On this episode of Epic Drives, Motor Trend’s Nate Martinez conquers Japan’s most beautiful, and challenging, driving roads behind the wheel of a 2013 Subaru BRZ.
Martinez’s journey across Japan would take him through Tokyo, to Subaru’s Gunma factory, where the BRZ and its Scion FR-S twin are produced. On the way, Martinez takes the BRZ on all of Japan’s most legendary driving roads, including the twisting ribbons of asphalt on the Nihon Romantic Highway. Martinez also gets the chance to climb Mount Fuji, and tear up the famed Toyo Tires Turnpike.
After a stop at the BRZ’s factory, Martinez hits up the twisty Gunma Cycle Sports Center, the very track where the BRZ’s driving dynamics were honed to perfection. Check out the latest episode of Epic Drives for yourself below.
