Though the 2013 Subaru BRZ is expected to be a driver's car and a relative success, it's not exactly clear who its clear-cut competition will be.
Except the Scion FR-S, of course.
A rear-wheel drive entry-level coupe just isn't what you find around these days, unless you look towards muscle cars. Muscle like the 2013 Ford Mustang V6.
That's pretty heavy competition, particularly now that the Mustang V6 has upped its power to the 300 horsepower mark.
So, just how does it fair out against the likes of a bigger and more powerful rear-wheel drive coupe? Feast you eyes down below...
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Angus MacKenzie pits the 2013 Subaru BRZ against its American rival - the 2013 Ford Mustang V6. After carving up canyon roads in both cars, Angus hands the keys over to pro race driver Randy Pobst for limit testing and hot laps around Streets of Willow racetrack. Find out which front engine, rear-wheel drive coupe reigns supreme!
CORRECTION - On the spec chart, the BRZ engine should be listed as simply a Flat-4. It is definitely not turbocharged!
