Subaru of America, Inc. has presented 2013 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Special Editions. The 2013 WRX Special Edition starts from $28,795 and the powerful WRX STI is $34,795. This is an increase of $500 over the non-special edition series, but for these money you get quite a good value.
The Special Edition WRX and WRX STI models feature an “Orange and Black” custom paint scheme, with Tangerine Orange Pearl paint off-set with jet black custom wheels, black front fender badging and exterior mirrors. The Special Editions cars also receive black exterior graphics.
The interior of WRX Special Edition boasts dark trim including a black headliner. The Special Edition orange interior is also applied to the stitching on the seats, doors and shift boot, and custom orange trimmed floor mats. Both vehicles also feature front fog lamps.
The WRX has a turbocharged petrol with 265HP (195 kW) and 330Nm (244 lb-ft) of torque, while the powerful WRX STI has 305HP. The power is put on the road through 6-speed manual gearbox and Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.
The WRX STI is also equipped with Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) and a Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system, the latter featuring a track performance-optimized mode.
The Special Edition series is limited to just 200 units of WRX and 100 units of WRX STI.
