You’re restless, tossing and turning in bed, dreaming about that perfect drift. Turning the wheel to full opposite lock, you wake up, heart pounding, cautious not to wake your partner. You can still feel the hum of the boxer engine as you stagger into the kitchen and discover there’s no more bread.
That’s how the latest Gymkhana-inspired ad from Subaru of Spain begins, as the protagonist leaps into action behind the wheel of a blue 2015 Subaru WRX STI, burning rubber and taking names on his way to some leavened comestibles. The mission is simple: return home with a fresh-baked baguette before his partner, none the wiser, sits down to breakfast.
Behind the wheel of the blue-pearl 2015 Subaru WRX STI, our famished friend slides through turns like a practiced professional, making the most of the Subie’s highly capable suspension and all-wheel-drive setup. With 305 hp of turbocharged 2.0-liter power, he tears through dirt and gravel on the way to the baker’s shop, helping the 2015 Subaru WRX STI circle the baguette-toting gentleman twice before emerging out of the epic powerslide with bread in hand.
Winding through windmill-lined streets and skidding through tight construction zones, the 2015 Subaru WRX STI finally arrives back home in the nick of time. Still stirring, crusty-eyed, and bleary, the woman has no idea what it took for her to breakfast to come together.
The video is the second in a series produced by Subaru’s Spanish arm, the first featuring the same driver speeding through a Gymkhana course in a Subaru BRZ to retrieve a cold jug of milk. We’ve said before how the 2015 Subaru WRX STI is well-suited to marginally sane/slightly unhinged personalities, and clearly that’s not exclusive to America. Take a look at both early-morning Subaru escapades in the videos below.
