Subaru WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition Drops The Curtain On Legendary Engine

One of the models petrolheads will look for at the 2019 Tokyo Motor Show is without a doubt the Subaru WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition.

Exclusive to the Japanese market, this limited edition is an ode to the legendary EJ20 boxer engine that debuted on the first-generation Legacy in 1989 and went on to equip a variety of Subaru models, including competition cars in the WRC and the Nürburgring 24 Hours.

As the name clearly states, the WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition also marks the end of production of the famed engine in Japan during this fiscal year. Japanese customers will be able to order the current WRX STI powered by the EJ20 engine until December 23, 2019.

Based on the WRX STI Type S, it brings styling and equipment upgrades that should make it the most desirable WRX STI in Japan. Styling-wise, the EJ20 Final Edition features WRC-inspired gold-painted BBS 19-inch forged aluminum wheels, Cherry Red accents on the front grille and rear bumper, Ultrasuede / leather seats with silver stitching and accents (Recaros at the front), steering wheel wrapped in Ultrasuede, and silver seat belts, among other things.

The EJ20 2.0-liter twin-scroll turbocharged boxer engine delivers 308 PS (304 HP) and 422 Nm (311 lb-ft) of torque, channeled to all four wheels via a six-speed manual transmission. Stopping power is supplied by Brembo 18-inch ventilated disc brakes with 6-piston calipers at the front and 2-piston ones at the rear.

Subaru will only build 555 units (another reference to its past WRC machines) of the WRX STI EJ20 Final Edition, each priced from ¥4,110,000, the equivalent of $37,900 at current exchange rates.
