A limited-edition Subaru WRX Club Spec – based on the current generation model – has been revealed, with the manufacturer’s Australian distributor announcing 150 cars will be available nationwide.

As with the standard WRX, the vehicle is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged "boxer" engine producing 197kW and 350Nm.

It will be kitted out with Recaro bucket seats, Red Brembo brake callipers (on the manual variant only), a Harman Kardon speaker system, a “carbon design” instrument panel, crystal black highlights, and Club Spec limited edition badging.

It will also have the microfibre steering wheel and 18” alloy wheels from the more expensive WRX STI.

Unlike previous limited run WRX cars, including the 2012 Club Spec, this edition is not fitted with a rear spoiler.

The STI, STI premium, and STI spec.R are currently the only WRX variants to feature aerodynamic packages.

The entry level Subaru WRX currently starts at $40,490 (plus on road costs).
