    Subaru WRX STI S207 Aims to be ‘World’s Most Enjoyable Vehicle’


    The Subaru WRX STI S207 has been announced at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, limited to just 400 units for the Japanese market.

    The Japanese automaker is making a bold claim with the limited edition WRX STI, saying that it aims to be the 'world’s most enjoyable vehicle.' Although that will surely be debatable, the WRX STI will a range-topping model packing 324 horsepower, up from the standard 305-hp figure. Handling has been enhanced with a quick steering ratio of 11:1 while other suspension upgrades include an STI flexible tower bar, DampMatic II front suspension with adjustable damping and front-rear Active Torque Vectoring. Braking performance has been overhauled with a set of Brembo six-piston calipers up front and four-piston calipers in the rear with drilled rotors.

    Man, I don't know about the rest of you all, but to me this color combination and spoiler package looks VERY good. If I were looking to get a new STI I'd be drooling over this! I wonder how they got the extra 19 horses - different tune?

    That yellow does look awesome!

    First time in a while they've been able to squeeze some more ponies out of the STI, I'm curious to know what they did.

    From what I'm reading, it's a small increase increase in turbo pressure and a tuning tweak to get those extra ponies. That's according to Road & Track anyway.
    They're only making 100 in yellow...400 total...and it's Japanese market only. Of course.

    That's almost certainly not an FA20DIT. They've yet to use that motor in any STI.

    True. I'm not sure if its that 2.0 is the same (or similar) motor from the 24hr Nurburgring car or not.

    I'm sure it is still the EJ20, but it uses twin scroll turbos so I guess that's "newer"??

    Although, I wouldn't be surprised it was FA based....

    If it's twin scroll, it has to have equal length headers, correct? That would give some extra power right there.

    What is with everything thinking that it's a new motor? Japan has always had a 2.0 for the standard STI.

    EJ207 has used a twin-scroll and ELH since the V8 STI (2003) with the current STI at 304hp in Japan. The extra power comes from additional tweaks including a fully blueprinted rotating assembly and likely some additional mapping.
