The Subaru Impreza WRX is an obviously 'tooned' version of the popular import and #6 of 10 vehicles in the Torpedoes series. The Torpedo style was a new cartoon style introduced in 2005 and depicts a car as a skinny Torpedo like shape with outboard wheels. These unique vehicles should perform well on track sets but the exposed wheels make them more susceptible to bending axles. They're probably better suited for gravity-driven tracks than Wall Tracks or tracks with a Booster. This series appears to be loosely based off of the 2003 Kawasaki ZXR-9 Concept. Re-releases of Torpedoes vehicles have been somewhat limited, if existent at all.
The Subaru WRX has come out in the following 1/64 scale versions:
