Shots of the new Subaru WRX STI have ‘leaked’ online before the car’s official unveil at Detroit next week.
Sporting traditional blue paint, gold wheels and a giant rear wing, sadly we’ll have to wait for official performance and price details.
Expected to be powered by 2.5-litre turbo four - unlike the standard WRX which gets a 2.0-litre unit - power should be around the 225kW mark.
