Walking around the NYIAS, I spotted something Subaru will be uncovering later today. We know nothing about specs or what resides under the hood. Carbon roof. Carbon mirrors. Shopping cart wing (Carbon). Matte paint. Cool new LED headlights. We will update this post later today after the Subaru press conference.

Update: The concept was to introduce the STI brand to the US. Subaru will bring more STI models and will be selling a huge STI parts catalogue in the US (they said US and not North America). JDM parts will no longer be JDM and should be available at US dealers. No specs on the concept other than saying the wing was functional and it was a balanced car. The engine is out of their GT300 race car (not rally).

Update 2: Hidden under the front bumper is an FMIC. The engine is estimated to make 450hp. With all the carbon on the car, I would expect it is very quick (due to lightness) and likely handles like it is on rails. Smaller details like the headlight, race widget screen and aluminium door handles (with the STI logo etched into it) are now in the gallery.
