Subaru’s new U.S.-bound special editions are lighter, sharper, and rarer

Subaru is releasing new versions of the WRX STI and BRZ, which initially got enthusiasts salivating.

The 2018 Subaru BRZ tS and WRX STI Typa RA are limited editions, with production runs of 500 units each.

While they do feature some performance tweaks from Subaru’s STI (Subaru Tecnica International) division, they don’t represent a huge leap from their respective base models.

That may disappoint fans, who were particularly hoping for a more powerful “BRZ STI,” along the lines of 2015’s STI Performance Concept.

Still, these two new Subies shouldn’t be dismissed.

The “RA” in “WRX STI Type RA” stands for “Record Attempt.” Subaru has made plenty of those over the years, including one that yielded the fastest time for a car over the Isle of Man TT course.
