The guys over at the North American Subaru Impreza Owners Club (NASOIC) have got the goods on the new STi by getting their hands on a Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) brochure.

Not only do we get a look-see at the interior but also some interesting information on the specs, thanks to the translation abilities of one of the NASOIC members.

The 2008 Impreza STi?s looks may have a question mark hanging over them but the rest of the package is hard to argue with and it would appear to be more than up to the task of taking on the new Lancer Evo X ? future comparisons will certainly be something to look forward to.

Carscoop?s sources have indicated the new STi will be unveiled (in detail) later this week, so stay tuned?
