Offered exclusively in Japan and revealed at the Tokyo motor show, the car gets a stiffened-up chassis with V-braces and beefed-up rear suspension mount points.
Subaru said the changes make the car more responsive to steering inputs and reduce roll. Sachs dampers with bespoke settings and new 18in wheels have also been added.
The 1250kg car is offered in a unique grey khaki colour that’s limited to 100 units. It also gets a red and black colour scheme inside.
No changes have been made to the car's flat-four boxer engine, so the atmospheric unit puts out the same 197bhp and drives the back wheels through a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic gearbox.
