Subaru FIA Manufacturers 2021
A closer look at both of my 'works' liveries for the 2021 FIA Manufacturer Series.
WRX Gr.3 2021 ConceptLoosely inspired by R&D Sport's 2021 GT300 scheme along with my earlier 'GT300 2019 Concept' livery for this very car. As a change from the traditional WR Blue Pearl finish, I went with a more vibrant pearlescent blue base to bring up the pink and white stripes more. My original intention for the sides was to make them similar to the BRZ, but when I couldn't make the patterns look convincing enough I settled upon solid black blocks lining up with and concealing the rear brake ducts. These also had the effect of lining up with the rear bumper/bootlid treatment influenced by the BRZ scheme. Pink wheels were added because... why not?
The only major issue I am aware of with this livery is that in GT Sport, the bonnet stripes tend to go all fuzzy and distorted over the centre intakes. However, I am certain that this anomaly wouldn't happen if this was applied to the BRZ GT300 in real life.
WRX Gr.4 STI Pink ConceptThis is an updated version of a 'hot pink' livery I made for the Gr.4 WRX based on the classic WRC style. Originally I had intended to create a separate design with side stripes and a black and white front bumper treatment, but wasn't happy with how my ideas for those looked in the livery editor. So, the 'hot pink' design was revisited to take cues from the R&D Sport GT300 cars as well as the #59 TOWAINTEC Racing WRX from the 2018 Super Taikyu Series.
And to finish this post off, here's a bonus Scape of the Gr.3 design which I felt was too good not to share here:
