It's not much crazier than the S207 before it, but the US still can't have it, and that makes us sad.
Two years ago, Subaru unveiled its hopped-up STI S207 at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show.
The S208 builds on the success of the S207.
Subaru made sure to include improvements to the car's performance, and its center of gravity is a bit lower, as well.
Under the hood is a modified version of the Japanese STI's 2.0-liter flat-four engine, putting out about 324 horsepower.
As with the S207 before it, the S208 features a faster steering rack, torque vectoring, Bilstein dampers and Brembo brakes.
A paddle on the steering wheel lets the owner spray the intercooler with a temperature-reducing mist.
If that's not enough for you, there's a NBR Challenge package that pays homage to Subaru's efforts on the Nürburgring.
If demand goes beyond the number of vehicles in production, everyone will be thrust into a lottery system to figure out who gets one.
While a base STI starts at ¥3,866,400 (roughly $34,000) in Japan, the S208 starts at a hefty ¥5,800,000 ($51,000).
