Subaru’s in-house performance tuning division is preparing a fantastic looking WRX STI sedan that’s parked at the 2011 SEMA Auto Show.

Aesthetically speaking, Subaru Performance Tuning’s imprint is all over the car as evidenced by all the aerodynamic additions given to the sedan. The front lip spoiler, the carbon fiber B-pillar trim, the carbon fiber trunk trim, and the carbon fiber side sill plates are all products of SPT. The WRX STI also carries new strut tower and lower chassis braces that come in handy in maximizing the potential of the car’s newly-installed Cusco Zero-2E coilover suspension kit.

Other exterior additions to the car include a moon roof air deflector, exhaust finishers, a billet oil cap (V.2), a billet battery hold down (V.2), and a set of 19" Volks Racing G12 wheels wrapped in Yokohama ADVAN Sport tires with Brembo’s "Gran Turismo" four-wheel brake kit.

Inside, SPT gave the WRX STI a unique electronic set-up, highlighted by a Footwell illumination kit, an auto-dimming mirror with a trans-reflective display, and a media hub digital music integration system with a 10" KICKER subwoofer.

Looking at the car, it’s easy to see why Subaru Performance Tuning had such an easy time setting up an aftermarket program for it. The WRX STI is one of those cars that’s already easy on the eyes and any such modifications done is like adding that cherry on top of the proverbial sundae.

With its 305 Hp @ 6,000 RPM, it can surely have a nice speed but not really so remarkable for a race car. Moreover, I must say that I’m not impressed with the graphic design that they did on it, it looks very nasty on that.

This one is very noticeable and looking so exotic with its graphic design. However, I think either that it is better if they use a simple design on its exterior. Anyway, I’m already quite impressed with its engine.

Well, just like them, I’m not so impressed with the graphic design of this Subaru, and it is really better if it had a simple style. Anyway, I only hope that its engine would truly be good enough on it.

I have to agree with you Nilde Mazzi, that this Subaru is really looking very messy on its graphic design, although for the other, it would surely become so artistic. Anyway, I’m impressed on its engine. It is quite good on it.

Yeah! I have to agree that it looks so nasty on its graphic design, and it is really much better if they let it on a simple styling. Anyway, I wonder if what will be the interior of it, would look like?

I don’t like the graphic design of this race car. I just find it too nasty! However, I wonder if what are the other good or awesome features that this one can offer aside from having an impressive engine specs.

Well, I think it is! For the fact that it is in a turbo charged engine, it can surely have a great speed performance. Anyway, this sedan is kind of interesting and impressive, but it looks so nasty either on that design.

The aerodynamic addition on this Subaru is definitely very striking on it, and it looks so artistic on that. However, I have a big doubt on its engine. I don’t think that it will be enough on it.

The design that it had is so sporty on this one. Well, I can say that it’s really a head turner on it, but it had also a look of a nasty car. Anyway, I’m glad that the engine of this one is really suited on this race car.
