Could be a last hurrah for the current model

Subaru has announced plans to offer a WRX STI tS Type RA in Japan.

Dressed exclusively in Tangerine Orange Pearl, Satin White Pearl or Blue Mica, the special edition features a front lip spoiler, gloss black accents and door mirrors with integrated LED turn signals. The car is also equipped with sports seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and "tS" branded sill plates.

On the handling front, there's an STI-tuned suspension with revised struts, springs and dampers. Engineers also installed a front tower brace, a quicker steering ratio and Brembo brakes.

If that's not impressive enough, there's an optional NBR (Nürburgring) Challenge Package adds Recaro front seats, a carbon fiber rear spoiler and 18-inch BBS forged aluminum wheels with Bridgestone Potenza RE070 tires.

Production will be limited to 300 units - 200 with the NBR Challenge Package - and pricing starts at ¥4,410,000.
