The guys who run Nihon Car (née Nihon Car & Bike) were able to get seat time in Subaru's latest limited-edition street-legal rally car, the Impreza WRX STI Type RA-R. Only 300 of the backroads bombers are being produced, and they're only being sold in Japan. Fortunately, the boys at Nihon are there to bring the goods to us Western folk via the Internet.

Their video review of the car is embedded after the jump. and hearing the RA-R's WRC-style exhaust note made us want to dial up Shatner for help in Pricelining our way over to Japan, pronto. Alas, that's not in the cards, so we'll live vicariously through Nihon Car. Their full review is here, and they have a photo gallery of their yellow tester that's car porn of the first order. Highly recommended.

To watch the video, follow the jump. Nihon Car also has a streamable and downloadable HD version of it on their site
