DW's car of the day man & Moderator
The legendary Impreza, the car that won the manufactures title in the 1997 World championship and has now returned as an updated exclusive restomod. It's the work of Banbury based Motorsport outfit Prodrive which ran Subazu's works rally team from 1990-2008. This restomod shows what this car would have been today and while much of the cars styling has remained the same, the two door saloons underpinnings have almost been re-engineered. Only 25 units will be built and supplied with UK number plates and priced at £460,000. The new model keeps it's burbling flat-four Boxer engine but with capacity raised from 2.2 to 2.5 litres and power raised to 400 BHP and 443 Nm of torque. It drives both axles through a six speed semi automatic gear box with Helical-cut gears. It also has a monstrous Garret Motorsport turbo charger, a performance inter-cooler and a Titanium and stainless steel race exhaust supplied by Akrapovic. The engines cylinder liners, pistons, con-rods and valve train are all bespoke. The P25's kerb weight is 1,200 Kg and will deliver 0-60 in 3.5 seconds. The P25 rides on McPherson strut suspension front and rear and gains machined aluminium uprights that "can be tuned for camber and geometry optimized for the wider 1770 mm track". The re imaging of this car using the latest technologies and materials, the Prodrive P25 pays homage to it's roots with very little else to match this performance on the open road.
