Limited to only 1,000 cars

Subaru has released the special edition 2015 BRZ Series.Blue limited to only 1,000 cars exclusively for the United States. The automaker says the BRZ Series.Blue combines STI functional aerodynamic body design with black-painted 17-inch wheels and unique interior trims.

Subaru USA will offer 500 painted WR Blue Pearl and 500 in Crystal Pearl. The limited-run model will arrive in dealerships in July.

The BRZ Series.Blue features black STI-branded front, side and side-rear under spoilers, which Subaru says, contribute to additional front downforce and underbody panels that reduce the coefficient drag from 0.28 to 0.27.

It also has red-painted brake callipers that can be seen behind the spokes of the STI black alloy wheels.

Inside, the BRZ Series.Blue has Alcantara upholstery that includes black leather seat bolsters and head restraints.

Blue stitching accents the seats and has a blue and black leather-wrapped steering wheel. The shift lever boot and the parking brake handle are also wrapped in blue and black leather.

Frameless day/night rear-view mirror

Adding finishing touches to the interior, the BRZ Series.Blue has a frameless day/night rear-view mirror, faux carbon fiber center dash panel and a start/stop button with an STI logo.

It is powered by a 2.0-liter Boxer engine that delivers 203 PS mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

The automaker says the 2015 BRZ Series.Blue 6MT variant is priced at USD 29,490 (about PHP 1.3 million).
