When awaiting the final release of something big, a sneak peek can often go a long way in helping people hold their breath. For example, when I first saw the trailer for Casino Royale, the most recent James Bond film, I knew the movie was going to be amazing. I had read that the filmmakers re-tooled the story to be more action-oriented and a bit rougher around the edges while maintaining the sheer coolness of the Bond character, and the preview certainly kept me anticipating the full showing for months on end. Similarly, upon visiting Tokyo and seeing all the latest cars that were in the process of being tuned-but not quite ready-on display by various manufacturers, I found myself anxiously wanting to see what would come of these awe-inspiring vehicles. For instance, the latest manifestation of Subaru's Impreza STI dressed to the nines by ings+1. At this point, the car is mainly an outer shell of what is to come, but it is definitely not a bad outer shell to be in. Have an exclusive first look at what is sure to be a lean, mean and super clean STI.
