The Impreza WRC was the first Subaru rally car which was entirely built in Prodrive facilities. The new car was finished just 3 weeks prior its presentation to the press, which happened during the 1996 Catalunya Rally. After that, the tests were settled in Catalan roads, in the preparation of the 1997 season, with Colin Mcrae, Piero Liatti and Kenneth Eriksson at the wheel. The season start seemed to confirm the success of the new concept, as Subaru drivers ensured the victory in the first three rallies: Liatti in Montecarlo, Eriksson in Sweden and Mcrae in Kenya. This car is much related to Colin McRae, which in 1998 helped him win three rallyes before leaving to drive for Ford. "If in doubt, flat out", this is our tribute to the S5 WRC and the legend, Colin McRae!
