Subaru UK has released details of a power upgrade for the WRX STI, while at the same time lowering the price tag.
Prices now start at £26,695 for the WRX STI –roughly £6,000 lower. Subaru UK also announced a new financing option which can see customers paying less than £300 a month.
Opting for the WRX STI 340R increases power by 40hp, meaning a total of 340hp and 490 Nm (361lb ft) of torque. The extra power comes courtesy of a modified ECU and new exhaust system for the turbocharged 2.5-litre flat-four engine.
The 340R upgrade costs £1,599, and is available alongside the 320R (320hp and 450 Nm) which was introduced last year. Acceleration from 0-60mph will take 4.7 seconds, half a second faster than a standard WRX STI.
A Torsen rear differential as well as fully-independent suspension is standard. The 340R is available to order immediately.
