Subaru has announced the pricing for the very limited 2019 STI S209, which is priced at $64,880, including the destination fees.
The 2019 Subaru STI S209 takes inspiration from the WRX STI Nürburgring Challenge racecar. It features an expanded wide-body exterior treatment, which extends the width to 72.4 inches, 1.7 inches wider than a standard WRX STI. The enlarged fenders feature wider front/rear tracks (+ 0.6 in front/rear) and 265/35 Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT 600A summer-only tires wrapped around 19 x 9-inch forged BBS alloy wheels. Vents on the front fenders provide additional engine cooling, while vents on the rear fenders rectify air turbulence to reduce drag and increase downforce.
Brembo brakes with 6-piston monoblock front calipers and 2-piston monoblock rear calipers that feature cross-drilled steel rotors and upgraded high-friction pads have also been added to keep everything under control. Other upgrades, include Bilstein dampers, stiffened coil springs, a 20mm rear stabilizer bar and pillow-type bushings for the front/rear lateral links. On the outside front, rear and side under spoilers, front bumper canards, and a carbon-fiber roof panel and rear wing have been added.
Under the hood, there’s a upgraded version of the 2.5-liter turbocharged boxer engine with 341 horsepower and 330 lb.-ft. of torque, that’s mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and the full-time Subaru Symmetrical all-wheel drive system.
Only 209 units of the 2019 STI S209 will be built for the U.S. Buyers can choose either WR Blue Pearl with matte gray wheels or Crystal White Pearl with matte gold wheels.
