Subaru WRX STI tS Type RA

This is very probably a last stab at the current-gen Subaru WRX, before the new one burbles its way in. Called (in true special-edition-Scooby-long-name fashion) the Subaru WRX STI tS Type RA, this one has been announced for its home market.

On the outside, the Subaru WRX STI tS Type RA sports gloss black accents, door mirrors incorporating LED indicators and a front splitter, while bucket seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearknob grace the interior.

Underneath sits a sporty suspension setup that boasts STI-tuned springs, dampers and struts. There are gold-painted Brembo brakes, a flexible front tower brace and a quicker 11:1 steering ratio, amongst others.

Available is the NBR Challenge Package (the initials referring to a certain German racetrack), which gives you Recaro seats, an adjustable carbon fibre rear spoiler and 18-inch forged aluminium wheels wrapped in 245/40 series rubber.

Tangerine Orange Pearl, Satin White Pearl and Blue Mica make up the list of exclusively available body hues. Only 300 units will exist; 200 of which will be equipped with the NBR Challenge Package.
