Subaru took advantage of their time and spot at the 2008 British Motor Show and used it to show off two new special edition model. The one that caught our eye the most was the 2008 Impreza WRX STI 380S model.
For now it is still being labeled a concept – but we have high hopes that it will make its way into the production line this year or the next. The STI 380S could reach dealers within six months pending positive response. Its final specification will be finalized following customer input and will be hand-built to order.
The STI 380S will include a complete engine rebuild by Prodrive with many up-rated components to reliably achieve the target 380 PS. Improvements over the standard Impreza WRX STI will include uprated suspension and exhaust system plus an enhanced body kit. Other visual changes will be the option of either gold or silver-coloured 18×8.5 ins BBS alloy wheels with 245/40 tyres.
