Detroit, MI – January 14, 2019 – Subaru Tecnica International (STI), subsidiary of Subaru Corporation, today presented its limited edition STI S209, the first S-line STI product exclusively produced for the US market. As a line S product, the STI S209 includes power, handling, aerodynamics and driver control updates, and
He suffers final assembly in Kiryu, Japan, where he receives modifications of motors and alterations of the body that, in total, require that it has been approved by the USA for STI; Therefore, the S209 is considered the first "Subaru built by STI" sold in the US. The S209 has a high performance tradition that dates from the models built by STI that were exclusive to the Japanese national market: the 2000 S201 until 2018 S208.
Designed with a high performance driving approach, the S209 inspires and conveys technology from the most formidable STI track machine: the WRX STI Nürburgring Challenge, which won the SP3T class at the 24 Hours of the Nürburgring of the 2018, the SP3T class to the tough race of resistance. The S209, like the car of the Nürburgring Challenge competition, carries out expanded body-wide expanded treatment, which extends the overall width of the vehicle to 72.4 inches, or 1.7 inches more than a standard WI-STI . The defensive defenses allow you to adapt to the wider front / rear tracks (+ 0.6 at the front / rear) and the summer tires of 265/35 Dunlop GT600A wrapped around lightweight alloy wheels Forged BBS of 19 x 9 inches. The totally new tires, developed exclusively for the S209 for Dunlop, are a great contributor to the maxillary lateral grip of the car of more than 1.0 g. The front fender respirators provide additional cooling of the engine, while the rear fenders adjust the air turbulence to reduce the drag. The Brembo brakes, with perforated steel rotors and 2-piston monobloc single-piston monobloc front pinzas and 2-piston rear-mounted clamps, provide a strong braking force, thanks in part to high friction bearings that provide improved unlocked resistance.
Under the broadest body of the S209, the Bilstein® shock absorbers, the rigid spiral springs, the 20 mm rear stabilizer bar and the pillow type bearings are specially developed for the front / rear lateral links. The S209 incorporates reinforcements for the front and rear crossmember subcams and, at the Nurburgring carriage, a front-strut flexible bar and flexible front / back rigid. The flexible toothbar, unlike a conventional rigid bar, is divided and joins with a pillow ball joint in the center to be mobile longitudinally, while helping to tighten the body of the car laterally. The result is the optimal tire grip during the lateral moments combined with a conforming mount during the longitudinal moments. Meanwhile, the drawing rigidizers apply tension between the body and the crossed member to optimize the flexion of the chassis, improving the stability at the time of crowning and offering a better response, handling and direction. Another Nürburgring racing technology that goes down to the S209: front, rear and side under spoilers; front bumper panels; and carbon fiber ceiling panel and rear wing.
A completely reformed version of the legendary 2.5 liter turbocharged EJ25 engine with the BOXER motor drives the S209. With a STI turbocompressor manufactured by HKS®, the EJ25 has an estimated power of 341 hp, thanks in part to a larger turbine and compressor (up to 6 and 8%, respectively, compared to WRX STI ), as well as the maximum impulse pressure that has been increased to 18.0 psi (16.2 psi for WRX STI). With a serial S209 serial plate proud, the improved BOXER engine uses forged pistons and connecting rods that are lighter and stronger. The midrange pair also becomes remarkable, 10 percent at 3,600 rpm, which provides higher corner exit speeds at the time of driving along the way.
To achieve final driver control, the S209 comes exclusively with a 6-speed manual transmission of close relationship that directs the power to a full-track SUV with Subaru Symmetrical with front / rear front slip differentials, a driver differentiated from the Controlled center (DCCD), Active Torque Vectoring and Multi Mode Dynamics Vehicle control. A recalibrated SI-Drive system offers three ways: smart (I) for a better fuel economy and smoother power control; Sport (S) for an energy balance optimized between response and control; and Sport Sharp (S #) to achieve the best acceleration time. STI engineers recommend Sport over Sport Sharp for driving circuits, since the map of the least aggressive accelerator allows more control of the driver.
To fuel more air in the EJ25, the S209 uses a high-traffic input system with a new inlet conduit, induction box with air filter Conical, silicone turbo input duct and, in accordance with the WI-STI 2004-07, an intercooler water spray system that reduces the temperature of the intercooler through manual direction levers. More air demands more fuel, so that the S209 receives a new high-flow fuel pump, larger fuel injectors and a motor control module tuned to STI. High-performance silencers offer 17 percent less air flow resistance and emit approximately 4.1 pounds. Finally, the largest hand-held stainless steel drainage tips, with a diameter of 101 mm, offer aggressive and acoustic aspects.
The S209 receives multiple adjustments to raise it in other STI sedans. An STI card replaces the traditional Subaru star cluster at the center of the D-shaped steering wheel, which is wrapped in Ultrasuede® with silver seams, a treatment that carries the cover of the storage box of the central console A series S209 standard badge is located in the center console and the S209 badges adorn the passenger's side panel and the seats on the Recaro® front seats, which contain new silver inserts. On the outside, adhere special S209 badges to the front grille and defenses, as well as the rear coating.
Only around 200 units of the S209 STI will be built, exclusively for the combinations of outdoor color wheels / BBS available in the U., which will be WR Blue Pearl / gray wheels and Crystal White Pearl / wheels of # 39; or. Prices will be announced closer to the sale date by the end of 2019.
