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.
Made for the snow, Vermont SportsCar included a Yakima FatCat 4 Snowboard Rack, Yakima Landing Pad rack base, and DC Shoes XFB-C Snowboards. Under the hood is the stock four-cylinder turbocharged 2.5-liter engine capable of producing 400 hp and 400 ft lbs of torque with its MOTEC M800 ECU tuning. To power those large rubber track wheels, Vermont SportsCar had to install a KAPS 5-speed dog-engagement gearbox which helps the Subaru DCCD (Driver Controlled Center Differential). Being an extremely unique car, the Subaru Impreza WRX STi Trax also features a custom carbon fiber sleigh that fits four passengers and rides on steel skis.
