Subaru WRX SR40

Subaru launches ultra exclusive 2013 WRX RS40 in Australia

The last current-generation special edition 2013 Subaru WRX is being launched in Australia called the RS40.

Subaru Australia is launching a limited-run special edition 2013 WRX RS40 sedan to commemorate the 40th anniversary in Australia. It’s been 20 years since the original turbocharged “pocket rocket” WRX went on sale in Japan and it’s been a big success around the globe. This will be the very last current generation WRX special edition model. We knew it was going to be launched but now we have details on the 20th anniversary limited edition WRX.

The all-wheel-drive WRX RS40 will come in sedan models only and and will be very limited with Subaru producing only 300 examples for the Australian market. All will come in WR Blue Mica paint. Subaru Managing Director, Nick Senior, said, “WR Blue remains a customer favorite color in the WRX palette, so it’s entirely fitting that this last-in-line special edition of the current car carries the famous blue and gold combination.”

The special edition RS40 adds more than $7000 worth of features that pay tribute to Subaru’s motorsport heritage. Outside, the RS40 gets gold colored 17-inch alloy wheels, STI front and rear spoilers, and WR RS40 decals. Under the hood there will also be an STI flexible tower strut brace. Inside it comes with a STI short shift gear assembly, Recaro seats with blue colored Alcantara inserts and numbered RS40 internal badge.
