Subaru ‘McRae’ Impreza S3 WRC - 1997
The 1997 Subaru ‘McRae’ Impreza S3 you see in these stunning photos is a legendary rally car, and rightly so. It is the perfect combination of Subaru’s evolution of their rally versions paired with one of the greatest rally drivers of all time giving Subaru victories in five rounds of the 1997 World Rally Championship. This was the greatest year for Colin McRae and Subaru, and although McCrae and co-driver Nicky Grist finished 2nd outright in the championship, there was only one point separating them from Tommi Makinen after 14 rounds. Also, of significance for Subaru and their Prodrive 555 racing team was the dominant win of the manufacturers championship for this same year, in what was essentially a brand new package.
