Limited Edition Subaru WRX STI S209 At Competition Subaru of Smithtown

 

The STI brand has been a huge part of the Subaru brand for the past 30 years. Subaru decided to celebrate the performance model with an all new 2019 Subaru WRX STI S209. However, the new model is extremely limited edition. With only 209 models being sold in the United States, and the fact that there are around 600 Subaru dealerships in the United States, getting your hands on one of these limited edition models may be extremely difficult.

Out of the 600 Subaru dealerships in the United States, Competition Subaru of Smithtown was able to get their hands on one of the S209 models.

 

But what makes the 2019 Subaru WRX STI S209 so special compared to other STI models?

Quick glance and the limited edition S209 looks extremely similar to the 2019 WRX STI model design. Take a closer look at the models tech specs and mechanics and you’ll learn all the difference. The S209 carries an EJ25 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder boxer which is standard in the 2020 WRX STI and STI Limited. However, the S209’s engine was reworked immensely. The S209 has a larger HKS turbocharger as well as larger injectors, resulting in 341 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque. Compared to the current STI’s 310 horsepower and 290 lb-ft of torque, the S209 makes for a huge advantage on the road and racetrack. The S209’s wide tires and flexible tower brace contribute to its incredible levels of grip. It is also designed with a low-restriction exhaust and a lighter flywheel.

 

Subaru did everything in their power to make the S209 as light as can be. Subaru designed the S209 with a carbon-fiber roof that helped save the model 8 pounds. 90 pounds heavier than the Type RA, the S209 comes in at about 3,500 pounds which is still relatively light compared to other performance vehicles.

The S209 comes available in 2 colors. With only 209 models for sale in the U.S., buyers cannot be picky. There will be 128 S209’s available in World Rally Blue with matte-gray wheels and only 81 Crystal White S209’s that come with matte-gold wheels.

 

The S209 model here at Competition Subaru of Smithtown is in World Rally Blue with matte-gray wheels. This is the 12th model out of the 209 models.
