Subaru WRX STI Built for Speed
Built for Speed

Chassis designs for the WRX STI feature exceptional stability and lightning quick response. The high-tensile steel frame and the suspension system – fine-tuned with stiffer stabilisers, quicker spring rates and stiffer pillow ball bushings – offer better overall control. The result is an unprecedented connection between driver, car, and the road.
