Post New Impreza WRC in action

Forgive me if this has been posted before, but I didn't see any reference to it. This was taken from worldrallynews.com:


Text of the article entitled "New Subaru promising, but fragile," states, in part, "The performance of Subaru's latest Impreza more than lived up to Richard Burns's hopes, but a pre-Monte Carlo Rally test was cut short by engine failures."

Read the entire article here. Looks better covered with dirt, in any case.

Doesn't look good? I'd say it's just plain FUGLY.

I dunno....decked out in rally gear, it looks bad ass. Those headlights were what it needed. The stock one's are ugly. Maybe it's growing on me...

Cool

It would help if the pictures were in the correct aspect ratio !!!!

Any car can look like a banana if you tweak the settings

I have a question, maybe this should be used in a new topic. So if anyone feels this question shouldn't be here, please open up a new topic.

Ok, here's the question. I love the headlights new WRC car would use, they also would of course have to be HID and I'm sure they would be. But is it really possible to have them be for street use? Their would be no turn signal, so it can't be for road use. I haven't seen anyone bring this up and I've been dying to ask that. On the WRC their are 2 little orange lights on the bumpers, so couldn't those be used as turn signals?
