The 2005 Subaru Legacy, Legacy Outback and Legacy GT

 Ride and Drive!!

5/17/04 - Las Vegas Motor Speedway

I was invited to participate in the Launch and ride and drive of the new 2005 Subaru Legacy, GT & Outbacks.This was an absolute scream! Event was held in Las Vegas of all places, and I received the opportunity to thrash a few of these cars at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway....

all I can honestly say is... WOW.... The GT is just an amazing car!!!

Subaru has really outdone themselves with this one!!!

Enjoy the photos and EMAIL ME with questions..


2005 Subaru Legacy GT Turbo :o}!

05 Legacy GT Drive

First we got to thrash the GT's round a road course

Every one of us drove, seated next to an instructor.... most of whom were from the UK and abroad

All of the GT's I drove, even the wagons - handled very very neutrally. Great feeling car

LED flasher built in

Another of the events, was a ride-along around the oval track (nascar)

We rode with the instructors... speeds ave 120mph

GT line up...

this was fun but a bit hairy for me as i'm used to being in charge ;o)


2005 Subaru Legacy Outback!

Outback street drive... we drove the Outback a few miles on tarmac, with a short jaunt off road

there were about 18 cars... :)

Handled nicely, esp at higher speeds off road ;)

suspension and ground clearance did their job. i was impressed.

Outback XT (2.5L)

This one has all the accessories...

Roof racks, bike rack, trailer hitch tons more...

Tonneau cover and dog guard can now be used at the same time!!! yay!!! finally eh? :)
