This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:
A road car that's capable of winning the World Rally Championship. That's what Subaru aimed to create when it introduced the outrageous Impreza WRX in February 1992. Initially available only in Japan and just wearing a four-door saloon bodyshell, the Impreza WRX was later also sold in five-door estate guise from October 1992. Equipped with a two-litre, 16-valve horizontally-opposed four-cylinder "boxer" engine, turbocharged to generate a mammoth 237bhp at 6000rpm, the WRX saloon was a scorcher from the off(the estate however was mildly detuned to give 217bhp). But as Subaru's rally programme gathered in pace, so too did the development of the WRX in order to meet rallying's regulations and allow modifications to also be made to the World Rally Car. Hence even more power was found in October 1994, with a performance boost to 256bhp at 6500rpm, it doesn't end there. Yet another evolution in September 1996 saw the WRX produce 276bhp at 6500rpm. Initially transmission choice was limited to a five-speed manual gearbox, a four-speed automatic also being added in October 1993. The power is delivered to all four wheels by an advanced development of Subaru's proven four-wheel-drive system, incorporating a viscous limited-slip differential on the manual gearbox car that allows power distribution to be varied between the front and rear wheels as and where extra traction is required. Braking is provided by enlarged discs on all wheels. Bearing in mind its close motorsport heritage, the WRX provides a hardcore driving experience on the road. Gear ratios are extremely low for maximum acceleration away from the line and the suspension is both lowered and stiffened. An even more dedicated version of the saloon WRX can also be had called the RA-Type, with all luxury-orientated equipment inside (including air-conditioning, stereo, electric windows and sound deadening) discarded in order to reduce weight and make the RA-Type WRX the ideal base model for competitive racing.
This car can be bought at the Subaru Used Cars Dealership for around 18,800 Credits. The car's name is listed as Subaru IMPREZA Sedan GT '97 in the PAL version of the game.
