Based on the WRC Impreza, cornering stability and raw speed were the focal points in developing the STi version. Tamiya's rendition focuses on ease-of-assembly, making it a suitable model for those new to the hobby. The smoothly curved body has been recreated with stunning accuracy, and joins to a single suspension and undersurface piece. Pre-painted gold wheels and calipers can be assembled as-is. Transparent parts with red and orange tints are also included in this kit and do not require painting. Paint colors needed: TS-14 Black, TS-17 Aluminum Silver, TS-26 Pure White, TS-50 Blue Mica, X-11 Chrome Silver, X-18 Semi Gloss Black, X-19 Smoke, X-2 White, X-26 Clear Orange, X-7 Red, XF-1 Flat Black, XF-16 Flat Aluminum, XF-56 Metallic Grey, XF-63 German Grey, and XF-8 Flat Blue.
