Engine-wise, the facelifted C4 is now available with two new petrol engines co-developed with the BMW Group. It is the first Citroen to be fitted with engines from this family. The C4’s VTi 120 normally aspirated engine replaces the 1.6i 16V and has a capacity of 1.6-liters developing 120Hp while the THP 150 that will replace the 2.0i 16V, is a 1.6-liter turbocharged unit producing 150Hp.
In order to pay a fitting tribute to Colin McRae, the Subaru community is planning to gather a world record 1,000 Imprezas at Prodrive, the home of Subaru World Rally Team, where Colin spent the most successful years of his rallying career, first winning the British Rally Championship in a Subaru Legacy in 1991 and 1992 and then becoming Britain’s first world rally champion in 1995. -Continued
A convoy of more than 1,000 Imprezas led by McRae’s 1995 World Rally Championship-winning Impreza 555, will leave Colin’s home town of Lanark at 10 am on Saturday 30 August arriving at Prodrive on the same day.
On Sunday August 31, after setting a world record for a gathering of Subarus, the group’s aim is to then set a world record for a parade of Subarus, as all the cars circulate around the 2 mile test track. As a final mark of respect, Subaru owners will park up on the mile-long straight to spell out the name Colin McRae in letters more than 100 feet tall and visible to anyone flying into nearby Birmingham International airport.
The McRae Gathering is only open to Subarus and to take part, all cars must bear the special ‘McRae Gathering’ plate. There is an entry charge of £10 for each car with all proceeds going to the McRaes’ nominated charities.
