Special Subaru WRX
SUBARU'S high speed WRX STI Type RA NBR Special is set to make its public debut and take on the famous hill climb at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.
The RA designation stands for Record Attempt and has been applied to various Subaru performance models.
The original venture took place in 1989 when a competition version Subaru Legacy broke the FIA World Speed Endurance Record by clocking over 62,000 miles in 18 days and set a top speed record of 138 mph.
On July 1 and 2 this year the race prepared WRX STI Type RA NBR Special willbe running in the Goodwood festival's Time Attack Open class and will be driven by rally and stunt driver Mark Higgins.
Higgins recently drove a WRX STI down St Moritz's Olympic bobsled run and set the lap record at the Isle of Man TT in 2016.
Subaru will also be at the Moving Motor Show at Goodwood on Thursday June 29 with cars available for visitors to try.
Later this summer the hot Subaru WRX special will be making an attempt at the Nurburgring speed record on the famous circuit in Germany.
