Click above for a high-res gallery of the Subaru Impreza WRC2008.

Next week's Acropolis Rally in Greece will be the first event in the 2008 WRC season to feature Subaru's new rally car. The Impreza Rally WRC2008 car was originally previewed at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, but Subaru has yet to announce the final specifications of its new rally rocket. Obviously, Prodrive has had its hand in developing the new racer, but a BOS sticker indicates that Subaru will be utilizing the French outfit's dampers. Petter Solberg and Chris Atkinson will pilot the new Impreza in Greece and Prodrive head David Richards is convinced that this is "the most radically different Subaru World Rally Car in 15 years." We're looking forward to seeing how it fares next week.

      Pull through this year Subaru! Prove that under the ugly shell, it is the rally car that could!

      Ha, double fender flare in the front?
        • 6 Years Ago

      for the first time in two years the impreza looks...awesome

      I bet Solberg demanded for a new car after what happened at Sardegna. It was more than ridiculous.

      Does it really matter since we can't watch WRC on TV here in the US?

      My money's on Atkinson too. Petter has flashes of brilliance but either the car or him aren't consistent enough, not that I've seen a world rally in 2 years.

      Mother of God. To the people complaining about the gigantic spoiler, how often does a rally driver look out the rear window? Have you ever seen the Pikes Peak Escudo? Now thats a spoiler :)

      i like the new look A+ for prodrive
      • 6 Years Ago
      Yeah, other than the outrageous spoiler (which wouldn't be needed on the street-driven version), this is a heck of a lot better looking than the regular production model. =P
