SUBARU IMPREZA 555 ROAD MODELS
The phenomenal success of the Prodrive built Group A Impreza 555 in the world rally arena spawned a multitude of limited production models for the Japanese domestic market from Fuji Heavy Industries.
On the whole these were based upon the more extreme models within the range. They all had a strong rallying theme thanks to the use of two unique colours, mirroring the WRC liveries of the day, and various rally-oriented upgrade parts.
The popularity of these models can be seen from the ever increasing numbers produced – still selling well several years after the Group A 555 had been superseded by the 2-door, wide body World Rally Car for the 1997 season.
Rest of the World markets also benefited from some limited editions to celebrate the WRC successes, but nothing quite as exciting as the JDM models being showcased here.
