So if you want some carbon over your heads, you have to get the 4 door sedan WRX STI tS instead of the more potent Spec C version. Anyway, the limited to 400 unit STI tS gets what all tS tuned Subarus get – all the STI goodies. Carbon fiber roof, an aluminum bonnet, a front lip spoiler, an STI-tuned suspension & bracing, and 18-inch alloy wheels. Inside, you get RECARO sport seats, a push-button ignition, and STI sill plates. What it doesn’t seem to have is the large goalpost-like wing at the rear. Another strange omission in my opinion.
You get two versions, one with the 2.0liter flat-4 turbocharged engine pumping out 304bhp/ 430Nm torque and a 6 speed manual transmission and another with a 2.5liter flat-4 turbocharged engine making 296bhp/350Nm torque with a 5 speed automatic transmission for lazier STI enthusiasts. This lazier STI is called the A-line.
The Japan only STI tS is limited to 400 units and is on sale in early 2011 for 4,020,000yen. I suppose this would not stop gray importers from bringing one over if there is demand.
