Current and prospective Subaru BRZ customers can now improve the dynamic performance of their vehicles via a sports pack priced at $7195 for automatic and $7995 for manual models.

The above prices include labour costs of fitting the new parts to the car, which comprise several aero and chassis updates which "changes the car's name to BRZ S" says Subaru.

While no powertrain tweaks are available, the sports pack adds the following items:

•    Front under spoiler
•    Side under spoiler
•    Rear side under spoiler
•    Boot lip spoiler (crystal black mica)
•    Flexible tower bar
•    Lowered coil spring set
•    17-inch black STI alloy wheel
•    Gear shift lever assembly (manual-only)
•    Duracon shift knob (manual-only)
•    Engine push-button start switch
•    Rear under diffuser

The extra spoilers and rear diffuser are designed to improve aerodynamic stability at speed, while the performance gains from the flexible tower bar and lowered coil-spring suspension will be manifest in terms of handling dynamics.

All of the new BRZ S parts are manufactured by Subaru Tecnica International (STI).

Current owners who retrofit the package to their BRZs at authorised Subaru dealers get the "peace-of-mind" of a two-year factory warranty on all items. New customers who order the BRZ online and request the sports pack to be fitted before vehicle delivery benefit from the same three-year/unlimited kilometre warranty that covers the car.

"All indications are that many BRZ buyers want to add some performance touches to their cars and choosing Subaru-backed equipment offers great design, quality and peace-of-mind that isn’t necessarily guaranteed by after-market suppliers," said Nick Senior, Managing Director, Subaru Australia.

The kit is available at
BuyBRZonline.subaru.com.au/ and is similar to the 'Sport Kit' equipped BRZ car seen at the 2012 Sydney motor show. Subaru told motoring.com.au that the kit will be an "ongoing option, limited purely by parts supply".
