Colin McRae’s iconic WRC Subaru for sale

Motoring Research Logo By Gavin Braithwaite-Smith of Motoring Research | Slide 1 of 38: The word ‘iconic’ is dished out like grease-burgers at a grassroots motorsport event, and more often than not the car in question isn’t worthy of the elevated status. But in the case of the Subaru Impreza WRC car of 1997, it’s more than justified. Put it this way: gather a group of rally enthusiasts to don their team jackets in order to discuss the most successful – and yes, iconic – rally cars of all time, and the 1997 Impreza will be mentioned. Which is why the auction of ‘PRO/WRC/97001’ is a big deal.
