Japanese Subaru fans are in for a treat as the manufacturer has unveiled a special limited edition take on its WRX STI. Dubbed the WRX STI S207, the Japanese exclusive boasts a bevy of updates — the headline of which is a 2.0-liter turbo boxer engine.

Thanks to a new ECU and twin scroll ball bearing turbocharger, the new engine now offers 318 lb-ft of torque while a performance muffler and exhaust pipe have been added. Other tweaks include Bilstein front struts, rear dampers, and coil springs, as well as a mesh front grille, larger front under-spoiler, metallic side sill moldings, a new rear bumper, a Brembo braking system and an 11:1 steering-gear ratio. The design even employs a completely reworked instrument panel, engine switch, shift knob, and heated Recaro bucket seats while the Vehicle Dynamics Control and Active Torque have been tuned specifically for the model.

Limited to just 400 units, the WRX STI S207 will soon be available in “Crystal Black Silica,” “Crystal White Pearl,” “WR Blue Pearl” and “NBR Challenge Package Yellow.”

Ahead of its public debut at the Detroit Auto Show comes the first look at the upcoming 2015 Subaru WRX STI. Decked out in Subaru’s signature look of royal blue with golden wheels – not to mention a massive rear wing – the WRX STI is expected to make use of a turbocharged 2.5-liter boxer four capable of about 300 hp and 290 lb-ft of torque. As it’s part of the STI family, expect the usual accoutrements like upgraded breaks and a tuned suspension over that of the base WRX.
