2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Spec C

Posted on by 18

The new 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI saloon was officially unveiled at the 2010 New York Auto Show, but our spy photographer has captured the big-winged saloon testing at the Nürburgring.

At first impression, it seems the car is nothing more than the European version of the high-performance saloon. Upon closer inspection, however, there are some differences clearly suggesting that the STI seen here may very well be a prototype for a Spec C model. This is especially convincing since most white Japanese cars are usually special editions.

These differences include the matte black alloys, gold color brembo brake calipers, and the front lip spoiler, all of which were not shown on the show car, but are standout features on the JDM Impreza STI Spec C hatchback .

If it does turn out to be a Spec-C expect a power hike over the standard 305hp to around 350hp. There should also be a weight reduction from the use of a smaller battery, aluminum body panels, and a revised firmer suspension including a more track focused limited slip differential.

Yeah, I agree on that one. And maybe that’s the reason why they haven’t killed this production in fact there is a continuous aftermarket version on this car.

The good thing about the Subaru is that, they don’t have a lot of production but when they got to released a car. Well, its almost perfect from the exterior all the way into its interior and also the speed performance of this car.

I like the cleanliness in the design and detailing of this car and the figure performance is great as well. And I think the weight reduction for the car really helps to increase its speed.

I don’t get why you guys waste your time commenting on this car..there are lot of amazing car in this site that is worth wasting of ’effort”.

@ martybrown - making the STI sedan is not a bad Idea, because sticking to a one body type will make the consumer get sick to the
car.

Personally Subaru is so impressive, nope wonder it’s one of the respected car model..

Progress is wonderful. Its before March brought us wonders as great as sliced bread, democracy, and the weight Shake, strange as seen-on TV product that dubious pacts a workout while toning and six minutes a day.

I have two kids and debt and I still bought one. Do it. You won’t regret the decision. Now I’m just waiting to pass 1000 miles so I can open her up a little bit!

Type C weight is 1450kg for the 18inch wheel version or 1430kg for the 17inch wheel version over the standard STI which is 1480kg, price for the type C is 3,685,500 Yen.

I wish that to be true - I’m pretty sure the STI would run circles around the GTI. Now the R20... I think the jury is still out

Honestly, Subaru should stick with the hatchback. It’s the only one that looks nice and still performs.

I think this 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI are going to the highest level until it can almost beat the Evo’s superior handling.

This is another Spec from subaru. Subaru releases a lot of specs but it’s exterior looks is still the same.

Impressive impresza but i wonder does the team subaru STI still continues the Rally Education center?

I’m pretty sure subaru is really taking up the impreza to the next level of dirt car. i hope Lan Evo can still catch up with the impreza.

Yes a whole new wrx was already rolling out the streets of japan. So nimble and aggressive but still It cannot beat the Evo’s superior handling.
