Here's the Subaru Forester Ultimate Customized Kit Special


Motor Image came out with a one-of-a-kind tuner special featuring the Forester SUV. The name? The Forester Ultimate Customized Kit Special or FUCKS Edition. No kidding.

Anyway, it reads like the lovechild of the Forester and the WRX STI. It gets the iconic WR Blue exterior color with red accents (it’s a wrap), the WRX STI’s 6-pot / 2-pot Brembo brakes, a lowered suspension that removes all sense of off-roading capability, the full STI body kit, and 20-inch Enkei wheels shod with Yokohama 245/40 R 20 tires. Open the front doors and the Subaru logo projects onto the floor. Again, no kidding.



Inside, it plays to Hugh Hefner’s fetishes with black suede covering the steering wheel, dashboard, and door trims. The standard seats though have been replaced by the one-piece sport seats from the previous WRX STI. Other mods include a truck-mounted subwoofer playing tunes through its touchscreen audio screen.

Mechanically, the Forester FUCKS Edition keeps the same 2.0-liter Boxer-4 found in the standard Forester (at least based on the engine cover), but it does get an STI muffler which should be good for, maybe, a handful of more horsepower?



Motor Image has no plans of selling the Forester FUCKS Edition any time soon, but at least it shows Subaru (or at least its distributor, Motor Image) does have a sense of humor. And yeah, okay, it also shows a bit of their motorsports heritage too. Either way, it’s a good way of at least attracting a bit of interest in an otherwise subdued show.
