nice! Subaru rally car with the name Makinen on it. yes, it's the first car he switched from mitsubishi lancer and too sad from that era onwards the Evo Lancer WRC glory days are over.

thanks Andrew! A 1:64 version by Cararama? Now that is very interesting! :-)


Thanks also Daniel! Yes, you're correct. The switch kinda ended the lancer's era in winning championships :-(

the era of lancers ended with the evo vii which was proven too heavy for wrc's :(

Yeah, very nice model. This "bug-eye" version looks more agressive than next two generations. Invite me soon, I will present this car in two road bodies :) Greetings.
