But there’s a catch.

As a turn-key rallyvehicle, the STI NR4 has a full roll cage, Sparco fiberglass bucket seats withsix-point harnesses, a three-spoke steering wheel and two fireextinguishers.

The second is that these will not be available at dealerships. Subaru has putrace shops in charge of assembling the vehicle, such as JRM in the United Kingdom.
