2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Special Edition
Beside the WRX Special Edition, SUBARU of America, Inc. also revealed the new 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Special Edition at the 2012 SEMA Show. The new models are in keeping with a long tradition of customized Subaru SEMA show cars – and just in time for Halloween. The Subaru Special Edition WRX and WRX STI models feature an “Orange and Black” custom paint scheme, with Tangerine Orange paint off-set with jet black custom wheels, black front fender badging and exterior mirrors. The Special Editions cars also receive black exterior graphics.
Only 200 WRX sedans and 100 WRX STI sedans will be produced as limited edition. For a true custom look, the WRX Special Edition features the dark interior trim from the WRX STI, including a black headliner. The Special Edition orange interior is also applied to the stitching on the seats, doors and shift boot, and custom orange trimmed floor mats. The WRX STI also features front fog lamps.
The WRX STI Special Editions spice-up an already potent line up of AWD sports cars. Featuring Subaru BOXER engines, the WRX and WRX STI models develop 265 horsepower and 305 horsepower respectively. Delivering massive bang for the buck, the 2013 WRX Special Edition produces 244 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,000 rpm and running through its standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The Special Edition WRX STI delivers a rally-inspired driving experience with its 305 horsepower turbocharged BOXER engine, six-speed manual transmission and exclusive Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) version of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The 2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STI is also equipped with Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) and a Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system, the latter featuring a track performance-optimized mode.
2013 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Special Edition will go on sale in spring of 2013. Price will be announced closer to its on sale date.
