Not to be mistaken with the internationally renowned Tokyo Motor Show that takes place in the fall, January’s Tokyo Auto Salon is a tuning and specialty-equipment oriented event.
Still, Subaru treats it with the proper diligence, getting ready to unveil three new concepts. The first, the Legacy B4 Blitzen concept will come in a Premium Red finish and with a rear spoiler that “evokes powerful driving performance.” It also has a premium interior finish, beige leather, piano black trim and body color accents. Next up are the XV Sport Concept and Levorg S Concept that got a complete tuning makeover from Subaru Tecnica International Inc.
The XV Sport comes with a vivid “Sunrise Yellow” color scheme, coupled with a lower ride height and yellow striped spoilers that contrast with the black colored grille and wheels. The all-black interior has matching yellow stitches. The Levorg S Concept is, according to Subaru, the embodiment of the “S series”, with the STI tuned flagship seen in its “Sports Tourer” styling. STI opted to modify a wide range of parts, such as the intake and exhaust, 6 speed manual transmission and the 2.0-liter Horizontally-Opposed direct injection turbo “DIT” engine – all coming next to the usual chassis and body performance enhancements.
