For an additional $1,000 donation to the Australian Road Safety Foundation, which is supported by Subaru Australia, online buyers will have the option of an individualised delivery experience, where Subaru rally drivers Molly Taylor, Cody Crocker, Mark Stacey, or Dean Herridge can hand-over the vehicle at their home or office location. The choice of rally driver will be determined by the customer’s location, with city and state taken into consideration.
“We’re getting towards the last in line for fourth gen STI, which has served us so well since launch in 2014, said Subaru Australia General Manager, Blair Read. “It’s the car that underpinned Molly Taylor’s 2016 win in the Australian Rally Championship, which is an indication of its fantastic credentials as a capable performance car.
“This final edition pays tribute to an engine and chassis combo that have earned their stripes in both competition and on road as an adrenaline-pumping, fun drive.”
