But need a little more to get your heart racing? This might do the trick: Subaru has today confirmed that its radical Legacy (Liberty) B4 GT300 race car will also be on display.
The STI-developed Legacy B4 GT300 is powered by a 2.0 litre turbocharged boxer, churning out upwards of 225kW and packing all-wheel-drive and a six-speed sequential transmission.
“Visitors to our stand in Melbourne will see we’ve got a ‘performance corner’, which will include this amazing sleek Liberty race car, which is a highlight of the GT300 series in Japan," Subaru Australia boss Nick Senior said.
“We’ll also have a WRX STI racing car simulator, where visitors can try and set a lap record against some fierce competition at the famous Nurburgring circuit in Germany.”
Plans for a new WRX and WRX STI range based on the new Impreza remain unclear (with some reports suggesting the current models will continue alongside the new Impreza line-up), but buyers can expect to see the current STI hatch and sedan in Subaru's 'performance corner' at the show.
The Australian International Motor Show opens at 6pm on Friday 1 July and runs through until Sunday 10 July at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre.
Other new models and concepts confirmed for the 2011 AIMS include the 2012 Subaru Impreza, Toyota Prius V and Prius C, the Suzuki Swift S-Concept, the Peugeot 508, the Range Rover Evoque, the Toyota FT-86 II Concept, the 2012 Audi A6 and the 2012 Jaguar XF.
Appearances have also been confirmed for the all-new Lamborghini Aventador, the Lexus LF-Gh concept, the Mazda Shinari concept, and a preview of Australian carmaker JOSS Developments' upcoming JT1 supercar.
