Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special

Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR SpecialThe Type RA NBR Special set a new lap record for a four-door saloon over the 20.8-kilometre circuit, breaking the 7 minute mark with a time of 6:57.5. The time is just 0.5sec slower than that achieved by a Porsche 918 Spyder and 12sec slower than the fastest vehicle, the Next Nio EP9 electric supercar.

It’s running 250psi of boost and sucks air through a 75mm intake. Thanks to an incredibly advanced WRC-spec gearbox modified to be used with paddle-shifters, it can swap cogs in a mind-boggling 20-25 milliseconds. That’s quite quick.

The purpose built model uses 9-inch fat slick tires all around and featured a redesigned aero package for better handling and lower drag for a higher top speed. The whole package is claimed to produce 295 kilogrammes of downforce and also has active rear aerodynamics similar to a Formula 1 car, albeit, with no restrictions on when the driver may or may not chose to open or close the wing.

The design includes a Drag Reduction System rear wing similar to the technology found in F1 cars. With its combined electric and hydraulic operation, the wing can deploy for full downforce/drag under braking or in fast turns and then open for less downforce/drag on long straights. The driver has full control of the DRS via a steering wheel mounted control taking less than 20 milliseconds to change position fully.
