CARROSSER Co. Ltd. (Gunma Prefecture, Japan ) CEO Tsutomu Nagase; official announcement for the recent acquisition of the USDM spec 2015 Subaru WRX STI for product research and development purposes.
Following the vehicle release from Subaru of America, Inc. this R&D test chassis had been immediately acquired through Cusco USA Inc, a direct subsidiary of Carrosser Japan, and without delay shipped off to headquarters via ocean freight. The executive decision had been made in view of the fact that a left hand drive spec is essential for the basis of product fitment for compliance with global vehicle applications.
As of today, Carrosser engineers have already commenced the R&D process with trademark Cusco products such as suspension coilovers, strut tower bars, and suspension components to name the least. Products from previous generation Subaru models have already been confirmed for fitment and more new and exciting components are being developed at this very moment.
As a competition rally vehicle project, the 2015 Cusco Subaru WRX STI is projected to make its debut on or near September of this year in the FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championships (APRC) Rally Hokkaido round. The class and the drivers assigned are still yet to be determined.
Carrosser Co. Ltd. will continue to develop high performance automobile racing products for the latest vehicles on the market, and to support the motorsports industry in which we are actively participating in. Our objective is to develop your enjoyment of driving through motorsports.
