PRODRIVE REDEFINES AN ICON WITH THE P25

25 years since the first Subaru Impreza World Rally Car (WRC) made its winning debut on the stages of the World Rally Championship, the Prodrive P25 recaptures the essence of that very Impreza, while taking inspiration from the 22B arguably the most iconic Impreza.

Modern technology ensures the P25 is more powerful, lighter and with better handling.

This time it will have a 2.5 litre flat four ‘boxer’ engine producing in excess of 400 bhp, a six speed semi-automatic paddle-shift gearbox and, due to extensive use of carbon fibre, a lightweight chassis.

The P25 will be produced in a limited run of just 25 cars, all built at Prodrive’s headquarters in Banbury, UK.

Peter Stevens, who styled the original Impreza WRC for Prodrive, has defined the design, while the engineering of the car has been overseen by Prodrive technical director, David Lapworth, who was responsible for the original Impreza WRC.

The P25 is the idea of Prodrive chairman, David Richards. He said: “The original 22B Impreza is considered the most iconic of Subarus and highly sought after. We wanted to enhance everything that made that car so special by applying the very latest technology to create our own modern interpretation of a car that’s established a place in motoring history.”

The Prodrive P25 will make its debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in June. Prodrive is now taking expressions of interest and the first of the 25 cars will be delivered to customers later this year.

A throwback for the fans...

 

...6 speed semi-automatic gearbox

 

...25 produced

 

I know, super disappointing. I guess they think "the fans" means "25 super rich assholes".

 

The upside is that they are perpetuating the desirability of the chassis... and maybe one day it will reach the levels of the mark 1 escort chassis,

and someone starts to produce them again, and in an affordable manner.

To me it looks just like Colin's 22b that they sent up the hill earlier in the day... minus roof scoop and stickers. 

 

I still want one. In white.

I'm sure they will accomodate you!

 

I must admit after seeing that video it is much cooler than I had expected... way nicer than the 22B.  Not as cool as a genuine WRC version though!
