The Subaru WRX STI S208 will be sold exclusively in the Land of the Rising Sun.

At the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, Subaru showcased its S207 as a high performance edition of the widely-known WXR STI. The car was solely sold in the home country with a limited run of only 400 vehicles.

This time, history repeats itself with the Subaru WRX STI S208 (or the Subaru WRX STI 2017 for sale) but the number of units produced has been increased by 50 units.

Even though precise information about the upcoming WRX STI S208 hasn’t been unveiled yet, the Japanese automaker says that its new sedan will come with “significant changes” covering both in-, exterior design and the hardware as well.

As an illustration, the roof is currently made of carbon fiber to reduce weight as well as the center of gravity. Regarding the previous S207, the car can make a great output of 328 horsepower, so we can definitely look for a better performance on the S208. In addition, the upgrades will also carry over the car’s suspension.
