2013 SUBARU 335 HP WRX STI 340R

by SpeedLux

Subaru frequently prepares spicier, faster versions of its WRX and WRX STI performance cars for Japan and Europe — but not the U.S. — and the latest model is no different. The new WRX STI 340R goes on sale in the U.K. next month alongside the existing WRX STI 320R.

The new model joins Europe’s existing WRX STI 320R, which offers 315 hp and 332 lb-ft, as well as the standard European STI which is rated for 296 hp and 300 lb-ft. Sadly, the U.S. won’t receive this upgraded version of the Subaru performance car.

The new 2013 SUBARU WRX STI 340R is based on the standard WRX STI model, the 340R boasts a revised ECU tuning,intake improvements and a lower-restriction sports exhaust system, the turbocharged 2.5-liter flat-four engine’s power bumping to 340 horsepower and 361 lb-ft of torque – improvements of 40 and 61, respectively.

Subaru says the WRX STI 340R can scoot from 0 to 60 in just 4.7 seconds.. The car also makes 361 pound-feet of torque, a gain of 71 pound-feet over U.S. models.

Current WRX STI owners will also be able to upgrade their cars to 340R-spec. Subaru says the upgrades can be applied retroactively without affecting a car’s warranty.

In the U.S., buying a Subaru WRX STI will set you back around $35,000 before you start adding options. In the U.K., the least expensive WRX STI starts at £26,995 ($42,690), while stepping up to the 340R will run you £28,594 ($45,219).

The WRX STI is an exciting car,with a improved power and torque!
