The folks at KGP snapped up a few shots of the new STI making the prerequisite rounds at the 'Ring, and although the camo is thick, you can make out some of the characteristics that will distinguish it as the top dog in the Impreza lineup.

First, out front, the grille has been replaced with a mesh insert, while a restyled fascia seems to protrude further down and out than the standard vehicle. Fender flares on all four corners should increase both the track and the visual prowess, however the rear wing isn't the Cessna-sized aerofoil that we'd expected. Additionally, a set of dual exhaust tips are poking out from behind the right side of the bumper.
