If your ride stands out in white, you know you’ve picked a looker. This is why we’re such big fans of Subaru’s latest limited-edition release, the ‘Series.WhiteWRX and WRX STI.

As the name suggests, both vehicles flaunt a stunning Ceramic White exterior paint finish.

There’s more here than a handful of aesthetic alterations, though. The less powerful WRX gets a performance package that includes Ultrasuede-trimmed Recaro seats, Brembo brakes, and a high-performance Bilstein sport-tuned suspension. The STI version boasts sticky Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, a Bilstein STI sport-tuned suspension, and Ultrasuede seats with Carbon Black leather bolsters.

Of course, both cars are AWD and pack potent boxer engines: The WRX comes with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder capable of 268hp and 350Nm, and the WRX STI is powered by a 2.5-liter turbo’s 310hp and 393Nm. Both are mated to six-speed manual transmissions.

Do you dig seeing performance beasts in white, or would you rather see them in more playful Rally Red or Electric Blue finishes?
