Subaru's tribute to Burns
22 November 2006

Short of winning every rally in the championship, Subaru has come up with a pretty decent way of commerating rally hero Richard Burns - this tasty looking special-edition Impreza WRX STI.

Called the RB320, the limited-number car comes only in black, and is packed with kit, including the Prodrive Performance Pack. That means it packs 316bhp (320ps) and 332lb ft, so it will hot 60mph in 4.8sec, and 100mph in 12.2sec. It's also lowered even more than usual, and comes with 18in wheels. There are also a few interior tweaks, including an RB320-branded gearknob.

The first car is being raffled by our sister magazine Autosport. All proceeds will go to the Richard Burns Foundation, which helps those suffering from serious injury and illness.

Burns, who was most famously associated with Subaru, died of cancer last November at the age of 32.
