Subaru isn’t exactly one of the most common brands that pass through our showroom, but the vehicles that do are always exciting. Right now, we have one of just 500 units built for the United States of this special edition version of the brand’s iconic sports car. To be more specific, it’s a 2018 Subaru WRX STI Type RA, which was built to commemorate the successful Nurburgring record set by the WRX STI when it became the fastest sedan around the course, and it’s for sale right here and now in North Miami Beach FL.

Technical Specifications & Performance Times
When it comes to performance, the Type RA version of the 2018 WRX STI utilizes the same powertrain but with forged pistons to add 5 horsepower, increasing its total output to 310 hp. It’s powered by a 2.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that’s also capable of generating 290 pound-feet of torque. That kind of power enables the WRX STI to accelerate from a complete top up to 60 miles per hour in 5.2 seconds or to run the quarter mile in 13.6 s.
Compared to the ordinary WRX STI of that particular model year, the Type RA features 18” gold forged wheels and a carbon fiber roof and rear wing, in addition to the forged pistons update. The special edition vehicle was only available in three colors, one of which was the black that this vehicle features. Other premium features found within the sports car include a trio of LCD monitors in the front, a harman/kardon audio system, rocker panel extensions, tinted windows, power heated side mirrors, a pair of 12V DC power outlets, remote keyless entry, dual zone front automatic air conditioning and so much more.
