Would you trade your Subaru WRX STI for a BRZ STI Rally car?

The 2015 Subaru WRX STI is a Rally-bred race car. Why is Subaru rolling out a 2014 BRZ Rally car? Denis Flierl reports from TorqueNews.com.

Subaru has been rally-racing since the early 70s and thatís where the Subaru teams developed todayís rally-bred 2015 WRX STI. The seeds for the current successful Subaru Rally Team USA were first sown when Jack Coyle, who owned a Subaru dealership in San Bernardino, California, built a rallying Subaru FF-1. "Pete" Petrowsky, a salesman at the dealership, first drove it in the Baja 500 off-road race in 1971.

Subaru has a storied history in Rally racing and the All Japan Rally Championship is still a big part of the automakers motorsport involvement today. The first leg of the Tour de Kyushu 2014 in Karatsu Japan, kicks off the All Japan Rally Championship this weekend. But is Subaru bringing a BRZ Rally car?

This year, Champion Katsuta Norihiko and Adachi Sayaka will compete in the Subaru WRX STI, and for the first time, Subaru and Subaru Tecnica International (STI) will bring a new driver Kamata Takuma to compete in the new Subaru BRZ rally car. They will bring a full compliment of the top Japan Subaru mechanics to support the WRX STI and BRZ race teams.

We would expect to see the Subaru WRX STI in the race, but what about the new BRZ? The Subaru coupes are not new to racing. Where did Subaruís involvement in Rally racing start? Noriyuki Koseki from Japan entered the Baja 500 in a Subaru GL Coupe that had been built for rallies in Japan. Koseki went on to form the Subaru Rally Team Japan, and he also entered a Group A Subaru Leone RX Turbo in the famous Safari Rally with various drivers in the 1980s.

In 1988, Koseki helped establish Subaru Tecnica International (STI), and a year later STi formed a partnership with Prodrive to create the official Subaru World Rally Team to compete in the World Rally Championship (WRC). This was the foundation for developing the WRX STI rally cars.

STi Wing Purposefully Leaked to the Twitter-sphere

Apr 14, 2014 - 2:26 PM - by NickJ

In a world where the "leaks" are carefully orchestrated by the suits with "Marketing" in their titles, the latest installment is of a rather odd combination of paint, metal, and composites. The image above appears to be the latest leak from Subaru that found it's way onto the Subaru_USA Twitter feed yesterday with the tag "See you at the New York Auto Show." Do they have variant of the STi already up their sleeves? Special editions of the Impreza WRX has always been Subaru's modus operandi: releasing a special car in a market that is not yours, and popping a price tag on it that punches well above it's weight.

The mismatched paint and use of raw carbon fiber might suggest that they are going to be showing up to the NY Auto Show with a special edition that features some upgraded aero packaging. Note the NASCAR style lip on the rear deck lid, and the wing lip. This new rear wing has the signs of a WRC car, with the vertical supports made of carbon. All of this is placed on a rather drab Grey Metallic base car. The use of vibrant blue could be used to lead the eye towards the upgrades on the all new Limited Edition car to come out of the Subaru Camp.

This new car is almost assuredly, the Subaru WRX STi RS GT Type Ra Spec B Formula D Edition that will be available exclusively to the Fijian Domestic Market, and command over $75,000 USD to be paid only in Sri Lankan rupees.
