Subaru has revealed a pair of 2013 WRX and WRX STI Special Edition models before their launch at 2012 SEMA Show. Both have orange and black Halloween theme making them stand out of the crowd. This orange and black contrast continues inside cabin with seats stitched in orange and with a black headline.

Under the bonnet, both of the Special Edition models remain the same as their ordinary counterparts but the cosmetic tweaks will be enough to drag customers to the showrooms. Subaru is limiting the production of Limited Edition versions to 200 units each. Below is the official press release by Subaru:

2013 SUBARU WRX AND WRX STI SPECIAL EDITIONS DEBUT AT SEMA SHOW

• Subaru launches new “Orange and Black” Special Editions
• Limited run of just 300 vehicles

Las Vegas – Subaru of America, Inc. reveals 2013 Subaru WRX and WRX STI Special Editions at the 2013 SEMA Show. The new models are in keeping with a long tradition of customized Subaru SEMA show cars — and just in time for Halloween. The Special Edition WRX and WRX STI models feature an “Orange and Black” custom paint scheme, with Tangerine Orange paint off-set with jet black custom wheels, black front fender badging and exterior mirrors. The Special Editions cars also receive black exterior graphics.

The Special Edition line-up is limited to just 200 WRX sedans and 100 WRX STI sedans. For a true custom look, the WRX Special Edition features the dark interior trim from the WRX STI, including a black headliner. The Special Edition orange interior is also applied to the stitching on the seats, doors and shift boot, and custom orange trimmed floor mats. The WRX STI also features front fog lamps.

On sale in spring of 2013, the Special Editions spice-up an already potent line up of AWD sports cars. Featuring Subaru BOXER engines, the WRX and WRX STI models develop 265hp and 305hp respectively. Delivering massive bang for the buck, the 2013 WRX Special Edition produces 244 lb.-ft. of peak torque at 4,000 rpm and running through its standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The 2013 WRX STI Special Edition delivers a rally-inspired driving experience with its 305-horsepower turbocharged BOXER engine, six-speed manual transmission and exclusive Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) version of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. The WRX STI is also equipped with Subaru Intelligent Drive (SI-DRIVE) and a Multi-Mode Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) system, the latter featuring a track performance-optimized mode.
