This is the limited edition Subaru Impreza WRX, the S204 STi, a numbered model, which has an incredible list of hidden arguments up its sleeve.
STi engineers were not content with producing high-performance, high-performance Imprezas for the everyday driver and rally driver, so the Japanese brand declared its clear intentions to make the STi division, in response to Mercedes' AMG -Benz and M Performance at BMW. The intention came in the form of the incredible S204, with a production limited to 600 units. It is on the most winding roads that the S204 finds its natural habitat. Inheriting a reworked 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine from its predecessor (the S203) which produces 320 hp and 432 Nm of torque at 4,400 rpm.
Exclusively produced for the Japanese market, the S204 has some factory differences from the “common” models, including a twin-scroll turbo, changes to the exhaust system, STi intercooler and sports ECU. Ride balance has also been improved, with lower suspension, Yamaha-designed dampers and 21mm anti-roll bars. On the outside, among other changes, the BBS rims make up the set prepared for above-average performances.
This unit is a true collector's item. It is in excellent original condition, without restoration or repainting. It brings the original manuals.
