Subaru Desert Racer

Subaru Crosstrek Desert Racer looks nothing like any other Crosstrek XV you've ever seen. It doesn't look like any other Subaru we've ever seen.

What your looking at is the Subaru Crosstrek Desert Racer, built by Crawford Performance. This Subaru Crosstrek Desert Racer is powered by a 300HP N/A 2.5liter Subaru Boxer motor. This beast of a machine will be racing at the Baja 500, a grueling 487.11 mile race on Mexico’s Baja Peninsula.

"Subaru is best known for its success in rally, but Subaru engines have been used in off-road buggies for years,” said Quirt Crawford (Crawford Performance) . "My goal with the Crosstrek Desert Racer program was to show what was possible with a non-turbocharged boxer engine in an unlimited class, and the results so far have been very strong. I’m looking forward to bringing the car back to Baja this year and showing what it can do!”

As Subaru fans, its awesome to see the Subaru Livery flying around again. It may not be on the rally stages but we'll take it.
