Cherry Hill, N.J., - Subaru of America, Inc. today announced pricing for the 2013 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Special Editions. The Subaru WRX Special Edition Sedan has an MSRP of $28,795 – an additional $500 compared to the WRX Premium. The Subaru WRX STI Special Edition Sedan has an MSRP of $34,795, also an increase of $500 compared to the WRX STI.

The Special Edition WRX and WRX STI models feature an "Orange and Black" custom paint scheme, with Tangerine Orange Pearl paint off-set with jet black custom wheels, black front fender badging and exterior mirrors. The Special Editions cars also receive black exterior graphics.

The Special Edition line-up is limited to just 200 WRX sedans and 100 WRX STI sedans. For a true custom look, the WRX Special Edition features the dark interior trim from the WRX STI, including a black headliner. The Special Edition orange interior is also applied to the stitching on the seats, doors and shift boot, and custom orange trimmed floor mats. Both vehicles also feature front fog lamps.

On sale in spring of 2013, the Special Editions spice-up an already potent line up of AWD sports cars. Featuring Subaru BOXER engines, the WRX and WRX STI models develop 265hp and 305hp respectively. Delivering massive bang for the buck, the 2013 WRX Special Edition produces 244 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,000 rpm and running through its standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The 2013 WRX STI Special Edition delivers a rally-inspired driving experience with its 305-horsepower turbocharged BOXER engine, six-speed manual transmission and exclusive Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) version of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The WRX STI is also equipped with Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) and a Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system, the latter featuring a track performance-optimized mode.

      I've wanted one of these things forever, but this styling looks ridiculously frumpy and outdated. The next gen WRX cannot come soon enough.

      I've seen orange look good on a car, but this is certainly not one of them. Wow, is that an ugly orangish brown puke color. Not to mention the whole design looks like it came from the 90's.

        My son just bought one. It's not as bad as I thought it would be. More tangerine than bright orange.

      Man, Subaru must be letting the engineers design the cars now, because they just keep getting uglier and uglier. I had an 03 WRX wagon, which was a little funky looking but nowhere near as bad as this.

      I\'d seriously consider one of these bad boys, but gee, they just didn\'t hit this thing \'side the fender with the ugly stick... they practically beat it to death. Come on Subaru, we know you\'ve got some style in there somewhere, the BRZ is fairly ok looking. Why not spread the love?

        Toyota Designed the BRZ/FR-S/GT-86/FT-86, Subaru did the Mechanical stuff, minus Toyotas Direct Injection technology.

      If this was a copper color I could see this really looking brilliant !!! But putting this color on the special edition tells me changes should be made at Subaru !!! Then charging $500 EXTRA for this ugly paint job ? Really Subaru ?

      This car needs to be replaced, I actually want to buy one but I just thought it looked too old, and the interior/mpg were not good. Hopefully the new one gets the 2.0t from the Forrester, 250/258 hp/trq and 23/28 (in the bigger Forrester) on regular gas would be very nice.

      Yukko, Sue-Bah-Ruuuuuh. Can an automaker be any more clueless in the automotive body design department? Why is this OK to people that love Sue-Bah-Ruuuuuh?
