Μπορεί να μην έχει παρουσιαστεί ακόμα επίσημα η πολιτική έκδοση του 2015 Subaru WRX STI αλλά η Ιαπωνική εταιρία μας δείχνει το πώς θα είναι η αγωνιστική.

Αυτό λοιπόν, είναι το 2015 WRX STI που θα συμμετέχει στις 24 ώρες του Nurburgring στα μέσα Ιουνίου. Θα είναι η 7η συνεχόμενη χρονιά που η Subaru Tecnica International θα συμμετέχει στον βάναυσο 24ωρο αγώνα και με το ολοκαίνουριο αγωνιστικό της, στοχεύει στην τρίτη νίκη της στην SP3T κατηγορία.

Οι Ιάπωνες δεν έδωσαν καμία επιπλέον πληροφορία για το αγωνιστικό WRX STI ωστόσο επειδή αγωνίζεται στην SP3T κατηγορία, είναι ασφαλές να υποθέσουμε πως κάτω από καπό βρίσκεται ο δίλιτρος υπερτροφοδοτούμενος boxer και όχι τίποτε άλλο.
