A Bug’s Life: Chris Shuemake’s RHD WRX [2016 Edition]

It’s been three years since I’ve last shot Chris’ immaculate Subaru, so I thought it was time for a refresher. One of the things that I love about this build is that it’s always changing and gets better every time these changes are made. I know Chris has had this car for years and it’s really great to see someone put so much time and effort into the same car for such a long time. Most builders these days tend to just put mods together, call it done, and sell the car. It’s really an art when it comes to building cars because anybody can throw parts together, but it really takes time and knowledge to refine your build to make each phase better and better.

One of the newest addition to this Bugeye is the extremely rare Mature front bumper.

Other notable parts that complete the front end include JDM projectors and the infamous ARC intercooler.

The C-West side skirts surprising matches pretty well with the Mature front.

I love all the details of this car like the Spec-C roof vent.

Moving towards the back end is again some new additions starting with the Mature diffuser, and also the Varis carbon spoiler. And to the trained Subaru eyes, tail lamps from a 04-07 generation Impreza gives this car an updated look.

Bride buckets adorn the fully converted RHD interior.

Center pods with Defi gauges are a must for any Subarus.

A gorgeous Nardi steering wheel wraps up the long list of interior upgrades.

AWD Bruiser

Finally getting a chance to put these shots up on the blog after over a month of sitting in the hard drive. This set is relatively short compared to others as the sun began to set during this shoot but the owner, Gabe, was very enthusiastic about this shoot so I had him re-position the car as quickly as possible to maximize the angles of shots. With that said, enjoy these few after the break.

I love the refinement and aggressiveness of this STi, and of course, the use of authentic pieces is a definite plus.

I love the aerodynamic pieces that compliments the lines of the STi, especially the Voltex rear diffuser and spoiler combo.

The back end is definitely my favorite aspect of this car.

Work Kiwami wrapped with Bridgestone Potenzas makes for some nice upgraded footwork.

Carbon STi

Ok, this STi is not really full carbon, but the carbon wrap is still pretty sick. Normally I’m not a huge fan of “faux” carbon but I think it actually works pretty well with this car. I love that this car has a mixture of GT and rally feel to it, and those gold SLs really sets the car off amazingly well.
