We've seen more spy shots of the upcoming Subaru Impreza WRX STi than we care to recount, but it looks like the first official image of Subie's road rocket has finally been leaked on the web. While there's been no confirmation from Subaru that this pic is the real deal, it has that official flavor that only press pics seem to have. Unfortunately, this particular pic is dark by nature and obscures many of the elements in which we're interested like the grille and lower front bumper. What we can see is gigantoid hood scoop, mega wide front fenders, and what appears to be a large rear wing out back. The official arrival of the Subaru Impreza WRX STi is imminent, as the debut will take place at the Tokyo Motor Show next month. Suburu will likely release its full batch of official images and specifications before then. Until then, chew on this.

      Looks awesome. Now all we need is 350hp(at least), 18x8 wheels, and the Aisin semi-auto paddle shift transmission. Then with those three things, Subaru officially has another monster on its hands to compete with the likes of the M3.

      I have an '04 Subaru WRX. Up until now I have hated the look of the '08...but I must say, this doesn't look half bad. Giving it the flared wide fenders really improves the look substantially....with the optional dechromed front grill, that just leaves the rear of the car. Do something about the chrome on the rear hatchback door and find something to fix the f-ugly tail lights and you've got yourself a decent looking Subaru. At least with the flared fenders it no longer looks like a turbo Corolla with a hoodscoop! I'm not a fan of the dual exhaust w/ 4 exhaust tips though....

      I'm convinced that subaru has team of designer competing for the ugliest possible design. Just when I'm convinced it can't get any uglier they amaze me with new levels of ugliness.

      Dark obscure pictures and antracite paint do a whole lot for the car. Will still be fugly at real angles.

      Why would anyone consider buying a VW R32 with a beast like this so close in price and so much heavier in performance? I will definitely be test driving my first subaru this spring. This looks so much better than the stupid sedan with the wing on the back.

      It is nicer than the WRX and I do like the idea of 300hp+ five door. But I still think I'll take an EVO X over this.

      Looks better but still needs to be a 3 door to have the look of the euro wrc cars. And looks DO matter - a lot!

      For the love of god, it's time to lose the 4 doors.
