Subaru Offers Exclusive Motorsport WRX STIs in Australia
In respons to demand from enthusiasts and professional teams, Subaru Australia is importing a limited number of WRX STI motorsport cars. The four-door 2.0-litre turbocharged cars come from a winning pedigree in rally and tarmac events worldwide.
Dubbed WRX STI NR4 Spec, the cars are FIA-homologated and are eligible for FIA WRC2, ERC2 regional and progressive national championships, as they meet the FIA’s new NR4 regulations, which replace the previous N4 and R4 classes.
The base car is priced from A$38,000, including GST, ex Port Kembla. Additionally long-term motorsport partner Possum Bourne Motor Sport is developing a range of packages for these vehicles which will suit everyone from club amateur to the professional.
The 2.0-litre turbocharged engine is only available locally in this motorsport model. The WRX STI NR4 Specs are available for motorsport use-only and cannot be road registered – buyers need to fit an FIA-approved roll cage, which can be ordered at the time of purchase for fitting pre-delivery. Two colours – white and WR Blue are available.
