Είναι διαθέσιμο σε τέσσερα χρώματα, Yellow Edition, Crystal Black Silica, WR Blue Pearl και Crystal White Pearl, με τα 100 αυτοκίνητα να βγαίνουν στο χρώμα Yellow Edition, ενώ μόλις τα 200 θα εξοπλιστούν με το πακέτο Nürburgring Challenge Package.

Στο περίπτερο της Subaru βρίσκεται επίσης και το WRX S4 SporVita. Η συγκεκριμένη πολυτελής έκδοση του Subaru WRX S4 “εκφράζει τον τρόπο που συνδυάζονται οι επιδόσεις ενός Subaru με το ποιοτικό εσωτερικό για να βελτιώσουν τη ζωή των οδηγών”. Το εσωτερικό είναι ντυμένο με αυθεντικό δέρμα από τον γνωστό Ιταλό κατασκευαστή Mario Levi. Αυτή είναι η πρώτη φορά που Ιάπωνας κατασκευαστής χρησιμοποιεί προϊόντα της συγκεκριμένης Ιταλικής εταιρίας. Οι δίχρωμες δερμάτινες επενδύσεις καλύπτουν εκτός από τα καθίσματα, τις πόρτες, το τιμόνι και τον λεβιέ ταχυτήτων ενώ νέα διακοσμητικά και ένας νέος πίνακας οργάνων ενισχύουν την αίσθηση της πολυτέλειας στην καμπίνα των επιβατών.

Όσον αφορά στις επιδόσεις –γιατί ας μην ξεχνάμε πως μιλάμε για το Subaru WRX S4-, το αυτοκίνητο κινείται από έναν δίλιτρο, υπερτροφοδοτούμενο βενζινοκινητήρα που αποδίδει 300 άλογα στις 5.600 σ.α.λ. και 400 Nm ροπής από τις 2.000 έως τις 4.800 σ.α.λ. Το μοντέλο “πατάει” σε ζάντες ελαφρού κράματος 18 ιντσών με ελαστικά 245/40 και έχει στον standard εξοπλισμό τόσο το Advanced Safety Package όσο και το Eyesight σύστημα.

STI Releases “S207” Limited-Edition “WRX STI” in Japan

Tokyo, October 28, 2015 – Subaru Tecnica International (STI),*1 the motorsports division of Fuji Heavy Industries, will launch a limited-edition model based on the “WRX STI” on December 1, 2015. Just 400 units of the model, dubbed the “S207”, will be available.
