Subaru Forester STi Edition

The outstanding Subaru Forester has just become much more desirable as it’s been given the STi treatment by the company.

But you can’t have it! Because it is a Japan-only model and even if you are prepared to move there in order to get one, you might not have great chance as it’s limited to only 300 units.

It comes with STi sports seats, steering wheel, sport pedals and navigation system as well as a red starter button to cheer you up! It is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine delivering 263 bhp.
