Gymkhana Subaru WRX STI: Hooning for Bread

Do you guys remember the Subaru BRZ Gymkhana video where a man wakes up, sees his sleeping wife and decides to drive his coupe to the limit just to get a bottle of milk for breakfast. Well now there's a new one, and it features a much more exciting car.

Subaru Spain is responsible for this video, the most pointless but awesome promo of all time to showcase the new WRX STI. This is a brand new all-wheel drive performance sedan with rally breeding. What did they use it for? To get bread, of course. Because you can't have a hearty breakfast without fiber.

Subaru didn't have to do this, since the WRX STI has the sort of performance that sells itself. However, we're glad they did. This is pretty much how every man things and acts. His moments behind the wheel are usually the most exciting of the day and he relishes the chance to go for a drive, even if it's pointless.

But let's examine the video for a little bit. The driver of the STI is clearly giving it his all and probably has racing experience. The stunts are well executed and include plenty of tire smoke, opposite lock and Gymkhana action. Our favorite part has to be the donuts done around a very calm baker. However, there is one point in which it seems like he damages the rear bumper on that fence just a tiny bit.

The Euro-spec Subaru WRX STI delivers 309 PS from its 2.5-liter DOHC boxer engine. Power is delivered though a short-shift manual to an all-wheel drive system that rockets the car to 100 km/h in 4.9 seconds and can handle gravel and asphalt with equal ease.
