The car uses a 2.0-litre WRC-spec engine with a 75mm intake, a turbocharger that runs at 25psi, with a redline beyond 8500rpm. Peak power is rated at 600hp (450kW) at 8500rpm, with special gearing used to allow the car to hit a top speed of 170mph (288.2km/h) at the ‘Ring in top gear at 8500rpm.

The WRX STI nameplate has a long history with performance Subarus, born out of the company’s iconic rally efforts with the Impreza in the ‘90s. WRX stands for World Rally eXperimental and references road car technology inspired by rallying such as the all-wheel-drive system, while STI means Subaru Tecnica International, the company’s motorsport division.

The ‘RA’ stands for ‘Record Attempt’, a moniker which has been used in the past by Subaru, most notably on a Subaru Legacy which broke the FIA World Speed Endurance Record by driving over 99,758km in 18 days with a top speed of 222km/h.
