Those who manage to get their hands on the S209 will be very lucky and I'm sure they'll enjoy it (if they drive it). I know that it's not as simple as a direct currency conversion, but for the S208...

The S208 is limited to Japan only. Subaru will produce just 450 units, 350 of which will be NBR Challenge-optioned cars. Furthermore, since demand is so high, Subaru's set up a Lottery system on the car's website for people to enter to get the privilege to purchase one.
And for the very limited 380 hp STI TC 380:

We're just lucky enough to get the US mark-up edition I'm sure it has to do with import taxes & fees, certifications, extra safety & emissions regulations, etc... But $20k more than the S208?
