The new Subaru Impreza 2007.
Subaru Rally Team revealed the new 2007 Impreza WRC Car on Friday 2nd March with just seven days before the Rally of Mexico. Petter Solberg and Chris Atkinson have big hopes for the new Impreza after there not so impressive 2006 season in which they could not even winning a single rally.

As the teams left their English base heading towards what will hopefully be a competitive weekend for rally Mexico they released details of the 2007 Impreza that will be competing for the rest of the season.

From the outside the New Impreza doesnít look that different. Most of the work has been carried out on improving the performance and creating a car with more balanced tyre wear. The team have worked with engineers and designers in Japan focussing on weight distribution, suspension and differential set ups and new dampers have been used to improve road holding.

The work on the new engine has been aimed at weight reduction. The work has included producing a new intercooler design with a turbo air inlet now going through the bonnet scoop.

The FIAís rules about aerodynamics have led to the removal of several apertures on the front and side of the bodywork which have been partially blanked off. The airflow under the bonnet now emerges through air exit holes on the side rather than in the middle of the bonnet.

The Imprezaís hydraulic control of the centre differential has been redesigned to improve its effectiveness and the exhaust has been moved to exit out of the rear bumper.

The non-stop Subaru team have already started to design the 08 car but no decisions of when it will make its debut have been decided.
