Subaru Impreza WRX STI 206 Debuts

Subaru has the Subaru Impreza WRX STI S206, which is now on sale in Japan.

The Subaru Impreza WRX STI S206 is based on the Impreza WRX STI, but gets exclusive Bilstein shock absorbers, STI coil springs, and a flexible tower bar and draw stiffener up front that help improve its performance on the track. It also rides on Michelin Pilot Super Sport tired with BBS 19-inch aluminum wheels. Subaru has also optimized the weight balance between pistons, connecting rods and crankshaft to enhance the rev feel. A ball bearing turbocharger, ECU with STI tuning, and a sports muffler with lowered back pressure exhaust give the Impreza WRX STI S206 a total 316 horsepower and 318 lb-ft. of torque.

The Impreza WRX STI S206 stands out thanks to the lower front spoiler and front fender outlet grille that are specific to this model, and the trunk spoiler.
