    Ooh,hang on. That is the throb of a turbocharged flat four engine. A sound which,all over the world,heralds the imminent arrival of a moron - JC.

    Wouldn't it be nice to get your hands on a car like that without having a dime invested into it?

    Really cool video.

    Kind of makes me wonder why Subaru doesn't just send their rally team a body shell and motor and whatever else they kept from stock and save cost and labor in tearing down the car. I mean they took a brand new car and stripped it down, don't you think it'd be a little easier for them to just receive a shell/motor?

    It is a 2008, it even says so at the beginning of the video. Subarus website is full of incorrect details. Kinda sad, maybe I should offer to go through and find everything that is wrong and fix it for them. For money of course.
