Twenty years since the original turbocharged Impreza WRX went on sale in Japan, Subaru Australia has launched the last of its current generation WRX special editions, the RS40.

WRX RS40 will be in showrooms from the end of August.

Priced at $44,490*, the all-wheel drive WRX RS40 adds more than $7,000 of value-packed features that pay tribute to Subaru’s motor sport heritage.

The features include the combination of WR blue mica paint, gold-coloured 17-inch alloy wheels and a variety of Subaru Tecnica International (STI) components - a clear reminder of the brand’s local and international rallying success.

Subaru Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “This feature-packed special edition makes a direct visual link to the original World Rally Blue WRXs that did so much to grow Subaru’s performance credentials globally.”

“WR Blue remains a customer favourite colour in the WRX palette, so it’s entirely fitting that this last-in-line special edition of the current car carries the famous blue and gold combination.”

Our story on the WRX Concept which debuted earlier this year is still available to review. When additional information becomes available, Next Car will publish details on the new Subaru Impreza WRX.
