Subaru WRX & BRZ Hyper editions coming

Australia to receive Hyper Blue Subaru WRX & BRZ

Like Ferrari and red, blue has been an icon of sorts for Subaru. And now for Australia, it’s poised to go hyper.

Subaru Australia has announced it will paint 300 cars in limited edition Hyper Blue paint before they arrive down under.

The paint, which is decidedly brighter than the firm’s well known World Rally hue, will be thrown on 200 WRX Premium, 50 WRX STI Premium and 50 BRZ models.

But there is a caveat for each, as Hyper Blue WRX Premium models will be automatic only, the WRX STI Premium manual only, and BRZs equipped with an option pack that includes heated leather and alcantara seats.

As photos show, US-spec Hyper Blue special editions match their paint to black finish alloys. They also score model unique blue stitching on seats, steering wheel, floor mats, and shifter boot.

Gloss black badges and black exterior mirrors continue the theme; meanwhile no mechanical changes have been made to the American Hyper Blue editions.

Whether local models will receive the same treatment, and at what price, is not yet known. Subaru saying it will reveal local specification and pricing when the vehicles are launched on October 1.
