The Subaru/Toyota mash up has finally come to a head as both Subaru's BRZ and Toyota's GT 86 were finally revealed at the Tokyo Motor Show. Years of speculation, guess work and overuse of the phrase 'Toyobaru' have ended with mixed reactions across the media.

Subaru's effort, the BRZ, is a departure for the firm – it's a RWD naturally aspirated sports car; pretty far off the stereotypical Scoobies of old. It boasts a 197bhp, 151 lb ft 2.0-litre four-cylinder boxer engine and a 0-62mph time of around seven seconds. It won't blow your face off in the 'normal' way, but Subaru hopes that its 'fun' set up will appeal to buyers.
