At this year's SEMA (http://autoblog.com/category/sema) show, Subaru (http://autoblog.com/make/subaru) will be showing off its latest crop of Genuine and Performance Tuning parts, as well as the newly refreshed 2011 Impreza WRX (http://autoblog.com/model/wrx) and WRX STI (http://autoblog.com/model/wrx+sti). Six show cars will be on display, including Tommi Makinen's record-breaking WRX STI that lapped the Nürburgring in just 7:55:00 (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/06/09/video-2011-wrx-sti-sedan-runs-ring-in-7-55-quickest-ever-for/) (pictured).

In addition to Makinen's STI, Travis Pastrana's New Year's Eve jump car will be showcased, as well as some Imprezas tuned by the folks at Get More Gs, Kicker Audio and K&N Performance. Subaru's national accessory manager, Charlie Fishman, says that the automaker "is having a record year for Subaru Genuine Parts and SPT accessory sales," thanks in part to the introduction of the new WRX and WRX STI. For the full details, follow the jump for Subaru's press blast.

Id love to see those cars in person. But I'm sorry that travis pastrana jump thing was the lamest stunt i have ever seen. Totally not worth the hype nor the 30 sec of my life it wasted. + I like how all the read bull ads edit out the fact that he crashed his car at the end.
