Subaru WRX STI Diamond Edition: 354 hp from South Africa

Subaru WRX STI Diamond Edition
Subscriptions & booklets

When we talk about the Subaru brand, blue all-wheel-drive athletes on golden rims immediately snap in front of the motorsport enthusiast's mind . Apart from the golden rims, Subaru is satisfying these days daydreaming about the Impreza WRC rally car, or the current road car W RX STI. Because with the 354 PS strong Diamond Edition special model, the Japanese are putting the most powerful WRX STI on the road, which is currently available for money from dealers.

But the good news unfortunately has a huge downside: The 464 Newton-meter-strong special model is limited to 30 copies and only available as a right-hand drive. And that is extremely unfortunate, because the sprint time of 5.03 seconds from zero to 100 km /h and the top speed of 255 kilometers per hour promise a lot of driving pleasure. Its series brother takes 5.76 seconds. The WRX STI, which is significantly stronger than the 300 PS and 407 Newton-meter base model, will cost the equivalent of around 49,500 euros, be built in South Africa and shipped to its customers worldwide.

Collector's item: Subaru WRX STI Diamond Edition

His fans love it for this rear view.

Interested parties can register online for the purchase. However, the South African server doesn't seem to be able to cope with such high demand - it crashes regularly. And: Whether the Subaru WRX STI Diamond Edition may even be approved in Germany, also depends on both the nerves and the wallet of the customer. Because an individual acceptanceincluding a certificate and a subsequent TÜV acceptance would be mandatory, can drag and cost several thousand euros. It is definitely an exciting vehicle for collectors, as the normal WRX has been withdrawn from the range across Europe. The reason: The emissions regulations are not compatible with the 300 hp, 2.5 liter boxer engine, i.e. it consumes too much and emits too many pollutants.
