The first pictures of Subaru’s BRZ leaked out last night, prior to its official launch at the Tokyo Motor Show. The BRZ, nicknamed Subieyota, is the company’s first rear-wheel drive car and was developed together with Toyota’s GT 86 (a.k.a. Toyobaru) which was unveiled at the weekend.

Looking almost identical to its Toyota sibling, the BRZ lacks the visual drama of the BRZ STi concept, and is powered by the a 1,998cc “boxer” four-cylinder engine, presumably with same 197 bhp as the GT 86.

Further details will be released once the show gets underway, but we expect most of the differences between the two cars to be mainly aesthetic.
