The Impreza WRX STI Type R was introduced in 1997 and is a 2-door coupe and features several rally homologation features. Not limited edition but one of just 1734 produced. This is the vehicle that Prodrive used for its Group N customer cars and also the donor vehicle for the Group A WRC in 1997, 98, 99 and 2000. The two-door body is slightly stronger / stiffer than the 4-door RA. The differences between the Type R and the STi 4-door JDM models are:
  • 2-door bodywork
  • Short-ratio gearbox
  • Adjustable electromechanical center differential (DCCD)
  • No ABS
  • Intercooler water spray
  • Rear brake caliper with double opposed piston (the other versions have the rear with single piston)
  • Rear tinted windows

The gear ratios of the Type R and Type RA are much shorter than those of the standard STi. The Type R introduced in 1997 was also the first Impreza STi to have a high rear spoiler and matching side skirts. Standard STI models only got the larger spoiler and coded side skirts the following year.
