Subaru WRX S4 tS launched as limited edition in Japan

While it’s another sports car we can’t have in North America, the new Subaru WRX S4 tS still deserves your enthusiastic attention.

This limited-edition model will be on sale exclusively in Japan starting today through March 12th, 2017.

Blessed with EyeSight driver assist technology, a 10% increase in engine torque during acceleration, and extra STI components for even better handling (including a flexible tower bar, DampMatic II front suspension with adjustable damping, and front-rear Active Torque Vectoring), the Subaru WRX S4 tS is a serious performance beast. Braking has also been enhanced with 4-piston Brembo brakes in front.

As for styling, the new model gets STI-designed BBS 19” forged aluminum wheels, a cherry red pinstripe on the mesh-type front grille and rear bumper, and a large front under-spoiler. Available body colours include WR Blue Pearl, Crystal White Pearl, Ice Silver Metallic, and Crystal Black Silica. The interior features STI-spec Recaro front bucket seats and a unique luminescent speedometer.

An “NBR Challenge Package” is offered, as well, commemorating Subaru’s victory at the 24 Hours of Nürburgring (SP3T class) in each of the past two seasons.
