The Japanese people from Subaru introduced the Impreza WRX STI S206, the crown of STI tuned cars, as the manufacturer claims. The new S206 model will be built in a limited edition of 300 units and is meant to continue the tradition started by the S203, S204 and S205 models.
“Based on the 4-door SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI, S206 is the newest model in STI’s “S” series. This series dons the crown of STI tuned cars with advanced driving performance and exclusively-made items in both interior and exterior designs. As with former STI models such as S204 and R205, S206 is founded on the IMPREZA WRX STI line,” adds Subaru.
Under the bonnet, the sports model gets a revised 2.0-liter engine able to deliver 320 horsepower and 431 Nm of torque. Among the improvements brought by the Subaru engineers we can note the retuned ECU unit, a sport exhaust system and a new twin-scroll turbocharger.
On the other hand, the appearance is improved thanks to a new aerodynamic kit which includes a new grille, new front and rear spoilers, side sills but also Recaro seats and leather steering wheel inside.
