This Subaru Crosstrek Begs For Hardcore Off-Roading

Yes, this is really a Subaru Crosstrek, although we fully admit it doesn’t look much like the one sitting at your local Subie dealer. No, this one is seriously modified for one very specific purpose: off-road racing. Presenting the Baja 500-bound Subaru Crosstrek Desert Racer. The automaker has just announced it has renewed its partnership with Crawford Performance and Grabowski Brothers Racing. This Class 5 Unlimited off-road buggy (as described by Subaru) comes powered with the familiar Boxer engine and debuts a new livery in the famous blue and gold competition colors of Subaru Motorsports.
