SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI SPEC C now ready for us to enjoy
This will be Subaru’s best handling product to date. Don’t expect Motor Image to bring in this car, so look out for a few select parallel importers to bring in it by the 4th quarter of 2011 for enthusiasts’ with money. Based on the Impreza WRX STI, the iconic sport model of Subaru, the WRX STI spec C model features enhanced engine and chassis performance as well as a lighter body on the premise of driving in motor sports. The model further strengthens its presence in the high performance car arena by offering sheer excitement and unique driving sensations as a distinctive sport model, in line with the performance level originally delivered by the Impreza WRX STI.
The twin scroll turbocharger newly adopted ball bearings for the turbine axle bearing, and the ECU (Engine Control Unit) program was also exclusively tuned. Thus the engine of the spec C model increases the maximum torque, and provides quicker response and improved accelerating performance.
The adoption of an aluminum engine hood, laminar window glasses and a downsized battery resulted in a lighter body, which further refines the model’s driving performance. Thanks to its specially tuned front & rear suspensions, the chassis offers stable and linear driving control even in marginal driving conditions.
