Subaru Set to Reveal the WRX STI Type RA

Spoiler alert! Subaru BRZ STI teased on social media

Spoiler alert! Subaru BRZ STI teased on social media

We're looking at the very same rear wing seen only last week when our spies caught on camera a near-production prototype of BRZ upgraded by the skilled engineers at Subaru Tecnica International. At that time, Subaru said it would arrive in a couple of years' time, and now the company is living up to that promise as the wraps will come off in just about a week.

The standard cars produce 197bhp from a 2.0-litre Subaru-derived engine, with both brands continually resisting calls for a boost in performance.

Subaru has released a teaser photo, revealing the WRX STI Type RA's carbon fiber roof, but Motor1 has even more details about what we can expect. This vehicle was a limited-run BRZ with a bunch of STI parts and badges bolted on - it also sports a wing similar to the STI number in Subaru's teased photo.

The Type RA model designation was first used by Subaru on the WRX in 1993. Now the highly anticipated BRZ STI will make its global debut on June 8th.

Trump's speech to Israeli parliament scrapped amid concerns
Analysts and commentators were left Wednesday wondering what, if anything, Trump might do to resolve the decades-old conflict. Donald Trump was the first sitting president to visit the Western Wall .

Would a BRZ STI with a 300-hp turbo engine be fantastic? Subaru is shooting to break the four-door-sedan lap record on the 'Ring this summer.

In addition to the carbon-fiber roof, we'll likely see enhanced aerodynamics, a re-tuned suspension, and possibly a more potent engine. The WRX STI Type RA NBR Special is a "flipping racecar without stickers" according to Top Gear.

Subaru's Series.HyperBlue BRZ has to be the best FR-S/BRZ package to come out in the lifespan of this auto. Back then, it was a lighter, more aggressive performance version of the WRX. They also offered a limited 200 models of the ultra-exclusive TYPE RA NBR Challenge Package.
