Ken Block reveals Subaru-based TRAX STI, a true snow tank, video included |

I’m sure most of you have heard about Ken Block, who is a popular rally driver slash stunt man, collaborating deeply with Subaru and promoting the fabulous WRX STI Impreza model.

But up until now he has only modified the model for rally stages, fitting special performance parts and regular things you might expect on a car. Now though, it seems he found himself surrounded by snow, and deemed that a Subaru might do great on said surface.

Not content with fitting snow tires or anything like that, Block decided to take a rally-spec WRX to Vermont SportsCar where its power was boosted to 400 HP, saw Group-N dampers fitted and, just as a last minute adjustment, had its wheels replaced with cat tracks.

That’s right, as you can see in the image above, Block now has the TRAX STI, a true Subaru tank for driving in snowy conditions. If you want to check out the vehicle in action (trust me, you do) hit the jump to see a video of it.
