Subaru WRX STI Type RA and BRZ tS get a price tag

Exclusive 2018 Subaru BRZ tS Ready to Launch Early in New Year

December 14, 2017, Cherry Hill, N.J. But Subaru is only producing 500 units of the special edition WRX STI when it arrives to dealers in Spring 2018, along with its BRZ tS cousin also in limited quantities. "This is the ultimate expression of driving enjoyment the Subaru and STI brands have been built on".

Motivation is provided by a turbocharged 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine which has been equipped with a cold air intake, a high-performance exhaust system, an optimized ECU, and new pistons. The engine comes exclusively mated to a six-speed manual transmission.

The WRX STI Type RA is a lot like a regular STI, but one that stole its little brother's ADD meds and drinks only energy drinks of questionable legality. Subaru has tweaked the Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC), too.

Under the sheet metal, there's Bilstein STI sport-tuned suspension, with special Bilstein dampers used for the inverted-strut front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension. Shared with all 2018 WRX STI cars will be Active Torque Vectoring and new Brembo brakes with stronger mono block 6-piston calipers at the front, together with monoblock 2-piston calipers at the rear. New brake pads provide greater surface area for improved braking feel and fade resistance.

Exclusive 2018 Subaru BRZ tS Ready to Launch Early in New Year

It features a modestly revised exterior with a carbon fiber roof, a carbon fiber rear wing, and 19-inch BBS forged alloy wheels. The WRX STI Type RA will be available in WR Blue Pearl, Crystal Black Silica and Crystal White Pearl.

Inside, there are Recaro seats as standard, with STI logos and red bolsters and trim. Elsewhere, there's red contrast stitching and an individually numbered plaque on the center console.

"Unlike most track stars void of the bulky features, this rocket finds a 7.0" Multimedia Plus System that includes smartphone integration, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity and audio streaming as well as an extensive list of STARLINK cloud apps, so everyday driving and chores like getting groceries in a rigid machine won't be all that bad. On the other hand, the BRZ tS will be a tad cheaper with a price tag of $34,355. The rear trunk lid displays the official BRZ tS badge. No engine upgrades, but there are now STI-tuned front and rear SACHS dampers and coil springs, while the engine compartment gets an STI flexible V-brace. New draw stiffeners should improve steering response, too. The BRZ tS is fitted with lightweight STI wheels that are mounted with 215/40 R 18 Michelin Pilot Sport tires for superior grip and quicker turn-in. It also gets an upgraded braking system with Brembo rotors, 4-piston front calipers and 2-piston rear calipers. The coupe's also features a front fascia that is exclusive to the tS model. The addition of STI front, rear and side underspoilers helps control airflow for better traction and stability. Completing the revised look inside are red front seatbelts and a frameless rear-view mirror.

In the cabin, the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system is also standard, and here includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support.
