2019 Tokyo Motor Show : The Japan-Only Subaru WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition

The current generation of the Subaru WRX STI is coming to a close and Subie’s celebrating with a WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition

The 2019 edition of the Tokyo Motor Show will serve as the official send-off for the current generation Subaru WRX STI and its long-lived EJ20 turbocharged engine. Said EJ20 has served Subaru for over 30 years and we salute it. We also salute the fact that this Final Edition WRX STI is perfectly representative of the car’s legacy and heritage.

This car will also be made available in very limited numbers, 555 units to be exact. It will also only be solid in its home market but we can still appreciate it from afar. Subaru WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition will be offered in either World Rallye Blue, Crystal White or Crystal Black. It will feature superb Recaro seats, Brembo brakes at all corners, superb gold 19×8-inch BBS forged wheels, and the typical slew of cherry-red stripes and STI logos.

The EJ20 turbocharged 2.0-litre Boxer 4-cylinder engine, which once powered Colin McRae (1995), Richard Burns (2001) and Petter Solberg’s (2003) WRC cars, will produce 304-horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 311 lb.-ft. of torque from 4,400 rpm. As always, it will be mated to a 6-speed manual transmission and Subaru’s AWD system.

A more appropriate Final Edition, we could not imagine. Production officially ends on December 23rd of this year. Yes, the King will be dead. Which means, long live the King! We are looking forward to the next generation WRX STI!
