With the New York Auto Show taking place tomorrow there are several new models to look forward to, but for those young racers in you the Subaru WRX Concept will certainly be of a great interest. If we are to believe the rumors then we could possibly see the concept vehicle at the event tomorrow, but in the mean time it looks as though some illustrations along with specs have leaked.
Okay, so we know nothing official has been announced, but a French website believes the images are the real deal, and if they are we cannot wait to see the real thing. If these images are an exact representation of the WRX, then it looks to be almost complete, so let’s hope we see something tomorrow.
As for those all-important Subaru WRX Concept specs the engine could produce 275 horsepower to 300 hp from its rumored turbocharged boxer engine. There is said to be ventilated discs as well as six-piston calipers in order to get all four wheels to stop as quickly and smoothly as possible.
Handling will be spot on as always thanks to Subaru’s all-wheel drive system, but apart from that it’s anyone’s guess as to what goodies will be incorporated into the new WRX.
Going back to the design of the WRC concept, it seems to look like a cross between a new Jaguar and a 2015 Mustang. However, we have to remember Subaru are notorious for bringing a car to production and not resemble its concept counterpart whatsoever.
Overall we love the aggressive styling and just hope it makes it to production.
