Subaru WRX S4 tS launched as limited edition in Japan

A serious performance beast By ,

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.
