EXTENDED: Chris Harris vs Colin McRae's WRC Subaru Impreza | Top Gear

Going sideways takes many forms. There's the artist - Colin McRae - World Rally Champion who somehow won myriad rallies without wipers on his side windows. And then there's your mate's Corsa with milk-crates under the rear wheels. Comparing the two is like taste-testing your Nan's lasagne against a plate of cold toad. Impossible.
And that's why, in Series 28, Chris Harris presented a piece all about Colin's journey to becoming WRC champion, and not a film about your mate Reg's VXR. Here's Harris getting behind the wheel of the very car that took McRae to the podium.

  • Those were the times...I followed WRC more than F1, or any other sport in the world. Juha Kankkennen, Tomi Makkienen, Carlos Sainz...and my favourite Colin McRae.

  • It's about juuust a bit further down that point in time when cars reached their peak and everything has been going downhill ever since from a driver's skill and experience point of view. Late 90s and early 2000s had the perfect balance between analogue and digital. There were no sport and eco modes, no launch controls, no different ride settings. Just a big, nice engine coupled with a gorgeous manual gearbox and hydraulic steering. And after 2005 they all started adding electronic handbrakes, cos i guess the stick was too complicated for many people to operate, all sorts of automatic transmission, electronic steering and many completely pointless gadgets, just to justify the price. I really miss those times and cars. And i completely understand the reason why they now cost more than when the first time they appeared.

  • Sou Brasileiro Itabuna, Bahia. Na minha adolescência ganhei uma fita VHS de RALLY. Colly SUBARU 555 era o vídeo. Hoje estou com 38 anos de de idade esse carro só apaixonado pelo esse carro e equipe só vi uma vês esse carro aqui no meu estado BAHIA BRASIL na minha vida o meu sonho e compra um desse ate hoje. Resumindo AMO 555 SUBARU. Uso ate hoje a sigla 555 ou Five Five Five.

  • Colin McRae and the whole team liked the legacy better, they all agreed that the Impreza in a number of different updates would either fight them through the corners or flick out too fast and the legacy was essentially eager to do anything they wanted with no problem
