Accelerated Performance Subaru BRZ runs the quarter-mile in 11.3 seconds [video]

Produces 440 hp (328 kW / 446 PS) at the rear wheels.

An Accelerated Performance Subaru BRZ has run the quarter-mile in less than 12 seconds.

During testing at the Milan Dragway, the company was able to get the car to post an impressive time of 11.3 seconds at 127 mph (204 km/h).

To get these figures, the 2.0-liter boxer engine was equipped with a turbocharger, an AEM Tru Boost Controller and a high-performance exhaust system. There's also an upgraded fuel pump, new injectors, an Exedy clutch and a reprogrammed ECU. Thanks to these modifications, the car produces 440 hp (328 kW / 446 PS) and 340 lb-ft (460 Nm) of torque - at the rear wheels.

Thanks for the tip Tom!

Once again, the SRA is not used for performance but rather a cheap cost-savings device.

Seriously considering this car... However, I'm still sitting on the fence between the BRZ and the Megane RS. Yes yes, I know the RS is faster, but there is just something about the driver appeal of this RWD car.. Tough choice.

I'd choose the BRZ. But no the whole, I've gone from being enthusiastic about this car to being totally indifferent. Don't know exactly why but I think it's the engine. Shame really.

Understandable. It's not the obvious choice as there are many hot hatches that are faster for the same money and have better interiors and also great hamdling (esp. the RS). However, after watching many many reviews of the BRZ/gt86 its has been nothing but praised by the world. Very interesting.

CAUTION RANDOM ANSWER: We use 1000 horsepower BRZs in construction. They are not Subarus though, they are industrial equipment controllers ;)
