Talking Pics from the largest Subi dealership in Australia

My parents just got back from australia today.

While there, they went to the largest Subi dealership in Australia. It was 4 floors, and had a separate building for STi operations and models. It took up about a whole city block in downtown Melbourne. It even had a cafe called the Pleiades Cafe.

It had its own skidpad and chassis dyno, as well as an area for the rally teams to prep the cars. It also had a freaking dirt track outside, complete with water hazard!!!

In the pics, that is actually Possum Bourne's bug-eye rally car.

Clicky for full-sized image.

Special freight elevator. They've got them in DC and also NYC. Its pretty cool, you just drive the car in, then out when you reach your floor.

As for the pictures, they're amazing. Nice to see the pictures of the GX and RV models too.

That's for the test drives, right?

Too bad I'd die of carbon monoxide poisoning from revving the car the whole time inside it.

I am so jealous of my parents.

I just kinda feel sorry for the fact that they had to drive a Hyundai Getz through those beautiful mountains........

They also managed to get me a whole bunch of rally magazines and stuff.

The pics were taken with a 5MP camera, but they lost some quality when uploading them (for file size). If someone has somewhere else to host them, I can send one or two.
