Subaru Australia has released the aptly named WRX STI EJ25 Final Edition, with the limited-run sports sedan the last of the fourth-generation line.
Based on the current WRX STI’s spec.R flagship, the EJ25 Final Edition is priced from $62,440 plus on-road costs and restricted to just 75 examples, 30 of which will be sold online, while the remaining 45 will find homes via 24 of Subaru Australia’s dealers.
For the $3000 premium the EJ25 Final Edition commands, buyers are compensated with the addition of an ‘EJ25 Final Edition’ engine plate, a pink grille pinstripe, gold 19-inch BBS forged alloy wheels, silver Brembo brake callipers with ‘STI’ logos, and an ‘EJ25 Final Edition’ rear badge as well as black versions of the front fender inserts, side-mirror caps, shark-fin antenna and rear ‘WRX’ badge.
Inside, an Ultrasuede-trimmed sports steering wheel, front Recaro bucket seats, silver seatbelts, a red ‘STI’ push-start button, silver stitching, carbon-fibre-style trim and a numbered ‘EJ25 Final Edition’ build plate feature.
Three paintwork options are available for the Volkswagen Golf R rival, including WR Blue Peal (50 units), Crystal White Pearl (15) and Crystal Black Silica (10).

As its name suggests, the EJ25 Final Edition is the last WRX STI to be motivated by the ‘EJ25’ 2.5-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, with it producing 221kW of power and 407Nm of torque.
As reported, the fifth-generation WRX STI is due to be revealed early next year, with it all but confirmed to use a new 2.4-litre unit, dubbed FA24, with outputs of about 300kW and 500Nm heavily rumoured, so stayed tuned.
