IIRC the "555" comes from a British tobacco/cigarette company that sponsored the WRC car (I think it was called "State Express 555" or something). A couple years back their contract ended, hence no more "555" on the WRC subys.

[Edit- teh mods beat me to it]

555 are made by British American Tobacco (BAT) who also make Luckie Strike

they sponsored subaru for a long time then decided to go off and sponsor F1
(Lucky Strike /555 Car i think Villeneuve drove for them)
then they came back to sponsor subaru a couple of years ago
