The Subaru Forester, a name rarely spoken around the spectrum of car enthusiasts. I mean, lets be honest, this car sits three feet off the ground from the factory, comes with standard fog lights and roof racks, clearly not a sign of a car enthusiast’s dream. But like they always say, there’s always an exception, right?
YES. And it goes by three letters. STi.
Now as we all know, any models that Subaru Technica International touches on is packed with performance upgrades and enhancements, this holds true for the Forester STi as well. Straight out of the factory, the Forester STi is packing upwards of 320BHP, which is incredibly impressive considering it is still a crossover wagon. But in many cases, factory spec is just not enough. Enter specimen below.

Now THIS looks nothing like a standard Forester.
Lowered on Aragosta suspension and 19 inch Advan RS, this Forester is definitely meant for something other than off-roading and grocery getting.
But the real magic of this car is under the hood where you’re feasted with a host of HKS upgrades.
Of course the centerpiece of the whole engine bay is definitely the rotated HKS GT3040 turbocharger.
And finally, the very subtle interior with minimal upgrades to keep comfort levels at its maximum.
