Subaru unveils WRX STI NBR Challenge racer

Subaru’s motorsport division has recently pulled the wraps off the new WRX STI NBR Challenge race car, which will compete in the Nurburgring 24 Hour Race.

Subaru’s newest creation is a race car named the WRX STI NBR Challenge, which will be entered in the SP3T class of the Nurburgring 24 Hour Race and it was designed for turbocharged models with an engine displacement of 2.0 liters or even less.

“Subaru Tecnica International Inc. (STI) today announced that they will enter their newly released SUBARU WRX STI in this year’s Nürburgring 24-Hour Race (NBR) -42.ADAC Zurich 24H Rennen. The event will take place from 19 to 22 June in Germany with STI aiming for their 3rd win following 2011 and 2012 in the SP3T”, says the carmaker in its official press release.

As we mentioned above, the new Subaru WRX STI NBR Challenge is taking its power from a 2.0 liter unit, which is developing a total output of 340 HP (250 kW) and 461 Nm (340 lb-ft) of torque, mated to a 6-speed sequential transmission with an STI metal clutch. The racer car is also getting a prominent rear wing, carbon fiber canards, modified bumpers, ventilated hood, lightweight windows, Brembo brakes, track tuned suspension system and 18-inch BBS wheels, wrapped in Dunlop tires.
