  • Subaru reveals the US-bound WRX STI Type RA and BRZ tS

Subaru Tecnica International fans need to keep a close eye on the company on June 8 because the automaker is going to present not only the new WRX STI Type RA but also the US -spec version of the once Japan-exclusive BRZ tS - the first teaser of the vehicle, a wing, was delivered last month and now there's a second official glimpse via Subaru's Facebook page.

The extra power, new gearing, and the reduced weight "contribute to faster acceleration", Subaru said in the press release, but the automaker didn't give specific numbers on how much quicker the Type RA might be. Dubbed the WRX STI Type RA and BRZ tS, both will be offered in WR Blue Pearl, Crystal Black Silica and Crystal White Pearl.

The vehicle will go on sale in the first quarter of 2018 and just 500 versions will be built. Instead, Subaru says this variant of its sports coupe "delivers the highest level of "fun to drive" and "pure handling delight" through greater flexibility, better control and stability". This new model is named for the upcoming WRX STI Type RA NBR Special race auto that will attempt a Nürburgring record sometime this summer.

Greatest Ever? Warriors Beat Cavaliers to Move One Win From Perfection
His performance is a major step down from what he did in last year's Finals when he averaged a double-double (10.3 pts, 10.1 reb). The 2016-17 Warriors are like no other team we've ever seen before, but they're one we could be seeing for years to come.

The BRZ tS receives its own set of changes to differentiate it from the normal model. There is a large carbon fiber wing with manual adjustment, new front and rear diffusers, Cherry Blossom accents, and a number of STI logos inside and out. However, that addition is limited to just 5 horses (or so, given Subaru's use of the word "estimated").

The exterior has been upgraded with 19-inch BBS forged alloy wheels wrapped in Yokohama Advan Sport tires, along with a carbon fiber pedestal wing, silver-painted brake calipers with cross-drilled rotors, and cherry blossom red accents around the mesh grille and rear bumper cover. The spare tire has also been removed. The BRS tS also gets new Recaro seats and red contrasting stitching throughout the cabin. A plaque inside shows only 500 Type RAs will be made. The first RA was named for a Subaru Legacy that broke the FIA World Speed Endurance Record by clocking over 62,000 miles in 18 days, setting a top speed of 138 mph.

You'll be shocked to hear that the record this Subaru will be going for is a Nürburging speed one, which will be attempted by a race-prepped NBR Special variant this summer.
