Subaru Australia unveiled a new special edition based on the Impreza WRX sedan. Called the WRX Club Spec 10, this special edition will be limited to only 250 units and will be priced at $49,990. Sales will begin in May.
This special edition will be distinguished by an STI front lip spoiler, a flexible strut tower bar, a flexible lower bar and front support kit, 17-inch Enkei alloy wheels, factory-fitted leather seats, sunroof and satellite navigation.
At $49,990, it seems that consumers will only be paying for the exclusivity of owning this special edition considering not many fancy upgrades have been made to substantiate the dramatic increase in price. Of course, if this is the type of thing that tickles your fancy then feel free to head down to the Subaru dealerships where they are now taking orders for this special edition model.
Press release after the jump.
Subaru Australia will release its special edition Impreza WRX Club Spec 10 in May.
As the number suggests, it is the latest in a long-running series of limited edition Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive Impreza WRXs, each of which has proved a retained value winner.
The potent Impreza WRX Club Spec 10 adds several technical enhancements from the Subaru Tecnica International (STI) catalogue, plus luxury interior features. An STI front lip spoiler enhances aerodynamics and improves stability and cornering.
A flexible strut tower bar helps to ensure the front wheels maintain excellent ground contact to improve cornering capacity, while delivering a vibrant and sharp steering response.
The flexible lower bar and front support kit add strength, reduce chassis flex and produce sharper steering. Lightweight, 17-inch Enkei alloy wheels are half an inch wider than the standard Impreza WRX rim. The extra width stiffens the sidewall, reduces deflection and produces more grip, especially when cornering.
Comfort is also a priority and the Impreza WRX Club Spec 10 gets factory-fitted leather seats, sunroof and satellite navigation.
Only 250 will be built and all feature special edition badging. Available in WR Blue, Obsidian Black and Satin White sedan only, Impreza WRX Club Spec 10 is priced at $49,990 Recommended Driveaway Price (RDP)*.
