While we are all anxiously awaiting the debut of the next generation Subaru WRX, Subaru is continuing to improve the current model with the release of a new special edition model for the Japanese market. Known as the WRX STI tS Type RA, the new version has just become available to order at Subaru dealers in Japan.
The primary goal for the new model is to improve its dynamic capabilities by adding a number of changes to the STI’s chassis and suspension.
Among the tweaks to the car are a quicker steering rack with an 11:1 ratio…
… and a new set of Brembo monoblock brakes up front with six-pot calipers and grooved rotors.
The STI tS Type RA also gets a completely tweaked suspension with tuned dampers and coil springs, new arms and a flexible tower bar up front.
Additionally there will also be an NBR Challenge version of the car that will include additional improvements, including a pair of special Recaro seats…
… and a set of 18″x8.5 forged BBS wheels coated in black.
Those who want one of these ultimate STIs will have to act quickly as production will be limited to just 300 units total, with sales to stop before the end of the year.
