No, it's not a BRZ STI, but the tS model does pack more performance still.

The suspension features Sachs dampers and uprated rated springs to reduce body roll.

Additional bracing can be found under the hood and under the car to stiffen the chassis.

Out back, a large carbon fiber rear wing provides additional downforce. The wing can be adjusted between two positions.

The interior of the BRZ tS adds more red to the equation with the black leather and Alcantara seats getting red bolsters and accent stitching.
