Subaru Impreza WRX STI now in Dubai
The economic crisis is bringing about some unexpected benefits for car enthusiasts. Cars which were previously in high demand in America are lying around unsold, and that stock is now being dumped onto the GCC market by various manufacturers. The latest one to do so is Subaru, as their Impreza WRX STI is now officially available in Dubai.
The 305 hp WRX STI hatchback is one step short of a rally car, as well as a direct competitor for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, and previously only available on special order or via private imports. Ironically, we only found out about this new launch after seeing an awful ad for it in a free copy of Wheels we picked up somewhere. For more details on the car, check out our previous report on the Japanese 2.0-litre turbo version. However, the American 2.5-litre turbo version is coming here. More details here.
