VIDEO: 2013 Subaru BRZ at Detroit Auto Show

The Subaru BRZ has quickly become a legend in the automotive world despite the fact that only a handful of people have driven it. The ramp-up to the official launch of the car at this past year's Tokyo Auto Show has made it the most anticipated performance car of 2012.

The ingredients speak for themselves. The 2013 Subaru BRZ is rear-wheel-drive, has a high-strung 2.0L 4-pot good for 200 ponies and a 6-speed manual gearbox. The BRZ is as fast as it looks, capable of reaching 100 km/h in about 6 seconds. The cockpit is designed for a driver and a navigator and refinement is kept to a minimum. Sounds perfect.
