Driver of the Week: Luccia Cafiero

What kind of car do you drive? How’d you end up with it?

2004 Subaru Impreza WRX STi. I actually wanted an Evo VIII, but at the time insurance for them was outrageous, especially for how old I was. Ended up purchasing an ’02 WRX after taking the time to find the right one. Unfortunately, I had it for about a month when someone hit me and totaled it. My insurance company gave me a lot for the WRX, more than I purchased it for and I was good friends with the previous owner of my current car (STi). He was looking to sell the STi and once I got the money for my WRX I immediately purchased my current STi. I’m glad I ended up with the Subaru over the Mitsu. The overall feel and culture of the Subaru community is what made me fall in love with the brand. I’d still actually like to have an Evo III or V in my garage sometime in the future.

What’s the next mod for your ride?

Probably changing up my Crawford AOS for an IAG AOS. After that I am probably going to look into some aero bits. This build will probably never be done and constantly change in the future as I dial things in.

What’s your favorite part you’ve purchased for your ride?

I’m pretty stoked on the Oswald Performance triangle rear brace I just purchased and recently installed. I actually purchased it due to some stress cracks that I found around my rear strut mounts. I had them welded up and did some research on some great braces to go with and ended up with this one. I’m excited to see how it changes up the overall handling of my STi out at the next track event.

What are some of your hobbies?

I’ve been a model since I was 16, which not many people know about me until they see my social media accounts. I always say it’s my alter-ego and it allows me to be girly as in everyday life I am a big tomboy. I also spend a lot of my time indulged into the car community as I help run a non-profit car club and we put on one of the largest auto shows every year in the state of Colorado. I also do a lot of yoga, as in my past I was an athlete and have a lot of injuries. Yoga helps me cope with my injuries and actually stay in pretty good shape. I do also do some YouTube reviews in my spare time that you can check out here. Besides all that I am slowly working my way to get my race license with NASA.

What’s your dream ride?

A Ferrari Enzo. I’ve always just been such a fan of how prestigious the design is and how it was built using F1 technology. Who doesn’t love the sound of a 12 cylinder mid-engine Ferrari? I’m also a huge fan of the new Aston Martin Vulcan. Now, that thing is an absolute animal!
