After unveiling Travis Pastrana’s Subaru WRX STi in bare carbon, we now get to see it all wrapped up with a new livery. The result is beautiful. Hoonigan took the Subaru with its new look to Subaru of America technical partner Vermont SportsCar’s headquarters located in Milton, Vermont. Underneath the livery is an extreme car ready for whatever Gymkhana or its racing future throws in its path. It’s powered by a completely bespoke 2.3-liter Subaru Boxer engine with a billet block. The sound that this engine puts out is absolutely beastly.
“This STI is unbelievable!” said Pastrana. “We’ve never had the opportunity to do this before, to build a car with no restrictions. Engine, suspension, aero—everything is unlimited, clean sheet. It’s crazy fast, easy to control and get sideways and it was perfect out of the box in testing. Gymkhana is a new challenge for me but I want to raise the bar, and this is the car to do it.”
Needless to say, I can’t wait to see Travis Pastrana and his new Subaru take on Gymkhana.
