The Tokyo Auto Salon is one of the largest car shows for Japanese brands. Both aftermarket and OEM suppliers go all out for the Salon every year, and Subaru is no exception. This year, Subaru unveiled the 2015 Subaru BRZ GT300 race car, which will compete in Japan’s Super GT series.

The BRZ GT300 race car is barely recognizable as a BRZ. It’s wide (it makes the Rocket Bunny kit look like a Tango), it’s low and it has a massive spoiler on the back. Still, it’s a lot better than the NASCAR bodies that are essentially all the same with different headlights and grills painted on. At least the BRZ GT300 looks like it started out life as a BRZ.

Subaru also debuted their WRX STI based race car that will be competing in the Nurburgring 24 Hour race with grill mounted lights that make the front of the car look like a Mustang (head over to Autoblog to see the monstrosity and then try to tell me you don’t see the stang in it).

Subaru will use the same Dunlop tires on the BRZ GT300 and the Nurburgring 24 Hours STI.
