Subaru Prices 2013 WRX and WRX STI Special Editions, We Suddenly Want Pumpkin Pie
Subaru has released MSRPs for the quite-orange WRX and WRX STI special editions it announced last November. The WRX sedan is set at $29,565, the STI sedan at $35,565. Both represent an increase of $500 over the standard-issue rally weapons.
Unveiled at the automotive sideshow known as SEMA, this pair of harvest-hued Subies will be limited to a total production run of 300 units. The split: 200 WRXs, 100 STIs. The mods are purely cosmetic, with both cars powered by the same 2.5-liter flat-four as their less-pumpkinish brethren, which means 265 horsepower and 244 lb-ft of torque in the WRX and 305 horsepower and 290 lb-ft in STI tune.
- First Drive: 2013 Ford Focus ST
- Instrumented Test: 2012 Volkswagen Golf R
- Long-Term Road Test Wrap-Up: 2010 Mazdaspeed 3
The WRX channels its might through a five-speed manual and on to all four wheels; the STI version employs a six-speed manual and adds a driver-controlled center diff to the AWD setup and a track performance-optimized mode for the stability control.
We’re guessing a large chunk of these were already spoken for even before pricing was announced, so you’ll want to get on the horn to your local dealer right now if you’re interested. You’ll likely have to beat Linus van Pelt to the punch, after all.
