Subaru’s South African division has celebrated the 30th anniversary of STI with this special edition. It is called the WRX STI Diamond Edition, and you probably can’t have it.

You also won’t get a 0-100kph time of 5.03sec—seven-tenths faster than the standard WRX STI available in South Africa—or a quarter-mile time of 13.7sec and top speed of 254kph.

Other goodies include Brembo calipiers, 20mm spaces for a wider stance, an STI engine brace, and a yellow spoiler kit that runs the front splitter, side skirts, and rear diffuser.

Nice.
