The debut of Subaru WRX Concept in New York
Subaru has built its name on the race track through victories in the world of rally, wrote memorable pages of history with the unforgettable Colin McRae and the Impreza in an unmistakable metallic blue that characterizes the House of Pleiades which has become a true icon for enthusiasts. At the New York Auto Show the Japanese showed a concept that revisits the Subaru in a modern way complete with a reference to the competitions because of the unmistakable livery WR Blue Pearl III. Certainly, compared to Impreza it’s more peppery and the look is much more futuristic but the characteristic elements are all there.

So here we find the 4 door body, the hexagonal grille, the air intake on the bonnet and 4 exhausts coming out under the rear bumper. Of course, this concept called the WRX with a little imagination is shorter, wider, lower and in a word, more sporty.

In fact, to find what makes this precious we should take a look at the roof made of carbon fiber, the 20 inch wheels with 245/40 tires and the brake calipers with a spectacular fluorescent yellow colored the same way as the logos and finish of the exhaust pipes.

Specifications are still unknown so I reserve the absolute power of the engine but it is clear from the architecture that it will be a boxer and will be equipped with a turbocharger. By the time the future of this car is decided and it goes into production it could turn out to be a model that by itself leaves behind a historic name like Impreza.
