The Subaru WRX STI S207 has been announced at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, limited to just 400 units for the Japanese market.

The Japanese automaker is making a bold claim with the limited edition WRX STI, saying that it aims to be the “world’s most enjoyable vehicle.” Although that will surely be debatable, the WRX STI will a range-topping model packing 324 horsepower, up from the standard 305-hp figure. Handling has been enhanced with a quick steering ratio of 11:1 while other suspension upgrades include an STI flexible tower bar, DampMatic II front suspension with adjustable damping and front-rear Active Torque Vectoring. Braking performance has been overhauled with a set of Brembo six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers in the rear with drilled rotors.

    must be a typo. They meant to say, “still the world’s most boring vehicle.”

  • Shiratori1

    Troll harder…..

  • Ken

    And of course this only applies to the Japanese market as usual.

  • VoiceOfReason

    Do you _really_ have to get one with that juvenile, assinine rear spoiler? I consider it an extra worth paying to have removed. Strictly for the adolescent driver.

  • Julian

    I think it’s only the NBR version that has that wing. The fourth picture shows a blue STi with no wing.

  • alandee

    Just wish they would come out with a rally pack ..

  • mrcultureshock

    Subaru’s biggest market is in North America yet they release this new WRX STI in Japan only. Doesn’t make any sense.

    Not boring but ugly…

  • Dllemm

    It’s a limited run by a Japanese company. Do you think the rest of the world gets the 50 flavors of Mustangs we are blessed with?

  • And YOU, are the world’s most boring BULLSHIT!

  • and you are a bullshit!

  • and you are a bullshit!!~

  • timothyhood

    But the rest of the world isn’t the Mustang’s biggest market. In fact, until the current model, you couldn’t even buy a factory-supported Mustang. I agree with mrcultureshock. Short of producing a version that wouldn’t sell well (like a station wagon), or simply couldn’t meet U.S. specs, other brands, particularly the European makes, send their special editions to the U.S.

    I sense a theme with your posts. I believe a new word was recently added to your vocabulary. 🙂

  • Sarah_Gomez

    They should just base it on market share. If US has 80% sales, they get 320 of them.

  • Macz

    Oh WoW, 324 H.P.! I am going to run and sign up!…NOT! Still too slowwwwwww….

  • Huck L Barry

    it’s not all about top speed bro

  • Kaahk

    Haha ya that Richard guy always says the same thing everywhere he trolls 🙂

  • mrcultureshock

    I don’t see any difficulty for Subaru to ship some of these special STI’s to US. It’s the best away to thank their biggest market and its loyal fans.

  • Chris

    um did you see the isle of man video you fucking retard

  • chuckdaly

    “Enjoyable”? Sure, when they change the interior, to keep it from squeaking and rattling after its been driven beyond 20K miles. If you own a WRX, you know what I’m talking about.

  • B Brad

    It can only be enjoyed if it’s practical enough to buy. Bring back the hatch!
