Watch 2015 Subaru WRX STI take on drone quadcopters and win [video]

Go behind the scenes of the latest 2015 Subaru WRX STI video to learn about its inspiration and how it was made.

The new-generation 2015 Subaru WRX STI is ready to make its dealer launch and it’s nimble enough to navigate through an autocross track made entirely of moving drone quadcopters. Subaru Canada produced a video that shows the all-new-generation 2015 Subaru WRX STI’s precision and performance.

Tara Willis, Advertising Manager, Subaru Canada has to have the best job in the world as she gets to have fun showcasing the new STI. They were able to use some cool technology in the making of the new video. Mark Glaser, Director at Big Block in Los Angeles, California wanted to show what only the WRX STI can pull off. They used a new technology called driveathon that is just like driving the real 2015 WRX STI on the ground.

They download all the vital specs of the 2015 WRX STI into the driveathon computer and then took the car through its paces to create the unique video. Willis talks about the new WRX and WRX STI and how fun it was to make the video. She said, “ I love this idea because it was just this amazing combination of technology and performance and just the essence of the WRX and the STI.”

Subaru Canada has been instrumental in showcasing the performance attributes of the new WRX STI and just recently put out a video of four-time World Rally Champion Tommi Makinen behind the wheel of the new STI at Buttonwillow Raceway Park. After a day of testing the new WRX STI, Makinen said, "You cannot do any mistakes with this car. They have done incredible work. Always going a step forward, and forward, and this is very nice to see from the previous model up to the 2015." 

You can catch a sneak peek as these slick drones putting the all-new redesigned 2015 Subaru WRX STI through its paces. The new-generation performance car is engineered by Subaru Technica International to perform. Watch how easily it tackles tricky corners and obstacles in the making of 2015 WRX STI vs the drones. We can't wait to get our hands on the real thing.
