Subaru WRX STI – Rally of the Tall Pines

Friday, January 7th, 2011:

Hot off the press, Subaru Canada sent us these videos of the new WRX STI racing through the Rally of the Tall Pines with four amazing camera angles. With the new Choose Your Own Angle Youtube video, you can select which view to watch in full screen, while the other three are still live in sync. The videos show us exactly what a Subaru WRX STI is made for! Watch Rally Driver Pat Richard rip through the course while hearing navigator Alan Ockwell give him directions in the dashboard camera view. With this speed and handling, Subaru should get some type of car of the year award!

Subaru WRX STi TV Commercial

These interesting videos and pictures come from Subaru who are launching a new television commercial for the 2011 WRX STi. This isn’t your typical advertisement, and you must watch both the videos to get a good understanding of how they did it, flip book style. Subaru used an old school zoetrope style animation with the entire tv spot frame by frame on the side of a test track. Next came the STi with a camera attached to the side, one foot away from the wall, accelerating as fast as possible down the track to create the illusion of animation. It’s great to see the car outrun a giant mechanical spider, however I think I’d still prefer to see the Subaru STi rally car on the dirt track spewing clouds of dust from the all-wheel-drive.

Subaru revealed their Impreza WRX STi Trax at the SEMA Motor Show with some amazing custom work that would be difficult to duplicate. Built for the snow tracks, the Subaru WRX STi Trax boasts 400 hp and was modified by Vermont SportsCar. Originally for famous STi driver Ken Block, the Subaru features a Mattraks rubber track system that comes second to none. The car has a completely gutted interior that was fitted with a multipoint steel roll cage, and seam-welded for extra support. Inside the Subaru Impreza are Recaro SPA ProRacer competition seats, carbon fiber door panels, and a fire suppression system.

If you’re wanting the best bang for your buck, you should consider the newly redesigned Subaru WRX STi tuned by COBB Tuning. They are an American tuning company from the Salt Lake City area that specializes in tuning Japanese makes and models. For this particular build they refrained from major upgrades that would require rebuilding the engine or upgrading the turbo, and instead took the economical approach to attract the daily driven STi’s, and those people who occasionally take them to the track on the weekends. The performance upgrades include a 3-inch downpipe with full catback exhaust, cold air intake, and their AccessPORT system which boosts this Subaru’s stats to 350 hp/353 ft-lbs of torque.
