i wanna go to a maxim party.

I genuinely like the '08, but that looks kinda blah to me. I'd still take it though.

I think most of us agree that it looks like poop, but we really need to move on......

What is up with the color scheme? Is it just the flash or is that not even WRB? Any idea why the so much white and the touch of yellow?

Peace,

Greg

I would venture the guess that it is using traditional Subaru colors with some more white than usual. The flash is probably throwing everything off.

It's a street WRX with mad stickers, rally wheels/lift, and the worst color scheme possible.

That thing looks terrible!

Did you really think that we were going to get a sneak peak at the STI though? This is probably the most that the PR people were allowed to do. It is just a PR car to associate rallying with the new WRX.

Theres NO way hes going to be running a WRX against open class STis! He wont have the slightest chance! I think we will see it there somewhere, but I doubt it will be competing in anyway. Ugly, ugly livery on the car. Ugly car too.
