The official launch of the WRX RS40 in Australia has been recently announced by Subaru, where the model will set you back for 44,490 AUD.

According to the Japanese based automaker, the new Subaru WRX RS40 has been designed to celebrate the company’s 40th anniversary in Australia and the model in question has received some interesting updates which should make it more appealing to its future customers. From these “goodies”, we can mention the WR blue exterior, the special badging, the STI front and rear spoiler, the strut tower brace and the 17-inch alloy wheels finished in gold.

The cabin of the Subaru WRX RS40 has received some updates too, even if they are limited, like the Recaro sports seats with Blue Alcantara inserts, the individually numbered plaque, the short-throw shifter and some other tweaks. Power to the model is being provided by a 2.5 liter boxer turbocharged engine, which is producing a total output of 265 HP (195 kW) and 343 Nm of torque (252 lb-ft). The Subaru WRX RS40 will be produced in just 300 units and each one will cost 44,490 AUD. The model should become available for order soon.
