Subaru Legacy B4 GT300 - Click above for high-res image gallery

Our jaws literally dropped when we spotted this car in the Subaru booth here at the Tokyo Motor Show. The concoction of carbon fiber spoilers, wings and widened fenders seen here is the Legacy B4 GT300 racecar that is set to compete in Japan's Super GT series next year. The car actually made its racing debut at Fuji Speedway last month, and even though previous driveline problems prevented this racer from making an even earlier debut, the B4 GT300 managed 300 trouble-free kilometers to finish a respectable 18th place.

As for specs, the Legacy B4 GT300 features a 2.0-liter turbocharged boxer-four that pumps out more than 300 horsepower. With all-wheel drive, a six-speed sequential transmission, and a curb weight of just over 2800 pounds, we imagine it's an absolute blast to pilot around the track. You can see the car in detail in our high-res gallery below.

      Only in a name is this a Legacy because just like Nascar none of these cars carry any stock parts over to the race cars. Its still cool looking though

      JDM happens to stand for Japanese Domestic Market. Just saying.

      Absolutely beautiful. I know it would never happen but it makes me crave a two door Legacy GT.

      WOW! That thing is crazy looking. Reminds me of a nitro RC car I had when I was a teenager.

      I would love to see this in GT5

      I really really want to root for Subaru. If they can get their styling right...and they show some signs of life in that regard, it's a company that really puts in engineers first, you've got to respect that. Plus the fact they put out hot hatches with great AWD and Manuals sure is nice …no?

      If only NASCAR looked this good...
      • 5 Years Ago
      ...so when's the street version coming to the US?
      • 5 Years Ago
      That does look aggressive, too bad that the stock version looks so weird. Just my opinion.

      "the B4 GT300 managed 300 trouble-free kilometers "

      Wow- they were able to drive it a whole 186 miles without any issues! Congratulations, Subaru!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Those 186 miles were on a racetrack. For a new racecar platform, it's nothing to shake a stick at.
        • 5 Years Ago
        That's impressive on a new chassis in motorsport.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Sorry, but 186 miles is not an amazing foray into motorsports. How many trouble free miles have other new entries in road racing had? Seems to me many 'new' chassis have made it through 186 miles in road racing without fanfare. While it is a good achievement, it is not necessarily a major one.

      I like it.
