Subaru and Tennis Legends Team Up To Raise Funds

 SUBARU OF AMERICA, INC. (SOA) created this one-of-a-kind 2002 Subaru Autograph Edition Impreza WRX in Blaze Yellow as a fund-raiser. Proceeds will benefit patient care and research at the University of Washington Medical Center Breast Care and Cancer Research Center in Seattle. The Autograph Edition WRX, inspired by Martina Navratilova, longtime Subaru driver and spokesperson, was sold at auction Oct. 6, 2001, at a black-tie event at the PRO Sports Club in Seattle.

Navratilova has worked closely with SOA in support of philanthropic causes since 1995. “The Autograph Edition is a great example of our extraordinary partnership,” she said. The vehicle includes signatures from tennis players Andre Agassi, Jennifer Capriati, Jim Courier, Lindsay Davenport, Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Billie Jean King, John McEnroe, Patrick McEnroe, Martina Navratilova, Patrick Rafter, Pete Sampras, Jonathan Stark, Serena Williams and Venus Williams.
