An unusual event took place in Japan, during which invited guests were given the opportunity to understand the differences between Toyota GR86 and Subaru BRZ, which is called “one car for two companies.” As an example, marketers used a dish called “curry”, which in practice showed the difference between the “twins.” The organizers compared the taste sensations with the characteristics of sports cars.
Japanese “curry” is one of the main dietary national dishes that can be found in almost any cafe or canteen. In fact, it is rice with vegetables or chicken with the addition of a special sauce. Using a traditional dish, Toyota and Subaru marketers decided to showcase the differences between their sports cars. To do this, as part of a specially organized event, guests were served “curry” on a red and blue tray with a picture of cars. During the tasting, visitors concluded that half of the GR86 dish was spicy, while the BRZ curry was sweeter and richer.
The organizers of the event compared the taste sensations with the characteristics of sports cars. The specialists noted that the GR86 suspension is equipped with cast iron steering knuckles to connect the struts to the front wheel hubs, while the BRZ uses aluminum ones. In addition, cars have different damper settings.
In practice, these differences allow Toyota drivers to achieve smoother steering, while Subaru owners get better cornering stability.
In September last year, an American blogger posted a video in which he cooked eggs in a 717-horsepower Dodge HEMI V8. The enthusiast needed to maintain about 4000 rpm for 10 minutes.
