Its epic rally success, spectacular drivers, and genuine on-road abilities are the factors, which moved Subaru from the position of a rather mediocre car brand to the worldwide famed manufacturer of cleverly engineered cars with barking flat-4 engines and exceptionally effective AWD technology. This is why such beautiful Subaru Impreza WRC art deserves its own spot at your place.
This Subaru Impreza WRC art is nothing less than impressive
Subaru was not rally newbies when they decided to form a partnership with Prodrive to enter World Rally Championship. It happened in 1989 when the Subaru World Rally Team was created. Their first attempt was with the Legacy RS but the car that made them famous was the smaller Impreza. In 1995, Subaru World Rally Team signed a sponsorship deal with State Express 555 cigarettes brand, which gave the distinctive blue and yellow racing livery, a trademark for Subaru WRC cars.
Petter Solberg and Tommi Makinen were the Subaru pilots for season 2003. It did not start really well and neither of them managed to finish Rallye Monte Carlo. Solberg compensated with three wins in a row in Cyprus, Australia, France and finished the season with a win in Britain. This way, he managed to win the championship title beating Sebastien Loeb by just one point. Unfortunately, Subaru WRC Team could not get the constructor title lagging behind by Citroen and Peugeot.
The success of Petter Solberg was secured by extremely close work by Prodrive and Subaru. They were ready with the 2003 car just a few months after the official debut of the new Impreza at the Geneva Motor Show. You will recognize this very car by its sectioned rear spoiler that featured six vertical wings. Nice signature, isn’t it?
