1st Subaru BRZ commercial in Japan… and lots of website action
Availability of the new Subaru BRZ and Toyota 86 in Japan has just begun, and with them the first television commercials. Here Subaru gives us a peek at their values and at the heritage of the new BRZ:
Be sure to explore the new BRZ sites in Japan (in Japanese only):
- special introduction site: http://subaru-brz.jp/pc/
- Subaru ordering site: http://www.subaru.jp/brz/brz/
These sites are a bit slow across international lines, but are also an important read for anyone interested in this great new enthusiast car. The introduction site is full of photos and articles, including insider looks at the prototypes, interviews with the engineers, soundtracks, and even some hidden wallpaper to download for your PC.
You’ll also find some of the videos from these sites as well as Press videos on the Subaru Global Site on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/SubaruGlobalTV and SubaruOnTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/SUBARUOnTube. Here is the first driving impression from the Subaru BRZ special site:
Have you been putting off taking those Japanese language courses? Like any enthusiast of JDM performance cars, you’ll wish you’d started them years ago. We learned that lesson the hard way 16 years ago when we came across a Best Motoring video featuring a competitive face-off of GT-R and Supra TT JDM tuners. It was our first exposure to the JDM performance community and was just the start of our current library of hundreds of JDM enthusiast videos, books, and dealer brochures as well as ownership of just a tiny sample of the incredible range of Japanese enthusiast cars. Whether we’re bouncing off the 9300 RPM fuel cut-off of our S2000 or unleashing the full boost of our supercharged G37 (aka JDM Skyline), we continue to enjoy JDM performance.
Now, Subaru and Toyota, when can we get our hands on a Toyota 86 and Subaru BRZ for a first drive?
