Japanese Tease: Impreza WRX STi Spec C Type RA-R

Sorry for the tease, resident Subaruites of non-Japanese citizenship. Subie Japan is only offering the Impreza WRX STi spec C Type RA-R in the prefectures of Nihon, Powered by the same tweaked-out 2.0-liter rallysport-bred flat four as the S204 Impreza means this limited-edition STi's been boosted to 320 hp (at 6,400 rpm) ~318 ft-lbs of torque (at 4,400 rpm). That's accomplished by way of a wider turbo, software tweaks and performance-grade exhaust. Only 300 examples of the alphabet-soup model will be built — in three colors: yellow, white and mica — all with suspension tweaks and 18" wheels, front spoiler, red accent striping and roof scoop. The optional-equipment list includes a carbon-fiber deck spoiler, Recaro seats and alloy rims. Don't even try to sneak one in the country, kids, the Feds are watching. [Gallery]
