Right on the outskirts of Tokyo, roughly an hour away by train, you can find in an unassuming and quiet suburb the headquarters of one of the most revered three-letter combinations in all of motoring: STi. For any diehard Subaru fan, a pilgrimage to the gallery at their headquarters in Mitaka is a must. Never …

A few months ago, the Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special had set the Nurburgring lap record for sedans and Subaru chose to keep the video to itself until recently. Back in July, the Subaru WRX STI Type RA NBR Special had claimed the record for the fastest sedan around the Nurburgring. With a …
