Subaru has announced the new special edition Impreza WRX STI S206, which hits the Japan market. It is based on the 4-door SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI and features 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. The exterior modifications includes a new front spoiler, a revised grille, ventilated fenders and 19" BBS wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires. You can also opt for the NBR challenge package, which adds a carbon fiber roof, a carbon fiber rear spoiler and black BBS wheels.

The interior boasts a genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel, "RECARO" racing bucket seats, and seatbelts.

The WRX STI S206 also comes with a front tower brace, Brembo brakes and specially tuned Bilstein shocks. The chassis is stiffened and the VDC (Vehicle Dynamics Control) system is also revised.

Furthermore, you'll get more power because of the ECU re-map, upgraded pistons and a high-performance crankshaft. The turbocharged boxer engine delivers 320PS (235 kW) and 431Nm (318 lb-ft)

Only 300 units will be produced.
