Feast your eyes on another model that won’t grace American streets with its presence – The Subaru Impreza STI Spec C. The Subaru Impreza STI Spec C just went on sale in Japan and boasts 304HP and 311ft/lbs of torque from, get this, a 2.0L. Helping to achieve that number from the 2.0L is a reworked ball bearing sin the turbocharger, ECU retune and intercooler water sprayer. The performance doesn’t come from power alone, the body has gone on a crash diet of sorts with a smaller battery, lightened hood and even lightweight Laminar glass.
In addition, the Spec C get’s an aesthetic treatment ranging from red stitched Recaros to lightweight 18-inch alloy wheels. Production is limited to 900 units, so if you’re overseas, get in line… quick.
