Carbon Fiber Widebody GC8 Subaru

This is one I stumbled upon by accident, but I’m glad I did. This dark green GC8 Subaru is certainly more than meets the eye upon closer inspection. Owned and built by Jari Kihlman out in Finland, the Subie boats a whole lot of carbon fiber - including the widebody and dash - and makes a potent 577 whp while weighing just 1007 kg (or 2,220 pounds), and features a Modena 5-speed sequential transmission. We’re not 100% sure what his plans are for the car, but we’re glad we found this early, and I really love what’s going on with the interior on this build. We’ll definitely be checking back in.
