To reduce weight and enhance the low center of gravity, the roof is made of carbon fiber. Slanted headlights with sharp edges appear capable of winning any staring contest.

Wheel arches on the all-wheel-drive concept are pronounced, while a shallow greenhouse adds to the streamlined yet sinister look, although we can't say what it will do for outward visibility.

The rear is topped with a curved trunk lid that acts as a spoiler. Large quad tailpipes balance the look while alluding to the power lurking under the hood. Subaru says the concept rolls on 20-inch BBS RI-D one-piece forged duralumin wheels with 245/40ZR20 Dunlop tires.

The concept has a wheelbase of 108.7 inches, overall length of 178 inches, width of 74.4 inches and height of 54.7 inches. Compared with the current WRX, the concept gains nearly 5.5 inches in wheelbase, is 2 inches shorter, nearly 4 inches wider and loses 3 inches in height.

WR Blue Pearl III is name of the paint color used on the concept. It's accented with electric yellow badging, brake calipers and exhaust tip finishers.

Exact powertrain details were not released but a statement from Subaru says the concept improves upon current WRX's power and handling.
