Winning Car of the Inaugural Rally Japan
About the Subaru Impreza WRC 2004
Making her WRC debut in Mexico in round 3, the 2004 Subaru Impreza featured major improvements in areas like the bodyshell, engine and aerodynamics. The 2004 WRC season saw the first ever WRC event to be hosted in Japan, with Rally Japan held in Hokkaido in early September. It was no surprise that Japanese rally icon, the Subaru Impreza, had the majority of the crowd's support as it rushed to the lead from the outset. Driver Petter Solberg didn't disappoint the fans or the Subaru team, leading Rally Japan from start to finish to take his third victory of the season and move into second place in the drivers' championship. In 2004, Solberg and the 4-cylinder 16 valve turbocharged Subaru Impreza dominated the gravel tracks, winning victories in New Zealand, Greece, Japan, Great Britain and Italy.

About Rally Japan
The World Rally Championship (WRC) is one of the premier international racing events. Unlike Formula racing, which takes place on a circuit track, WRC races are held on ordinary, public roads, and feature stock cars based on commercially available vehicles. WRC 2004 took place over a total of 16 rounds, and marked the first ever World Rally event held in Japan. The City of Obihiro, Hokkaido hosted round 11 of the WRC from September 3rd to 5th, and drew an amazing 210,000 spectators.

Rally Modifications Reproduced to the Finest Detail

Cool and Distinctive Front
Air outlets on the Impreza's hood give it a distinctive, racing-ready look. Open front grill permits view of the impressively sculpted V-shaped intercooler and radiator, allowing modeler to admire their hard work after putting the kit together.

Characteristic Sectioned Rear Wing Molded as One Piece
Large, sectioned rear wing provides down force when cornering. We have modeled this vital piece of equipment as a single part, in order to capture its unique and stylish form. The five antennas on the Impreza's roof are also included in the kit.

Interior Roll Cage and Cabin Built With Realism and Accuracy
The complex structure of the interior roll cage is one of the distinctive features of WR cars, and therefore could not be left out of our Impreza. The model features an impressive amount of detail including cabin fully tricked out with roll cage, bucket seats, fire extinguisher and dashboard with an array of dials and switches realisticly reproduced.
