The Subaru STI Performance Concept is the newest model to the signed by the Japanese company and it has been officially unveiled at the 2015 New York Auto Show.
The leaked “mysterious” Subaru BRZ from just a day ago has turned out to be called the Subaru STI Performance and to be nothing more than a simple concept car. The model in question is basically the ultimate road-going version of the popular BRZ and it has received a more aggressive and wider body, with flared wheel arches, beefier side skirts and some extra cooling for the engine.
“At STI we know from our racing that to win, it is important not only to have high power, but also that all aspects of performance are balanced over the whole car. When we achieve this balance, the driver feels that the car is easy to handle and reliable, and he can use it fully to the limits of its performance. Our plan is to produce cars and accessories that drivers can really enjoy”, said the president of Subaru Tecnica International, Yoshio Hirakawa.
The new Subaru STI Performance Concept has received the 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder boxer engine under its hood, but this has been turbocharged and it has been sourced from the BRZ GT300. We are not sure how much this is producing on the concept but the racer is good for 300 HP (224 kW) and 447 Nm (330 lb-ft) of torque. Besides the unit, the chassis, suspension system and several other components have been borrowed from the racer too. No production version has been announced at this time.
