With GC8D came the start of the coupé version of the WRX. It is called the WRX Type R. The coupe was chosen by Prodrive for use in the WRC because it was lighter and stiffer than the sedan, although it carried the same exterior dimensions. It was essentially a two-door version of the WRX Type RA meaning it had DCCD, minimal sound insulation, close-gear ratios and hardened gearbox. This car also has a water-spray nozzle to dampen the top of the intercooler. The water will then evaporate, taking heat away from the intercooler and cooling the intake charge. This car was produced on an order-only basis. An estimated 10,000 Type R models were produced for the Japanese Domestic Market.
Benefiting from DCCD control / I/ C water spray / Red top STI engine / Close rack steering / Close ratio group N gearbox / No traction control / No stability control and No ABS.
Equipped with a turbocharged engine, this rally-inspired beast cranks out an exhilarating 206kW and 343Nm of torque. Paired with its legendary all-wheel-drive system, this machine delivers unrivaled performance on every twist and turn.
