Subaru only built 500 examples of the 2018 WRX STI Type RA limited edition for U.S. market. Hagerty says the limited run vehicles shouldn’t be sitting in the garage. ”We look for vehicles that push boundaries and beg to be driven, and these cars meet that test.” says McKeel Hagerty, CEO of Hagerty.

Hagerty says, “The WRX has a long history that has developed its own tribe of brand champions. The limited production of 500 Type RAs makes this the instant collectible of the 2018 Hot List.” In 2015, the Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition also made Hagerty’s hot list of future classics.
