How much will you have to shell out for this historic Subaru STI? The asking price is 159,500.00 British Pounds ($231,371 US) which is a reasonable price considering the historic importance of this famous rally car.
The Subaru WRX STI was driven by Petter Solberg in the 2007 season of the World Rally Championship. It took second place overall in the 2007 WRC Rally de Portugal, third overall in the WRC Wales Rally, and a fourth place in the WRC Wales Rally GB. It was also driven by WRC Champion Colin McRae.
That same year, it was driven by Colin McRae at the 2007 Goodwood Festival of Speed. The championship driver thrilled fans that day as he drove the 2007 Subaru WRX STI fast around the course doing a few spins and even clipped hay bails as he powered the car around the track. It was one of his last public appearances in a Subaru. On September 15, 2007 Colin was tragically killed in a plane crash along with his five year old son Johnny and two family friends.
