Four-wheeled rally cars from the early 21st century don’t come much more covetable than this Subaru Impreza S10, because it’s the actual car in which Petter Solberg won the 2004 Rally Japan, having dominated the event from start to finish with 11 stage wins.
It was the eighth chassis to be built by Prodrive for the ’04 season. Its first outing with Solberg was at June’s Rally Turkey where it took third. After victory in Japan, the car went back to Prodrive for a full rebuild in advance of November’s Rally Australia – from which Solberg was forced to retire.
The S10 was subsequently driven by Colin McRae in the Bettega Memorial Rallysprint, and again rebuilt by Prodrive before being sold at the end of 2004 to a private team.
