Subaru Legacy STI S402 Adds Power, Fender Vents

Rubbing our faces in the fact that we don't even get the Subaru Legacy STI, the folks at Subie are going out and adding a limited edition S402 to the Japanese lineup. Planned for — get this — only 402 units, the S402 features a slightly detuned version of the turbo'd 2.5 liter boxer good for 285 HP and 292 lb.ft. of toque. Other upgrades include include two piece Brembos, various garish badging, "sport" suspension and revised steering ratio, fancy seating, some BBS wheels wrapped in Potenzas (which we think are over rated) and some body tweaks.

On those body tweeks, it looks like Subaru is the latest to fall victim to the ridiculous fender vent trend. We thought you were better than that Subaru. We can't wait for Rex's to start showing up with Buick-inspired fender vents at the evening drive-in. [Carscoop]
