    Just 209 are coming to the U.S.
    If you’re hoping to be one of the 209 Americans to get the 2019 Subaru WRX STi S209 then prepare to pay $64,880 (including the $885 destination fee) for the privilege of driving the hottest WRX to ever arrive in the United States. It’s quite a price for the limited-run edition.

    The chassis and suspension also receive significant upgrades. A flexible front-strut tower bar brace and rear draw stiffener prevent flexing and improve steering response. Different sway bar bushings deform less under load. Shorter coil springs and tweaked damper settings also sharpen the S209’s handling. The vehicle rides on 19-inch BBS forged wheels with Dunlop GT600A summer-only tires.

    For nearly $65,000, buyers get the first Subaru S model to arrive in the United States. These vehicles get specific tuning at STI’s workshop in Kiryu, Japan. The team working on them is so small that the crew can only complete the work on two or three vehicles each day. Because of the degree of the work, the company homologates the S209 as an STI in the United States, rather than a Subaru.

    The S209 will arrive at Subaru dealers in America before the end of the year. Despite the steep price, the small production run could mean that they don’t sit in showrooms very long. Buyers have a choice between WR Blue Pearl exterior paint and matte gray wheels or a Crystal White Pearl body and matte gold finish for the wheels.

    Crystal White Pearl body and matte gold finish wheels for me please !



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?

    Nice!
    This might actually be a worthy competitor to the RS *shock*.

    I had Scoobs for nearly 17 years and loved them.  Problems with the 2.5 engine totally put me off another, so I got an RS with dodgy head gasket instead!

    That’s quite a desirable car and should be well built and good reliability.
