Stanced 2022 Subaru BRZ Looks Clean, New Chassis Now Has Air Suspension

Build your 2022 BRZ, says the Subaru official configurator. So a shop over in the Land of the Rising Sun took the offer, bringing us what is probably the first stanced example of the second-gen BRZ.

We’ve just come across the road-hugging sportscars, but it’s worth noting that Moontech, the developer behind the project, seems to have completed the machine in early September.

This is a demo vehicle for the shop, which means they put some serious work into the second-gen Toyobaru. Speaking of which, the chassis of the newcomer might be an evolution of the original rather than an all-new platform, but, in its effort to gift the fresh arrival with air suspension, the aftermarket developer needed to rework many components (e.g., the front knuckle and the Megan Racing-supplied rear arms).

The air hardware comes from Ploom Suspension, another Japanese specialist, while the controller was supplied by American label Air Lift Performance.

Dem Wheels

Then we have those 18-inch wheels, whose generous lips barely clear the arches when the suspension uses its lowest setting. These three-piece units come from JDM Concept, using the GT5 label, while they’re wrapped in Toyo Proxes tires coming in a 225/35 R18 size. For the sake of comparison, we’ll mention that the most generous wheel/tire combo you can get on the factory model involves 18-inch units shod in 215/40 rubber.

This particular build also comes with custom stopping hardware that includes Brembo calipers.

Given how people are obsessing over the black arches of the 2022 Subaru WRX these days (here’s a virtual “design fix” for the performance sedan), we have to point out just how clean this BRZ looks.

And while it’s clear that stancing a vehicle, particularly a driver’s car like this Scooby isn’t for everybody, it’s thrilling to see the second iteration of the sportscar carrying on the legacy of the original BRZ.

Oh, and much to nobody’s surprise, the developer states that it can install similar goodies on the 2022 Toyota GR86 (we’ve already discussed mods with a more significant impact on its look).
