The Subaru WRX STI S209 is the latest in a series of special editions that have never been sold in the United States before. The 341-horsepower pocket rocket debuts at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show. Subaru only plans to build “around” 200 copies of the S209, all earmarked for the U.S.

Subaru has offered S20(X) series cars in Japan since the S201 of 2001. These upgraded versions of the WRX STI typically feature more power and other performance upgrades, and the S209 is no different. The 2.5-liter turbocharged boxer-four engine produces 341 horsepower, compared to 310 hp for a standard U.S.-spec WRX STI. Subaru didn’t supply a torque figure for the S209, but said the special edition is its most powerful production model ever.

The extra power comes courtesy of a larger turbocharger, lighter and stronger forged pistons and connecting rods, a higher-flow fuel pump working with larger fuel injectors, and a less-restrictive exhaust system. Subaru also brought back a cult-classic feature from the 2004-2007 STI (the first version sold in the U.S.): a driver-controllable system that sprays water on the intercooler. This lowers the temperature of air going into the engine, which helps make more power. The only available transmission is a six-speed manual transmission and, naturally for a Subaru, all-wheel drive is standard.

    This may be a good car, but, man, is it ugly. It looks like Frankenstein's monster with stitched-together pieces galore.
