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 FIAs 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.

Mmm, 221kw possibly, pity it seems it will still only be CVT, I wonder if there is any chance Subaru Aus will consider a variation from that.....

how do you figure that?

 

From poking around.  $38k is base spec with nothing in it. 

 

drive-out ready to go NR4 package in the UK is 100k GBP with a 5-speed hewland dog box.
