Supra Pro in yellow suitable for the thread? Lovely looker in the flesh.
Nothing worse than subtle yellow, if your bold enough to go yellow, you have to go full daffodil

I think that picture washed the colour out a bit TBH.



Edit: it’s thumb snap, kills the colour, it’s much brighter in my pictures.

JCT Leeds recently
Best thing they've had in ages.
Enjoyed seeing it on my commute each day until recently.

Its not the brightness. The colour is too flat. It needs to shine. IMHO.

Saw this parked on a quiet side street in a Surrey village today - words / photos cannot describe how clean it was, even the brightwork was in showroom condition!

I don't know Subarus, but this looked pretty special.
Is it?

Even with my limited Subaru knowledge I would bet a snatter to a spittle that it's a Prodrive Type UK STI with an aftermarket wing.

It's not often that a Carrera GT won't be the most expensive car in the photo!

Slight tangent, I assumed bigmotoringworld is a generic car marketplace, then I spot these... They took them as trade in? ​​​​​​​

I'd heard from someone local that the owner of Big Motoring World had a white Veyron after I saw it near Snodland in Kent.
Maybe the Chiron is his too..?
