That thing has a rollcage, STI 6-pots, and Recaros? Very nice! Cool parts, but it's still fugly, but it is better the the new wrx, which isn't saying much. They didn't do much to cover it up. I wonder why they're testing it with a cage, doesn't seem the best way to sort out the stock suspension.

... I bet it also has an EJ20 in it.

This is almost definitely a JDM STi, guys... they've ALWAYS gotten better seats, more agressive suspension, etc. Don't expect little nuances like that to make it on our side of the Ocean... still, it's great to see a damn-close-to-production shot. The fenders look awesome, and the wing / spoiler is perfect.

That's a damn good looking car.

NINJA EDIT: Rob Theory! Could this be a WRC or some other form of race vehicle? They might be testing out a suspension setup for a tarmac rally, etc. That would explain the seats, roll cage, way too low for stock ride height, and brakes... can anyone recognize the tires? If they're BF Goodrich R-Compounds, I've got more evidence of WRC test car

NINJA EDIT #2: I enhanced ("enhance... enhance") it a bit, and it looks like the tires are RE-070s. There goes that theory! *quietly backs away from thread...

I like it front the front, I like the body line that flows from the under the grill and over the front fenders, other wise it looks like an uglier version of the ford focus st.




Maybe they're testing a new WRX STI Ver. 10 spec-c type RA-R setup.

... Somehow I don't think the car is going to come ANYWHERE with a roll cage from the factory.
