A characteristically un-Subaru Subaru, the BRZ STI concept is our first look at the upcoming production sports car, which was co-developed with Toyota.
Painted in typical WR Blue Pearl (the Subie fanboys wouldn't have it any other way), as a concept, and an STI concept, it's a wilder looking version of what we'll expect from the street car that will bow at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show.
With a boxer engine that's low down and front-mid-mounted, the car's center of gravity is already excellent. This concept improves on that, however, with a carbon fiber roof. Until now all the Toyota FT-86 concepts have sported 17-inch wheels, although this car gets 18s, plus a massive rear spoiler and aggressive front splitter.
Subaru will hold a press conference later today to "officially" announce the car. Stay tuned to see if they release any new details then.
