Subaru S209

Subaru Announces Most Powerful Model Ever

Subaru Tecnica International has announced the most powerful Subaru model to ever come off the line, the STI S209. Designed to encompass greater driver engagement, power, aerodynamics, and handle, this is the first S-line Subaru made just for the U.S. market instead of being traditionally exclusive to the Japanese market as the 2000 through 2018 models were.

 

Drawing inspiration from the STI's more formidable creation, the WRX STI Nurburgring Challenge racecar, the S209 has been designed with high-performance as its focus in every regard. Like the Nurburgring Challenge racecar, the S209 hosts an expanded wide-body exterior treatment, which makes the S209 1.7 inches wider than the standard WRX STI at 72.4 inches wide, and bulging fenders. The S209 also hosts 19x9-inch forged BBS alloy wheels and specially designed 265/35 Dunlop SP Sport Maxx GT600A tires that give the S209 a lateral grip of over 1.0 g. Vents on the front and rear fenders give added engine cooling and reduced drag while Brembo brakes outfitted with high-friction pads and both six-piston monoblock front and two-piston monoblock rear calipers that deliver stout stopping and improved fade-resistance.

 

Underneath the STI S209's hood is a reworked version of the EJ25 2.5-liter turbocharged Boxer engine. With an STI turbocharger, the EJ25 gives out 341 horsepower while its boost pressure has been increased to 18.0 psi. The S209's midrange torque has been improved by 10 percent to 3,600 rpm to deliver higher corner exit speeds. To further improve driver engagement, the S209 is exclusively equipped with a close-ratio six-speed manual transmission and Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system that's outfitted with limited-slip differentials, Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control, Driver Controlled Center Differential, and Active Torque Vectoring. The SI-Drive systems grants the S209 three driving modes; Intelligent, Sport, and Sport Sharp which give improved fuel economy, optimized balance between control and response, and greater acceleration times respectively.

 

Two exterior/wheel color schemes have been announced for the S209, Blue Pearl/gray and Crystal White Pearl/gold. All that and more, such as front bucket seats with silver-hued inserts, Ultrasuede-wrapped D-shaped steering wheel, and a series of specialized badges throughout the vehicle, await as part of Subaru's STI S209. But you'll have to be prepared to grab one as soon as they're out, since only around 200 of these incredible units will be produced. Keep an eye on our inventory to see when we get any on the lot.
