What you’re looking at could be one of the quickest Subaru WRXs to date.

It also has a ridiculously long name.

Built solely for the Japanese market, this bright orange Subaru is officially called the WRX STI tS Type RA.

Still, it should be quick with Subaru giving it a host of track-focused modifications.

Revised suspension with tweaked springs and dampers, a faster steering ratio and big Brembo brakes all add performance, but it’s the big rear wing that points most to the WRX’s track nature.

Just 300 will be built, with none to make the trip Down Under.

Pity.

What if Subaru made a new Brumby?

Subaru has said it has no plans to return to the Brumby, but what if the new Hyundai Santa Cruz and Ford Maverick utes were just too much to ignore..?
