While many will hold true – such as that the Impreza had better traction where it was standing – you cannot but praise the small Subaru for its ability to free a full size truck towing an even larger and heavier load.
At the end of May I got a call from the Subaru dealership telling me my 2013 BRZ Limited had arrived and was ready for me to take delivery. After a grueling 1,000 mile break-in period I was looking forward to see what the car was capable of.
I shipped the car to the Autobahn to do some high speed runs in the car and attempt the top speed.
The car is limited by its aerodynamics unfortunately so I had to get a good stretch which favored the car which allowed me to get up to 147 MPH.
This isn’t very high speed compared to other exotic cars but for a 200HP Subaru I was very impressed seeing what it’s capable of on the top speed spectrum!
For those of you who don’t know this is a rear wheel drive Subaru and the car is fantastic to drive along with drifting ;)

Drag Race: 2013 Subaru BRZ Vs 1999 Honda S2000 [Motorsport]
La concurrence du nouveau BRZ?
La Toyota GT86, bien sûr, sa jumelle, la Mazda MX-5, la Peugeot RCZ bien qu’elle soit une traction, mais c’est surtout à la Honda S2000, malheureusement retirée du catalogue, que l’on pense en voyant une petite japonaise propulsion animée par un quatre cylindres atmo.
