We wouldn't quite call ourselves fans of the Fast and Furious franchise, but we're getting more and more impressed with this newest iteration of the Subaru Impreza WRX STI. We'll admit that it's hardly the most attractive hatch on the road, but its blend of planted purposefulness and flared fenders have slowly made converts out of some of us.

Could it be made uglier? Most certainly. But the crew at Veilside are supplying a kit for the new STI that will make its debut in the new Fast and Furious sequel. The Rally Blue 'Rex is getting a full work-over at a shop in Southern California before Paul Walker (aka Brian O'Connner) takes the helm and our friends at ExhaustNote.com were able to supply some pics in the midst of modifications. While the new front bumper and precariously placed spoiler might not suit everyone's taste, the full roll cage could mean that better (non-CG, please) stunts are on the way.

      Probably because you can't double clutch on the EVO X.

      I love the "non-thinking" movies, just the passive entertainment one needs to relax and chill out

      This ain't a bad looking body kit.

      Really impressive how they glorify illegal street racing, and not sanctioned motorsports on actual tracks.

      But being responsible while having your motorized competitive fun, and not putting innocents and property at risk, just isn't "furious"!

      Gag me. Not surprising, considering hollywood, though.

      Coupe de Grace for Subaru! You can't get better advertisement per dollar than this for the 08 STi. Other than the cost of donner cars it's Win Win. I am flattered to see my beloved car as one of the leads. I look forward to purchasing my movie ticket for FnF4.
