Hey Soobers:

Does anyone remember what year Subaru went to I think Talladega and ran a couple of Legacy's for 24 hours at 132mph. can't seem to find it on the web. Anyone remember this? Do you have a link?

Cheers,
Gareth

Nope this took place long before the Forrester came along, Saab had done it the year before, and Soob wanted t make a point.

Three Legacy 2.0 Turbos shattered a bunch of previous records.

wasn't there a time awhile back when the impreza held the world record for the fastest production automobile.i think it was back in the early 90's.

i may be wrong but i could of sworn,cause i remember rubbing it in to some of the subie haters i used to work with.

i think it was at the salt flats?

(or i could be completely wrong,who knows.gonna have to do a search now)

The 1st gen Legacy set the first speed endurance record for Subaru and then there were a couple more. A turbo diesel Mercedes E-class recently set a new one.
