While there are a number of Subaru models that have inspired the merchandise range, the launch of a new Motorsport WRX Sti could offer even greater choices.
The Limited WRX Sti Model:
The local arm of the Japanese auto giant has made the decision to import a limited number of the WRX Sti motorsport model in response to enthusiast and professional demand. This 2.0 litre turbocharged four door model has come from winning pedigree stock with triumphs in tarmac and rally events around the world. The model has been dubbed as the WRX Sti NR4 spec. It is FIA homologated, and the model is eligible for ERC2, WRC2 and progressive national championships. The model meets all the new NR4 FIA regulations, which have replaced the previous R4 and N4 classes.
The base model is available from $38,000 and Possum Bourne Motor Sport, the Subaru long term motorsport partner, is said to be developing several packages for this model to suit a variety of requirements from club amateurs to professionals. The turbocharged 2.0-litre engine is only available locally for this model.
Potential for Subaru Merchandise:
This new limited model has created a great opportunity for Subaru Merchandise. Australia Subaru Managing Director, Nick Senior, has said that the current WRX and WRX Sti models have created interest in turbocharged variants harking back to the 1990s legendary Subaru models. This has resulted in a “new wave of interest” for motorsport activities and potential merchandise.
According to Senior, the model represents “fantastic value” for any motorsport enthusiast. The new WRX perfectly showcases the All Wheel Drive system, which has made the model legendary in the past twenty years. The spec for the WRX Sti NR4 means that it is for motorsport use only and will not be able to be registered for road use. Any buyer will need to have an FIA approved roll cage fitted. This cage can be ordered when the vehicle is purchased to allow for fitting pre delivery. There are two colour options available; WR Blue and white.
While no official merchandise information details have not yet been released, it is likely that the release of this model will spawn a great deal of interest. Subaru enthusiasts are sure to be keen to commemorate this limited edition vehicle with a full range of Subaru merchandise. The current WRX model already has a great range of merchandise including clothing, hats, key chains, umbrellas, sporting equipment and toys. This great selection is perfect for any Subaru enthusiast to express their support for this amazing auto brand.
