Subaru of America Releases New Video Showcasing the Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special
Cherry Hill, N.J. - Subaru of America, Inc. announced today the release of a new video of the Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special. The car will attempt to set a new lap record for a four-door sedan at the famous Nürburgring race track later this summer. The video can be found on the Subaru of America YouTube channel. Stay tuned for information on the production Type RA coming on June 8th.

It will be interesting to see what Subaru has up their sleeve for the production model! I canceled my '18 STi order pending model details.

Theres STi Type RA coming out this month:
It will have new Bilstein dampers and an otherwise upgraded suspension, a carbon fiber rear spoiler, a carbon fiber roof, 19-inch forged BBS wheels painted gold, Recaro seats, and some mix of “gearing and engine upgrades."

Looking at the big brake duct opening plastic inserts, it looks to me like the '18 front end.

A mix of gearing and engine upgrades? Have a link to official info on this? And this is going to be available at dealerships as a production version? Guess they are making good on the philosophy of bringing models th at were only available over seas to the U.S now. Probably going to be a quick car.

This is going to have to be amazing for me to cancel my 2018 order, but thankfully the deposit is refundable.
