Subaru has announced plans to offer the WRX STI NR4 Spec in Australia.

Designed to appeal to "enthusiasts and professional teams," the motorsports-only model is FIA-homologated and is eligible to compete in both FIA WRC2 and ERC2 championships.

Subaru didn't have much to say about the car itself but they confirmed it features a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine and will need to be equipped with FIA-approved roll cage which can be ordered at the time of purchase.  The model will only be available in two colors - White or WR Blue exterior - and Subaru said Possum Bourne Motor Sport is already developing a range of packages that will "suit everyone from club amateur to the professional."

Subaru will only be importing a limited number of models and they will each be priced from $38,000 AUD.
