Tommy Makinen takes the 2015 Subaru WRX STI onto the Nurburgring

The 2015 WRX STI (read about it here) is controversial, with many fans of the current generation unhappy with the sedan-style of the new generation introduced at NAIAS in Detroit.

They may be somewhat appeased when they see the awesome performance it returned on the famous Nurburgring race track. World-class race driver Tommy Makinen took the 2015 Subaru WRX STI to some extreme speeds and pushed its track handling to the limit, returning a beautiful run. You can see it below in the five minute video from Subaru talking about the new WRX.
