I’ve seen exactly one Subaru GL10 (Leone) at a car show in the time I’ve been doing this site, and it’s this very one. These are fairly rare cars in general so coming across one modified is quite rare.
Never mind one modified as ridiculously (yet subtly) as this one.
Well, ind of subtle anyway, the inter cooler in the front end is I suppose a bit of a dead giveaway to this cars inner workings.
Under the hood, today, is an EJ22T block with JDM V9STI heads. It’s also got a twin-scroll BorgWarner S300SX-E turbo set up. Once a front wheel drive only car it’s now all wheel drive courtesy of a JDM STI 6-speed transmission.
