SUBARU IMPREZA WRC 2006 Prototype
1. SUBARU IMPREZA WRC 2006 Prototype* (replica model)
The WR car based on facelift new Impreza. Since 2003 FHI has been strengthening its support of the Subaru World Rally Team (SWRT), which takes part in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). FHI and SWRT have been closely working to improve on vehicle performance in rallying, to accumulate know-how with the feedback from rallying experience, and to apply that know-how and technology to the production of the Impreza base model.
* FIA homologation application scheduled
The new Impreza has raised its product appeal by redefining its sporty looks and the drivability inherent to this model. The Impreza WRX series is fitted with a 2.5 liter 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER Horizontally Opposed engine and STI version features an improved version of the driver’s control center differential (DCCD) as an standard equipment, an electronically controlled All Wheel Drive (AWD) system that adds a torque-sensitive, mechanical limited-slip differential (LSD). Balancing high levels of maneuverability and stability, it embodies driving pleasure.
In further advancing the basic concept of “Crossover SUV”, Subaru engineers have made substantial improvements on the Forester and raised its product appeal. Not only were driving performance and utilities enhanced, but sophisticated design and quality looks have been significantly improved.
