Subaru has issued a teaser shot of its eagerly-anticipated new Impreza WRX STI
which debuts at the Tokyo Motor Show on 24 October.
And while the image itself is darkly-lit for a sense of drama, enough is revealed to show the car to be substantially different from the standard model.
Developed by a dedicated team of performance-loving engineers, the new WRX STI features big blistered wheelarches for a ground-hugging stance.
Technical details are still under wraps but the turbocharged range-topper looks set to satisfy Subaruís loyal fan-club.
