Subaru has chosen the World's best motorsport show, Autosport International at the NEC, Birmingham, 10 and 11 January, to unveil a special edition Subaru Impreza WRX STi for the first time ever.

The WR1 - as it will be called - celebrates Petter Solberg winning the Driver's title in the 2003 World Rally Championship.

Solberg will be at the Show on Sunday to officially unveil the car, meet with fans and sign autographs.

On sale in the Spring and limited to 500 units, the WR1 will be instantly recognisable thanks to its new Ice Blue Metallic paint plus driving lamps and stainless steel mesh grille.

The new supercar will feature a power upgrade to around 320 PS plus a host of technical and visual upgrades, including a driver's control centre-differential (DCCD) via a switch mounted next to the handbrake.

Also new for the 'WR1' are special, Prodrive-developed up rated springs and bump-stops with a 25mm low ride-height. Handling features include 18" diameter P-FF7 (Prodrive Flow Forming seven-spoke) alloy wheel with Pirelli Pzero tyres.
