2015 Subaru WRX STI Revealed in Leaked Official Images [HD Photo Update]

As you probably know, Subaru will debut the all-new WRX STI at the Detroit Auto Show next week, and this can only mean it’s time for…photo leaks. The first official images surfaced originally on Mexican website Autos.Terra (and then popped up elsewhere too) and they show us the WRX STI wearing the legendary blue paint golden wheels scheme.

Based on the 2015 Subaru WRX, the STI features visual upgrades including a huge rear wing, golden wheels and gray bars in the front grille. The rest of the aerodynamic kit looks very similar (if not identical) to the WRX.

There’s no information on the engine, but the new WRX STI should boast considerably more power than the WRX, which is powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged petrol engine producing 268 horsepower. While some may expect the STI to feature an upgraded version of this engine, according to a leaked dealer spec sheet, Subaru will fit its performance sedan with the same 2.5-liter turbocharged unit from the previous model – obviously with a power upgrade that should take it upwards of 300 hp.

According to the report, Subaru will offer a first edition of the WRX in the exclusive World Rally Blue combined with the golden alloy wheels. Until official information is released, we can only check out the photos. While the design is not as dramatic as the WRX Concept‘s, the new Subaru WRX STI certainly looks as an STI should.
