Subaru has begun accepting orders for a particularly powerful version of the WRX STI model. The machine with the TC380 index will be released with a circulation of only 50 copies, all of which are intended exclusively for the domestic Japanese market.
This writes Chronicle.info with reference to 24news.com.ua.
Information about the car is extremely small. For example, only the logo for the special version has been published, and there are no pictures of the car itself yet. The news was prepared under the leadership of Toshihiro Arai – renowned Japanese rally player, two-time world champion in production car WRC.
Even the exact engine power is unclear. – We can only assume that the number 380 in the index means a rounded motor recoil in horsepower. Now the model of the Japanese market is equipped with a two-liter turbocharged engine with a power of 308 horsepower, an alternative for Europe – 2.5 liters, producing 310 horsepower.

Recaro chairs, specially made for this version, are installed in the cabin. – Each is marked with the machine's serial number. Almost the only external difference in the special version will be the front spoiler made of carbon fiber, fixed under the standard front bumper.
The cost of new items will be 4,965,840 yen, which amounts to 43,800 kronor at the present rate. This is 28 percent more than the price of a regular Subaru WRX STI on the Japanese market.
