As much as we love the roadgoing rallycars from Subaru and Mitsubishi, it's because of the way they drive, not necessarily for their handsome silhouettes. But beauty is, as they say, in the eye of the keyholder. Artist Benedict Radcliffe, head of experimental design at the Glasgow consultancy Stand, fashioned this wireframe outline of a Subaru WRX as an objet d'art. It sits outside the Paul Smith gallery on Albemarle Street in Glasgow, Scotland London, England (Thanks, Tony). And showing they have no love of fine art, the local constabulary has repeatedly ticketed the offending vehicle. Tickets are alternately written out to The Invisible Man or Wonder Woman, apparently. Well, it does take up a parking space, but come on guys. We remember seeing VW Beetles with intricate ironwork "bodies" in place of traditional panels, but this is a bit more extreme. It actually looks like a styling buck at first glance, but click here or here to see that it is indeed the real deal.

      It's not a WRX, it's an Impreza RS. Cool wireframe, regardless.

      That should have said ‘Brunswick Hotel’. Apologies for the typo.

      Haha! If anyone, it would be the Invisible Man and Wonder Woman who should be annoyed for getting tickets written out to their names and it's not even their car. Besides, if the constables really didn't like the frame being there in the first place, they would have had it taken away.

      Uh, Josh buddy--let me guess, you're from the US, right?

      Oh, one other thing: The Paul Smith Gallery (and this exhibition) is in London. That's about 450 miles away from Glasgow and in a totally different country.

      At first glance, it looks like a cg-rendered wireframe.

      Nice choice of impreza, btw. The GC coupes were my favorite.

      the US needs a WRX coupe, and badly at that
