Subaru's latest high-spec vehicle got itself all launched up at the Autosport International show in the UK this week. The Impreza Spec.D (D is for discreet) clocks the same performance numbers as its less spec'd WRX STI sibling, but has limited-slip diffs in the front and rear, an updated gearshift and an intercooler cooler that allows the driver to spray cold water on the unit via a dash button. The discreet part refers to its lack of gaudy blue paint and gold rims, tunnel-baiting rear spoiler and black-on-black interior. Still, with those BBS wheels, air dam and hood scoop, no one's going to mistake it for a 1990 Justy, arguably the most discreet Subaru of all.
