Subaru breaks a new record with the WRX STI Type RA at the Nürburgring

to Talk about Subaru and not to talk about sportsmanship (in addition to being the brand with the best traction system in a symmetric market) is a sin. The japanese firm has proposed, with the creation of the new WRX STI Type RA Nürburgring Nordschleife Special to break all the records that can be in the iconic German circuit. This model is not a vehicle on the street, because it has many parts made of carbon fiber and most importantly, a boxer engine turbo tight with 600 bhp of power.

As has been communicated to the house of the constellation of Taurus, just mark a new record for a saloon of four doors in the legendary green hell. The model that has participated in the test, the above-named WRX STI Type RA, has been created especially for this fact. Prodrive is the one who has been in charge of construirlor and some of the technical details that will help you to be devilishly fast is your roof and spoiler rear carbon fiber, the suspension lowered, your brakes signed by Brembo, and the rims of alloy of the specialist BBS with 19-inch and tires Yokohama Advan Sports.

To move to this beast Subaru has modified the boxer engine that animates the version WRX STI “conventional” to take it to the maximum. That is, we speak of an engine with four opposing cylinders with 2 liters of displacement and 600 hp of maximum power. Thanks to this killing machine Subaru has marked a new record, so has completed a lap of the circuit in German in just 6:57:5 mins. This fact had never been hit by a vehicle in a configuration of 4 doors, so the japanese firm is aiming a bit more to his distinguished list of achievements in sport.

With all of this movement Subaru seeks to attract more faithful to its range of models. The reason for this is the launch to the end of the year of a special edition of the WRX that is referred to as STI Type RA. With this model, and its preparation (specific street, not the one presented in the circuit German) propose a dynamic driving even more precise, as well as an exterior design improved. Its boxer engine of 2 liters will yield 310 hp and will be linked to a gearbox of manual cutting with 6 relations.

All a true declaration of intentions, a penalty that is not going to make the sale. Bravo Subaru!!!
