For Sale: Subaru BRZ ‘Albino Rhino’ is Affordable Eye Candy
Many have hailed the Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S as two of the best-handling and most enjoyable sports cars on the market. But in terms of power, well, they won’t exactly rock you like a C7. That is unless you buy this one. Utah’s RallySport Direct has decided to sell-off its prized 2013 Subaru BRZ promotional car, dubbed the ‘Albino Rhino.’ According to RallySport’s listing on the FT86club forum, the car was purchased new and has been used to promote the website at events across the country, now showing only 6,273 miles on the odometer. Oh yeah, they’ve also sunk in over $36,000 into the extensive build.
The Albino Rhino sources additional power from a Vortech supercharger, which has been mildly tuned to output 229-horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque to the rear wheels, although we suspect it wouldn’t be hard to yoke more power from that setup.

All four corners of the BRZ sport upgraded Tein Street Flex Coilovers, paired with four sets of extra-grippy Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 tires and massive Brembo GT brakes (six-piston up front, four-piston in back), which should keep the car well planted and under control. The Work CR Kai wheels on this subbie cost nearly $3,000 alone.

Inside, RallySport has opted for a pair of Cusco Bride Stradia II seats complemented by Takata racing harnesses. It’s safe to say that you’re not slipping out of there.
There’s dozens more goodies and specs to read about on the BRZ’s listing, along with a comprehensive build thread. The price for all of that performance? $45,000 – not a bad deal considering they did all the hard work for you.
