VT15XV – Vermont SportsCar 2016 Subaru XV Rally Car

Vermont SportsCar designed a bespoke Subaru XV rally car (known as Crosstrek in the USA) specifically to meet the Chinese Rally Championship regulations.  Subaru Rally Team China first utilized the car in 2016 where it took team driver HanHan to multiple victories, winning the 2016 Drivers Championship.  In 2017 the team introduced a second XV and achieved much success including earning the 2017 Manufacturers’ championship.  The XV was based off of Vermont SportsCar’s VT15r STI rally car with some minor specification changes specific to the Chinese regulations.
