Rally’s greatest hero in road-going form

The Subaru WRX has a long and illustrious history as one of the greatest cars to ever grace the World Rally Championship. In competition form, it packs the absolute best package for AWD trail decimation. In road-going form, it’s not far off, as it includes an awesome four-cylinder engine, Subaru’s amazing all-wheel-drive system, and the sportiest look to ever grace a non-German sedan. With 305 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque from the 2.5-liter boxer engine, it can sprint to 60 mph in as little as 4.6 seconds – that’s 0.7-seconds faster than the Volkswagen Golf R and 0.1-seconds faster than the Ford Focus RS. With that kind of power, and it’s amazing look, we decided that the 2018 Subaru WRX STI deserves some screen time and thought you, our readers, might want to do the same. As such, we’ve picked out our favorite wallpaper below.
