What we think is probably the first manufacturer supported US tune of the new Subaru WRX sedan was spotted on the 405 near Irvine by a reader over at Fast Lane Daily with a quick eye and an even quicker shutter. The tip-off that it's something special is the manufacturer plate in the pic, as well as the manny-plated Legacy GT chase car. The WRX features the carbon fiber hood and black wheels we've come to expect from the Japanese tuner crowd.


The badging on the side of the car shows a mix of popular import brands and sube-tuners. Given all the Crawford Performance badges (and their history with Subaru) we're going to go out on a limb and say this is a Crawford Racing Subaru tuner. (Thanks to Fast Lane Daily fan Fred K).
