Post What does the rabbit mean?

So what does it mean? I'm talking about the rabbit that's found on some impreza badges.

It is the STi ... mascot I guess. It probly represents speed and agility, like RidinLow said. It appears on various STi things. Hope that helps.

Another related question: why does STI use pink for their decals and badges? Any signifigance to the colour?
Pink is not exactly a color that comes to mind when thinking about motorsports.

The rabbit is not an official emblem of STi. It was used on some editions last in 1999 to signify the year of the Rabbit.
