Set to be sold in Japan as the WRX STI TC 380, and limited to a run of 50, the machine features a range of special components which set it apart from regular models.
Based on Japan's 2.0-litre Subaru WRX STI, the new model benefits from a new turbo, exhaust and catalytic converter sourced through Japanese aftermarket firm HKS, along with a new intake and strut brace developed by former rally driver Toshihiro Arai.
Other elements include a carbon lip spoiler and special Recaro seats.
The "TC 380" badge could be a reference to the car's engine output, which may be 380 horsepower, or 283kW (well up on the standard Japanese car's 227kW peak).
Could this be the last of the petrol WRX STI’s before the hybrid versions are released?
