Here at motoblog there’s one thing we really love seeing every once in a while and that’s custom tuning of popular brands. And that’s why we are excited to see Japanese tuner Rowen International release the first official pictures of their version of the body kit for the Subaru Levorg. This comes shortly after the debut of the car at the Tokyo Auto Salon a couple a weeks ago. They have really done a fine job, adding a fine sport touch to an already gorgeous vehicle and the whole picture looks fantastic.
While we have the opportunity to enjoy the view of the Rowen Subaru Levorg RR we still don’t know much about the details of tuning package which we believe will be revealed any time soon. Then again what’s certain from the photographs is that this Subaru has an even meaner race car-like design accompanied with a large front splitter, chunky side skirts, a rear diffuser and a tall rear wing, exactly everything you dream of putting on your rusty ol’ wagon.
Of course there are other stuff, that are not noticeable at first but also play a part in the customization. These are more subtler details and need a bit more observing to recognize like the tailgate spoiler, Titan Blue exhaust system with signature tailpipes, sports front grille, LED lights, fender flares, wheels, and those graphics adorning the body in strategic places.
.That exhaust system is probably the extent of the performance upgrades for Rowen Subaru Levorg USA. But that’s OK, because this car is all about the looks. We can honestly say it is one of the coolest looking wagons we’ve seen in a very long time.
Another thing that needs no further explanation is that the Rowen Subaru Levorg has also been lowered and sits on a set of Prodrive Japan GC05N 29-inch gold alloy wheels with low-profile tires. And maybe the most NFS moment of them all is that at the bottom of the front bumper rest the little LEDs.
No word on what’s under the bonnet, but Rowen are not known for chip tuning their engines. In stock format, the all-wheel drive wagon is available with either a 1.6-liter turbo boxer engine or a bigger 2-liter. The base model offer 170 PS and 250 Nm (184 lb-ft) of torque, while the high-spec car has 300 PS (211 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. Both have permanent all-wheel drive and offer a choice of manual or Lineartronic CVT gearboxes.
