The Subaru Impreza WRX STI (GDB-F) was the last GD Impreza model by Subaru.

It was produced from 2006 to 2008. The GDB-F received a new front fascia, which is often called "pignose" or the "Hawkeye" model by car enthusiasts.

Unlike older WRX STI models, it was solely available with the 2.5L EJ257 Flat-4. The DCCD (Subaru Driver Controlled Center Differential) was also updated with this model.

The 2006 Impreza WRX STI was made available Need for Speed: World on June 28, 2010 during the sixth closed beta session as a tier 2 car. Since August 22, 2012, it has been featured as a D class car.

The WRX STI was purchaseable for SpeedBoost, but has been unavailable in the car dealer since August 22, 2012. The in-game cash variant returned as of the January 8, 2013 update with the price of Dollar icon500,000. It has a stock overall rating of 358.

Due to a poor nitrous boost and weak acceleration, that is comparable to that of E class cars, the WRX STI is one of the less effective D class cars for competitive multiplayer races.

Its weaknesses are balanced by a responsive steering; The WRX STI is fast in corners, but not as agile as the Mazda MX-5. Top speed is 148 mph (239 km/h).
