  • Subaru WRX and WRX STi Special Editions Debut at SEMA 2012

    "Subaru has pulled back the curtain on a pair of 2013 WRX and WRX STI Special Edition models ahead of their debut at the 2012 SEMA Show, which kicks off today in Las Vegas. Each car bows with a unique orange and black color scheme that carries over into the cabin. With black wheels, badges and side mirrors, it should easy to pick these machines out of a crowd. Indoors, designers have graced both sedans with a black headliner and the seats feature orange contrast stitching.

    Mechanically, the Special Edition models remain unchanged from their more ordinary counterparts, which means buyers will enjoy 265 horsepower from the WRX and 305 ponies from the more muscular WRX STI. Even so, the flashy paint and trim might be enough to drag buyers to the showroom if you count yourself among that crowd, best get to getting. Subaru is only planning to produce 200 examples of the WRX and another 200 of the WRX STI. Check out the official press blast below for more information, and stay tuned for our live shots from the SEMA show floor."

      Maybe for Halloween? It's a sweet color nonetheless.

      I think the 350z Orange color would look awesome on a wrx/Sri hatch.

      Woulda been sold on a burnt orange. This choice seems...out of place. But I guess that's what they were going for.

      I actually have one of these reserved at the dealership. Its not this exact color, it is a little more of a burnt orange. All pictures of them were "brightened" a bit.

      the only thing i like is that the wheels are black. I love the color orange...but this just does not look good.

      its actually a better looking orange than this...I don't know why sema posted such crappy quality shots of them...

      watch this video and you'll see what the orange really looks like.

      A hatch and loose the stickers on the sides and you are on! Pass in the current configuration though.
