Subaru has released the first teasing image of the new Impreza WRX STi, which is set to go on sale in the UK in spring 2008.

The car is powered by a turbocharged 300bhp 2.5-litre boxer engine, coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox and the company’s trademark four wheel-drive.

The car will be officially unveiled at the Tokyo Motor Show on October 24th, before going on sale in the UK in limited numbers in the spring of 2008.  Prices are expected to start from around £30,000.
