2011 Tokyo Auto Salon: Subaru Legacy Super GT Race Car is 10/10ths of Awesome


Arguably the best part about Japan’s Super GT racing series is that when it comes to running a car, there appear to be about as many rules as a monkey knife fight.

Often teams will run mismatched engines and bodies, simply using a certain shell for better brand marketing. That being said, Subaru‘s Legacy racer isn’t quite the stretch that it at first seems.

On display in the Subaru booth at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Salon, this ‘4-door’ might not share much in the way of a chassis with the current Legacy, but it is powered by a typically-Subaru horizontally-opposed boxer engine. But really, when a car looks this amazing, does anyone really care about authenticity?
