We were really excited when we started reading Subaru's latest SEMA press release, as it listed things like a 400-hp WRX STI, the word's “rally-prepped” and “Ken Block.” That was all well and good, but entirely too normal for a SEMA show car. And that's what we discovered upon continued reading as we downloaded the solitary photo from Subaru's media site. Yikes!

Along with all that good stuff, is a truly SEMA-rific TRAX system, provided by Mattracks, which replaces the car's tires for some even more serious off-roading.

The car was built by Subaru Rally Team USA's technical partner, Vermont SportsCar, and features a stripped down shell, roll cage, carbon fiber door panels and carbon/Kevlar Recaro racing seats with a HANS device. It makes 400-hp and 400 ft-lbs of torque and uses a KAPS 5-seed gearbox.

Even sillier than the TRAX system is the fact that the car comes with its own sleigh.

Subaru says the WRX STI TRAX is just in time for the holidays. We're pretty sure this monstrosity just officially marked the start of SEMA.
