Subaru offers exclusive motorsport WRX STIS

Subaru Exclusive Motorsport WRX & STI

In response 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 $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.

Subaru Australia Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “Current production WRX and WRX STI have taken interest in these turbocharged legends back to the peak levels we saw in the late 1990s, and with that has come a whole new wave of interest in using them for motorsport activities.

“These cars represent fantastic value for motorsport enthusiasts that want the amazing All-Wheel Drive advantage that has made WRX such a legend over the past 20 plus years.”

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.
