The book traces the history of Subaru from their origins in 1917 as Chikuhei Nakajima established the Aircraft Research Laboratory through to post war years when the company was renamed Fuji Sangyo Co. Ltd. It then looks at the 1980s, the decade leading up to the Impreza introduction and sets the scene focusing upon the RX, XT, SVX and finally the Legacy.
From chapter 3 onwards the book concentrates upon the Impreza from the initial concept through to present day. It is here that you see the depth the book goes into with a vast range of Subaru publicity material being beautifully reproduced including Japanese sales brochures. The text comprehensively covers model details and specifications and the collaborative effort with Subaru themselves shows through. The Japanese, UK, USA and Australian markets are all looked at in detail and the yearly changes are well documented even including colour availability! As well as the road car story, the book also follows the yearly progression of the official works rally team documenting every World Championship round.
What is extremely useful is that the Japanese market is covered quite comprehensively so information regarding the cars seen as grey imports here into the UK will be most welcome. Particular focus is made on the various V-Limited models that have been of much discussion amongst enthusiasts.Read more ›
My eyesight is perfect but the the writing is so small it is difficult to read and you are unable to change the size or format.
I would love to be able to sit and read this book for long periods of time but find myself getting eye strain and headaches trying the read the small print.
Please sort out the format, it would make this book a fantastic incite into the wonderful world of Subaru.
