Subaru BRZ in “Fast and the Furious 6″ – Ruge’s Subaru

The 2013 Subaru BRZ was an unexpected star in Motor Trend’s World’s Greatest Drag Race 2 (shown below), and we’ve now heard that the rear-drive sports car will be featured in the latest Fast and the Furious movie. Subaru has reportedly supplied the “Fast and the Furious 6″ crew with as many as five BRZs, and we’d be surprised if at least one of those doesn’t end up dressed in Fast and Furious garb including a full body kit, upgraded wheels, and a lowered suspension. Or smashed up. Or both.

Of course, the main changes we look forward to experiencing are under the hood. Though the stock 2013 BRZ makes 200 hp and 151 lb-ft from a 2.0-liter flat 4, a turbocharger or a supercharger would no doubt quicken the car’s as-tested 0-60 mph time of 6.4 seconds with a six-speed manual transmission.

Additionally, the buzz around the Hollywood water cooler is that Fast Six cars like the BRZ might be driven by actors including longtime series stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson (who appeared in the last sequel) in the latest FF movie. Jason Statham, who previously starred in “The Transporter” movies driving large Audisedans, may even have a cameo role.

For some Motor Trend fans, though, the real stars of the next Fast and the Furious movie will be the cars. Along with the Subaru BRZ, we’re likely to see plenty of hot sheetmetal to keep us interested. About last year’s flick, actor Tyrese Gibson told us he liked the Dodge Charger police vehicles so much he was thinking about buying a Charger.

“Fast and the Furious 6″ is expected to be released on May 24, 2013.
