Thumbs up Nurburgring Video of Subaru BRZ Coupe / Subaru FR-S / Toyota FT-86 Shows off Handling

Happy to share with our members the best video yet of the Subaru Coupe / Subaru FR-S / Toyota FT-86 getting flogged during testing on the Nurburgring.

The prototype seems to be exhibiting great handling - staying flat and showing little roll or slide through the turns. It's not easy to judge speed from a video, but it certainly seems to be carrying good speed through the turns.

We also get the best listen to the prototype at full throttle yet.

Be sure to watch in 1080p mode.

That's something you can't tell by an external video. You don't know the intended line the driver is meaning to take.

True but it looks to go very wide about :48 second mark. On the other hand the wear on the track makes me think that is just the best line.

might have been covered before, so apologies, but it's left hand drive? I thought the Japs would build it right handed first, for "their" specs.

Is that normal for that much positive camber on the front outside wheel under heavy cornering? But otherwise it's looking great.

I was getting dizzy from watching the stupid video.

Also, it makes me wonder how relevant the video is in terms of the final production version's handling is. For all we know, their engineers are only gathering data on how different combinations of suspension components will cause the car to perform. They could just as easily decide on a softer or firmer tuning in conjunction with marketing to come up with a package that will appeal to the widest group of potential customers. I'm pretty sure that for many of us, we'd fall outside of that category. But that's where the aftermarket will pick up from...

Love it. Can't wait until more vids are released but this should keep me entertained for a while I guess.
