Subaru Impreza WRX STI has been a popular name in the automotive world for almost thirty years now. The combination of characters ensures high performance on all surfaces, just like a real assembly car.

“We are pleased with [STI Performance] launch packs [van de WRX], but when it comes to future plans, we have to be careful. It’s not ‘no’ “.
