It’s the middle of Betws-y-Coed late on a Wednesday morning of Rally GB week and Sebastien Ogier is waiting patiently in traffic.

This Subaru Outback Bachelor-Party Limo Is Perfectly Absurd

Get a group of car enthusiasts together, and goofy ideas flow. Ideas like, say, chopping up a Subaru Outback and a Legacy wagon you have lying around and making a limousine out of the two. You know, the sort of thing that everyone does. We first came across photos of the Subaru limo on Facebook over the weekend, and reached out to the guys that created it.

Calling pace notes with rally superstar Molly Taylor: Subaru rally experience

I’ve been lucky enough to get involved a few forms of motorsport, but one box that needed ticking was a gravel experience.

Over 85 Percent Of All Wagons Sold Here Are Subaru Outbacks

To be clear, that market is still incredibly small. The data shows that wagons represent 1.4 percent of all U.S. sales, with the Outback accounting for 1.2 percent of all U.S. sales on its own. Put another way, 85 percent… Read More →
