Subaru has given the Viziv Concept a more aggressive stance, and probably some changes beneath the skin, as they’re now going to unveil it at the 2018 Tokyo Auto Salon, later this week.
Named Subaru Viziv Performance STI Concept, it features a more aggressive front end, a muscular hood, wide wheel arches, large rear wing, red accents, and an ‘STI’ badge on the front grille.
It’s unknown at the moment what engine it carries, but since it’s expected to preview the next generation WRX STI, which is due in a few years, it’s likely powered by a new boxer engine, smaller than the current 2.5-liter unit that makes 305hp.
Subaru Tecnica International (STI) will also have a couple of other hot cars on display in Tokyo, from January 12, such as the Levorg STI Sport and BRZ STI Sport. These will be joined by the BRZ GT300 2017, WRX STI NBR Challenge 2016, Legacy RS 1993 New Zealand Rally, and Impreza 555 1996 San Remo Rally racers.
The WRX STI S208, a track-ready version of the car aimed solely at the Japanese market, will sit under the spotlight of the event as well.
