Limited Edition Subaru WRX Club Spec 11 announced in Australia
The new Subaru WRX Club Spec 11 follows in the tradition of the earlier Club Spec models with luxury upgrades inside, sporty upgrades outside and a flashy, unique paint option. Production is limited to just 300 units and all new Club Spec 11 models will be based on the WRX sedan fitted with a 5-speed manual transmission only. This drivetrain is good for 262 horsepower (195kW) @ 6,000rpm and 253lb-ft of torque (343NM) at 4,000rpm – enough to propel this sporty sedan from a stop to 62 miles per hour in just 5.3 seconds. Of course, the WRX Club Spec 11 comes with a sport tuned suspension and Subaru’s advanced all wheel drive system with a viscous limited slip differential.
The upgrades to the new Australia-only Subaru WRX Club Spec 11 package begin on the outside with black 17” lightweight wheels, a black rear spoiler (borrowed from the STI), black side mirrors, a unique Club Spec 11 exterior badge, unique WRX badging and the flashy Tangerine exterior paint choice shown on the right. The new WRX Club Spec 11 is also available in black. Inside, the Club Sport 11 sports a leather trim package that includes special Tangerine stitching on the seats for those vehicles with that exterior color while the black models feature red stitching along with a unique serialized Club Spec badge.
“WRX continues to have tremendous appeal in its widebody form and combined with the retained value traditionally achieved by these limited editions, there’s likely to be a lot of interest in these cars, which can be differentiated even further from standard WRX with the addition of the STI kit, “ said Nick Senior, Managing Director of Subaru Australia.
