There seems to be a rule in the automotive world which states all Subaru WRX STIs are meant to be rally cars. It’s a stereotype perpetuated by the car’s immense motorsport success off the pavement at the hands of people like Colin McRae and David Higgins. But nowadays, Subaru’s performance car is more diversified than ever.
Just look at Subaru’s performance in the Nurburgring 24 Hours. The team won its class last year in a prepped 2016 WRX STI, and plans on doing it again later this month. It’s proof Subarus can hold their own on asphalt as well as the tree-lined stages.
