Subaru’s high-performance division will bring some excitement at the upcoming Tokyo Auto Salon by displaying three STI concepts.
Subaru owner, Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd, together with Subaru Tecnica International performance division, has just announced it will attend the upcoming Tokyo Auto Salon 2016. And to prove that its intentions are serious for the Show, three STI concepts will be ready to be admired on the Subaru booth. From the trio, only one of them is known to us, as the STI Performance Concept has been previously displayed at the 2015 New York Auto Show. Featuring STI technologies and components including STI suspension and brake enhancements, as well as other exterior and interior upgrades, the concept is basically the ultimate road-going version of the popular BRZ. To signify the division’s commitment to motor sports, it employs the STI-tuned EJ20 horizontally-opposed 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo racing engine currently used for the Super GT race in Japan.
The second surprise from Subaru is the “WR Blue Pearl” colored Levorg STI Concept that features exclusive front fascia with STI-designed 18-inch aluminum wheels. Levorg is based on the wagon that Subaru sells in Japan and Europe and has red-wine and black two-tone color interior. At the Tokyo Auto Salon, the automaker will also display the XV Hybrid STI Concept with orange-colored accents on “Quarts White Silica” exterior color and with orange and beige interior accents. For Subaru’s booth to be a truly eye-catching one, some race models are also to be seen: Subaru BRZ GT300 2016, WRX STI NBR Challenge 2016, WRX STI for Japan Rally Championship and CG Robot Racing 2016 Subaru BRZ.
