The Subaru IMPREZA Super Touring Car is a Race car produced by Subaru.
This description is taken from the description page in GT5. It is transcluded from here.
The 1st-generation Subaru Impreza WRC stormed onto the World Rally scene in 1997. This rally car was built according to WRC-class regulations introduced that year. Since improvements like engine swaps, 4WD conversion and suspension changes were now allowed, there was an opportunity for huge performance gains, but regrettably, the Impreza WRC's power output was kept at a modest 296 BHP.
So Gran Turismo decided to step in and create the Subaru Impreza Super Touring Car. Despite its strong rally image, this Impreza was tailored to circuit-racing specs and prepared for battle in touring car races all over the world.
Quite a few modifications were made. The body was rebuilt from the ground up with an all-carbon shell. The wings were widened in both the front and rear to accommodate the wide tyres, as well as to make room for the long suspension arms.
On the outside, the macho wide wheel arches draw attention. A large rear wing with huge fins was attached, as well as a front spoiler. There is also a large "power bulge" in the bonnet for cooling the engine. Despite all this, the car weighs in at a trim 1 ton or so.
The engine is an EJ20-type 2L DOHC flat-4 with a single turbocharger, and generates around 414 BHP. The 4WD system employs a reinforced mechanical centre differential, now a staple in the WRC. The front-rear torque-split ratio is adjustable between 25:75 and 50:50. The engine has even been repositioned in order to get closer to a 50/50 front-back weight distribution, giving the car fantastic manoeuvrability in the bargain. This car shows new possibilities for the Impreza.
