Spanish Subaru Fans Have Eight Last Chances To Buy An STI And They Are Special
This year, Subaru is ending production of the current generation Impreza which means the WRX STI will also be leaving for a bit. However, to give it a proper send off, many countries are receiving special edition versions of the rallying legend. The latest one of these comes from Spain.
Dubbed the “Final Edition”, this special version of the STI by Subaru Spain comes as standard with all the modern gizmos such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation, a great 440 watts, 9-speaker Harman Kardon sound system and automatic headlights and wipers.
Don’t fear though, the car keeps the traditional 6-speed manual gearbox and 4-wheel drive. Six of the eight special editions feature the beautiful WR Blue Pearl paint whilst the remaining 2 will be painted in Crystal Black Silica. As an extra touch of nostalgia, all eight will be running on 19-inch gold coloured wheels arking back to the companies WRC days.
The exterior gets en aggressive upgrade from the original Impreza WRX STI with an extended front splitter, red trim around the grille and chrome exhaust tips. While the interior also goes sporty with Alcantara draped over the steering wheel and seats along with a red Start button. In order to make sure the owner remembers they are the owner of such a rare car, a limited-edition plaque will be installed on the centre console and the car number will be added to the keychain.
Unfortunately, nothing has been said about the engine or performance of the car so we can only assume the modifications are just cosmetic. This would mean the 2.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine keeps its 296 hp and 407 Nm of torque. Although, we would love to have seen a performance increase similar to America’s special edition, the S209.
Pre-orders for the Spanish take on a limited run STI have already opened meaning you should probably hurry up if you want one. And what’s the price for all this? Well, that would be €57,500. That’s over €8,000 more than the normal version for what is essentially a body-kit and a numbered plaque.
