Be Even More Like McRae in His Ex-Rally Subaru

-Anyone can buy a Subaru WRX STI and tell their friends they drive a rally car for the streets. Not many people can buy one that’s actually a rally car and was driven by both Colin McRae and Petter Solberg in actual races. But for just a tad under $250,000 (at current conversion rates), you could be one of those lucky people.
-Yes, has a 2007 Subaru WRX STI rally car available right now that it claims was driven by both racers. The engine has gotten a full rebuild and the body has been refurbished, with the seller saying the car’s in “showroom condition.” It’s not wearing its full racing livery, but it still looks ready to relive its glory days, even coming with an FIA passport log.

Speaking of its glory days, this is the car that placed second in the WRC rally in Portugal, third in Acropolis, and fourth in Wales. It’s also reportedly the car being driven below by Colin McRae at the 2007 Goodwood Festival of Speed, which ended up being his final public appearance.

The asking price is currently £159,500.00, which works out to right around $230,000, but assuming the car’s provenance, it’s an excellent opportunity to own a historical rally car driven by two world champions. That’s pretty awesome.
