The raw carbon anatomy looks like an absolute cheese grater. You could bandy a accomplished craven at the advanced fender as it drives by and end up with disconnected BBQ. Its hood-exit flame-spitting bankrupt will alike accord the bird a nice burn as it passes over the advanced of the car. And no, we can’t see any bonfire in the photos here, but Subaru promises that it does aftermath fire. The absurd aero was allegedly developed in a wind tunnel. And if you haven’t estimated by now, this car was advised with aught restrictions for anything. It’s not aggressive in any competition, so aggregate was optimized for the best accessible performance.
It’s packing a custom-built boxer engine, but Subaru isn’t accouterment any numbers for us yet. We can agreement that it’s authoritative bonkers power, through, as the added begrimed photos would suggest. The car additionally has a continued biking abeyance and “race-ready interior.”
Travis Pastrana will be abaft the caster in this 2020 Gymkhana alternation that is promised to be alike bigger and bigger than the Gymkhana videos afore it. Pastrana’s history of assemblage and rallycross active should advice him accommodate the aforementioned akin of ball that Ken Block provided in Subarus of the past.
“This STI is unbelievable!” Travis Pastrana, said. “We’ve never had the befalling to do this before, to body a car with no restrictions. Engine, suspension, aero — aggregate is unlimited, apple-pie sheet. It’s crazy fast, accessible to ascendancy and get alongside and it was absolute out of the box in testing. Gymkhana is a new claiming for me but I appetite to accession the bar, and this is the car to do it.”
The car itself is a accord amid Subaru and accomplice Vermont SportsCar. It did alpha as a assembly STI, but it looks annihilation like it now. We’re acquisitive to apprentice added about the car anon — new Gymkhana videos can’t appear anon enough.
