Subaru was not afraid of elaborately named special editions
Let’s skip past all the ones we can name off the top of our heads and get to the wordy motherlode: the Impreza WRX STI Spec C RA-R. Yep, that’s the name of just one car, and if you wanted to write the whole thing out, it’d be (deepest of breaths now) the following:
World Rally eXperimental Subaru Tecnica International Specification Competition Record Attempt – Radical.
The RA was a stripped-out version for the Japanese market, with air conditioning, power windows and anti-lock brakes all left on the shelf at the factory. The Spec C, on the other hand, denoted an even more stripped-out WRX STI, with thinner glass, lightweight panels and a distinct absence of soundproofing or stereo. To drill down any deeper would be like putting a hat on a hat – or, in this case, an anorak on an anorak.
