Subaru has released its much talked about Liberty GT limited edition...

Subaru has released a special limited edition version of its turbocharged Liberty GT. The (we'll call it the GT-STI here on in...) is available from January 1, 2006. Just 300 of the modified and upgraded flagship Libertys will be produced.

Expected to be eagerly snapped up by Subaru fans, the GT-STI will be available in wagon and sedan body styles and both five-speed manual and five-speed SPORTSHIFT automatic versions.

Although offered in a choice of three colours only two are still available Brilliant Silver and Urban Grey -- both with silver STI alloy wheels. The other other colour, Obsidian Black with charcoal wheels, is already sold out.
