'Where does this bit go?'

We all know that a lot of time and money goes into running a rally team but it's not often we get to see exactly how much. Subaru has released a time lapse video of the 800 hours it takes to build an Impreza rally car.

Some people may be surprised to learn that the Subaru Rally Team USA starts with a showroom WRX STI and then strips it of everything. The engine is removed, along with the drivetrain, interior and even windscreen, before the car is fully rebuilt as a rally weapon.

Respect is due...
