VIDEO: Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special Goes Sub-Seven at Nürburgring

Subaru of America has released a new video of the Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special with driver Richie Stanaway setting a new lap record for a four-door sedan at the famous 12.8-mile Nürburgring Nordschleife race track, achieving a time of 6:57.5. The WRX STI Type RA NBR Special is a Prodrive-built time attack car based on a stock 2017 WRX STI with a full roll cage welded into the standard WRX STI unibody for added strength and stiffness. It has a modified 2.0-liter Subaru WRC-spec boxer motor and Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. It uses a 75-mm intake, and the turbo runs at 25 psi of boost. This produces more than 600 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and the NBR Special reached a top speed of 179 mph at 8,500 rpm.
