The Special Edition line-up is limited to just 200 WRX sedans and 100 WRX STI
sedans. For a true custom look, the WRX Special Edition features the dark
interior trim from the WRX STI, including a black headliner. The Special
Edition orange interior is also applied to the stitching on the seats, doors
and shift boot, and custom orange trimmed floor mats. The WRX STI also
features front fog lamps.

On sale in spring of 2013, the Special Editions spice-up an already potent
line up of AWD sports cars. Featuring Subaru BOXER engines, the WRX and WRX
STI models develop 265hp and 305hp respectively. Delivering massive bang for
the buck, the 2013 WRX Special Edition produces 244 lb.-ft. of peak torque at
4,000 rpm and running through its standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive.
The 2013 WRX STI Special Edition delivers a rally-inspired driving experience
with its 305-horsepower turbocharged BOXER engine, six-speed manual
transmission and exclusive Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential
(DCCD) version of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The WRX STI is also
equipped with Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) and a Multi-Mode Vehicle
Dynamics Control (VDC) system, the latter featuring a track
performance-optimized mode.
