You Need This: Baby’s Getaway Car

Want a sweet car that comes with some serious bragging rights? This 2006 Subaru WRX being auctioned off by Mecum is the exact same one in which you watched Baby make his first intense, sliding getaway in the movie Baby Driver. It’s been upgraded with lots of STi bits and a hydraulic handbrake for all the sideways action you could ask for. And yes, the car is street-legal.

Insider alert: GRM forum member jfryjfry—known in the real world as Jeremy Fry—was the stunt driver who made the Subaru dance in the movie. He may have a few insider tips on the car. Check out our interview with him below:

Low mileage. Adult owned...Baby driven.

I thought that car already got auctioned a few months ago for $30k. Is it back for sale again?


EDIT: Okay, one of them sold 7 months ago for $69k. Is this the same one or a different one?

In reply to NickD :

Different one. This one has a full STi drivetrain and is still all-wheel drive.

I was shocked to see that it still hadn't sold, but it turns out that it WAS sold and is being sold again:

(Edit: whoops, different car).
