In 2012 Subaru and Toyota collaborated on a new project, a small, sporty rear wheel drive car. For Subaru to depart from their all-wheel drive vehicle lineup was somewhat shocking, but the end result was well received. Known as the BRZ (and Scion FR-S in the US, Toyota 86 in Japan and GT 86 in the UK and possibly the EU) the little car offers a 2.0 liter flat four cylinder engine that delivers 200 hp. The center of gravity is 18 inches high and the vehicle mass is very evenly distributed. With a zero to sixty speed of just over 6 seconds, it isn't a rocket, but both test drivers and consumers have reported that it is a very fun, sporty ride.

Aoshima has produced a model kit representing the Subaru BRZ, 2012 model year that should appeal to sports car enthusiasts. New in this kit is the complete engine. The kit comes in a medium sized, top opening box with the subject vehicle depicted on the box top. A photograph of the FA20 type engine is included, as well as an indicator that left hand drive (LHD) parts are included in the kit. Inside the box the sprues are separately bagged for parts protection. The kit includes painting masks for the clear parts and a full decal sheet, although these are packaged with the clear parts. Parts are molded in white (primarily body parts), black (chassis, engine and interior), clear and fortunately a small amount of chrome-bright for the head and tail light assembly and brushed for the alloy rims. I did not see any flash, broken parts or molding issues
