Tamiya Subaru Impreza WRC 2001 Great Britain - T24250
When Richard Burns earned his first Drivers' Championship Title in the 2001 World Rally Championship season, it would mark the first time that an English man would become champion in WRC history. The car Richard Burns drove in this brilliant season was the Impreza WRC 2001. The 2001 Impreza adopted a four-door sedan body and was highlighted by compound headlights, spoiler attached to the extreme rear and blister-style fenders. Based on race feedback from previous Imprezas, various modifications were made to improve reliability. The well-balanced horizontally opposed 4-cylinder turbo engine underwent extensive tuning to boost responsiveness, and major progress was made with electronic control of the semi-automatic transmission and front, centre, and rear differential gearing.
