Subaru Impreza 22B STI: The Original Rally Icon! - Ignition Episode Ep. 98

On this episode of Ignition, Carlos Lago reviews the extremely limited Subaru Impreza 22B STI. Created to celebrate the automaker's 40th anniversary and multiple consecutive World Rally Championship wins, the 22B is a wider, more powerful, and very special version of the STI. And when we found out there was one in the country, we had to drive it. How does this right-hand drive, decade-plus old car fare? This week, we find out. Ignition appears every Monday on the Motor Trend youtube channel. http://www.youtube.com/motortrend Subscribe now to make sure you're in on all the action! http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=motortrend Facebook - http://facebook.com/motortrendmag Twitter - http://twitter.com/motortrend Google+ - https://plus.google.com/1018679678590...

THE RAREST 22B OF THEM ALL
The chassis number of this incredible 22B is 000/000, so essentially, STi created 401 of these cars with the example in the video used as a demonstration car back in 1999 and this is the most exclusive chassis of them all. It is a rare treat for Subaru STi to allow anyone to have access to the car but I was able to get in and around it for this exclusive walkthrough. It has travelled 20,000 kilometers since new and is in absolutely immaculate condition. Unfortunately it will likely never turn a wheel in anger again. How does that make you feel? Should this car be confined to a museum piece or should Subaru continue to use it as a public track and event showpiece? Also in this video is a short tour of Sti Mitaka's amazing collection of rally cars including Colin McRae's 1998 3rd place finishing SanRemo Impreza plus a couple of Petter Solbergs GDB and GRB WRC rally cars as well. Mitaka Subaru is open to the public and visitors are welcome during office hours 9am-11am and 12:40pm~5pm, from Monday to Friday except public and national holidays. To access STi Mitaka, take the Orange JR Chuo Line (RAPID) from Tokyo or Tachikawa and get off at JR Musashi Sakai station. From there head to the bus stations just outside and take a bus to the International Christian University for Women and get off just outside the university - Subaru Mitaka is right next door. https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=Tokyo+Station,+Tokyo,+Japan&daddr=35.685 065,+139.538195&hl=en&sll=35.685104,139.538206&sspn=0.003651,0.008229&geoco de=FWZ0IAIdRKlUCCE47TS6SXwnACkLcJ_Y-4sYYDE47TS6SXwnAA%3B&oq=tokyo&t=h&ttype =now&noexp=0&noal=0&sort=def&mra=ls&z=13&start=0 FROM TOKYO STATION ^^





2018 Lexus LC500: Never Judge a Book by Its Cover! - Ignition Ep. 172
On this episode of Igniton presented by TireRack.com (http://www.tirerack.com), we dive into the big question surrounding the new Lexus LC: What is it? It sure looks like a sports car, so could it be a modern Toyota Supra? Then again, the badge says Lexus, so is it a cushy luxury barge like the last SC? MOTOR TREND Senior Features Editor Jason Cammisa examines the new Lexus flagship in the form of the 471hp LC500—with a special guest appearance by the hybrid V-6–powered LC500h. Ascending more than 4,000 feet, the mountain roads surrounding beautiful Palm Springs, California, provide the perfect test, separating the backroad bruisers from the boulevard cruisers. Which will it be?

Subaru R-STi - JDM vs USDM: A Friendly Rivalry -- /TUNED
In the US, we never got the best Subaru of them all, the first generation WRX coupe, getting stuck with the fun-but-not-fast 2.5RS version. One of the more popular upgrades for those cars is the "R-STi" drivetrain swap. In the season premiere of Tuned, we look at two approaches: the USDM drivetrain swap, and the JDM drivetrain swap. Which is better? You decide.
