Subaru WRX STI is one of our favorite cars in motor. A sport of the old school in the background, rough, uncomfortable, and unfriendly on the paper. A true beast devouring of curves once we face a road to his level. My partner Mario was in the 24 Hours of Nürburgring with team of Subaru, and is now the own Subaru that pays tribute to the victory with a street car. A special edition named S207, with an extra spicy and many knick-knacks performance.
