This is the first time Subaru World Rally Team (SWRT) will use a hatchback design, sporting a far more subdued livery compared with the Subaru WRC Concept.
Based on the road-going Impreza STi, it is powered by a turbocharged 2.0 litre horizontally opposed four-cylinder boxer engine producing around 224 Kilowatts of power.
All SWRT materials, including driver and support crew suits, are being revised to reflect the new team identity in time for the Acropolis Rally.
The Impreza WRC 2008 will be driven by Australia’s young-gun Chris Atkinson and Norwegian Petter Solberg in the Acropolis Rally starting 29 May.
CarAdvice will be bringing you a full video review of the new 2008 Subaru Impreza WRX STi in the coming weeks.
