SUBARU VIZIV 2 CONCEPT
“SUBARU VIZIV 2 CONCEPT” follows the footsteps of its predecessors “VIZIV CONCEPT”, unveiled at last year’s Geneva Motor Show, and “VIZIV EVOLUTION CONCEPT”, revealed at Tokyo Motor Show 2013. It is a future-generation crossover concept that signifies a future path for the Subaru’s brand value of “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind”. The “VIZIV” model name is a word inspired by the phrase “Vision for Innovation”.
All-new Subaru WRX STI
The all-new WRX STI is the top grade model of the WRX series. In developing the all-new WRX STI, Subaru tested it under various driving conditions in several countries to perfect its driveability. The performances of the body, chassis and other vehicle areas have all been optimised and unified, thus advancing the overall vehicle capacity. It is the pinnacle of Subaru AWD sport performance which allows the driver to manoeuvre high power freely and at will.
New WRX STI racing car for 24 Hours Nürburgring endurance race
Subaru will participate in the Nürburgring 24-Hour Race (from June 19 to 22 in Germany) for its seventh consecutive year. For this project, FHI and Subaru Tecnica International Inc. (STI)* reinforced their collaboration to create a competitive racing car based on the all-new WRX STI. The Nürburgring 24-Hour Race demands performance vehicles with both speed and stability. By aiming for victory in its class for the third time following its last win in 2012, Subaru will prove its engineering excellence that realises the brand value “Enjoyment and Peace of Mind”.
