    Subaru Australia is producing a range of custom motorsport vehicle packages based on the popular Impreza WRX STI spec.C – the Group N FIA homologated car developed by Fuji Heavy Industries in Japan.

    Designed for customers wanting to purchase a motorsport vehicle to their desired specification, the base Impreza WRX STI spec.C is just a starting point.

    Subaru Managing Director Nick Senior said: “We’re catering for a broad spectrum of motorsport drivers, from committed enthusiasts to professionals with team backing looking for PWRC success.

    “The Impreza WRX STI spec.C is an incredibly flexible package that can be tailored for everything from Targa events to gravel rally. There’s a long list of options and we believe there’s a dedicated audience that we’re keen to cater for.”

    Damn... one sick machine, but it can't smoke my GT4 Spec-C.

    Still one hell of a machine

    The Spec-C in GT4 I tuned could do anything well,except drift

    Note- I expect a good flaming by other members, so if you want to... do it.
    I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

    That is actually pretty cheap, espiecally when you compare it to the FR500GT Mustang, (even though they are built for different things)

    And if you expect a flaming KoTR, don't post it.

    so it looks like there is a radio, aircon, carpets, etc. does that mean that this will be legal for road use too?

    Rally cars are by definition road legal.

    They are, since they have to drive on normal not-closed roads from stage to stage. If you see a picture of a WRC from either the front or the back you'll notice number plates.

    I'll take all of them, because it's too hard to choose.
    One thing's for sure, they'll all be fast.

    As for WRC cars, since they are road legal, does that mean that between stages, WRC drivers can use the car to go run errands? Because it would be cool to park next to a WRC Impreza at the supermarket (or Food Library).
