    Subaru STi Heritage

    Subaru Tecnica International (STI)

    In 1988, Fuji Heavy Industries (FHI); now known as Subaru Corporation, established a subsidiary to manage their motorsports activities — the green light was given to Subaru Tecnica International (STI). The subsidiary helped the Subaru World Rally Team (SWRT) capture three consecutive FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) Manufacturers’ Championships (1995-97) and three WRC Drivers’ Championships (1995, 2001 and 2003).

    The official Subaru performance division moved on to develop factory-tuned versions of specific Subaru vehicles, as well as STI parts and accessories for the full model range. Their first vehicle was the 1991 Subaru Legacy STI, a (barely) street legal version of the SWRT car. This car was followed by the Subaru Impreza WRX STI, now an honest-to-goodness automotive icon. Recent projects include the Subaru BRZ GT300, which races in the Super GT Series in Japan, and the ongoing refinement of the Subaru WRX STI that competes in the SP3T class at the 24 Hours Nürburgring race, winning three times.

    For the engineers at STI, who’s behind the wheel is just as important as what’s under the hood. So the focus is on developing exhilarating, precision, high-performance vehicles that are communicative, responsive and easier for the driver to push towards their natural limits.
