Default Subaru Impreza P1 Coupe Owners Celebrate 10th Anniversary



Quote:
The first and only Subaru road car to bear the Prodrive name, the Impreza P1 coupe, is ten this year. To commemorate the event, 100 owners of the Impreza P1 made their way to Prodrive's headquarters at Banbury on Sunday 9 May. They were joined by some 300 owners of various Subaru Imprezas and more than 1,000 fans of the brand.


Considered by many as one of the most sought after limited edition Imprezas, the P1 was developed as a joint venture between Subaru UK, the Japanese firm's STI division and Prodrive, which was responsible for the automaker's WRC cars.


Based on the Japanese market Impreza Coupe, the P1 had significant enhancements engineered by Prodrive to the suspension, drivetrain, trim and aerodynamics.


It was powered by a modified version of the Impreza Turbo's boxer engine producing 280 horsepower and 363Nm of peak torque, compared to 218HP and 290Nm of the standard version


It came with Subaru's all-wheel drive system featuring a centre differential with viscous coupling while it also shared the Turbo's limited-slip rear differential.


British designer, Peter Stevens who was responsible for the McLaren F1 and Subaru WRC car developed a special front spoiler extension together with a new design of rear spoiler following extensive wind tunnel tests to reduce lift and improve balance.


The two-door car was unveiled by England's only World Rally Champion, the late Richard Burns, at the UK motorshow in 1999, and went on sale in 2000. At launch, Subaru and Prodrive planned a 500 car production run, but due to high demand a total of 1,000 examples were produced, all in the same unique blue color.

I want an SVX that color, and similarly manual-gearbox equipped... except H6 powered.

Those cars are fantastic, though.

Shame that their 10th anniversary also somewhat marks the 10th anniversary of the demise of the Subaru AWD coupe.

P1 was a great car. I'd bought some of the P1 driving lights for my old RS, right before I sold it. Hope the new owner got them in there, they sure do look sweet.

Default Three Subaru rally cars Driven/ Prodrive

Quote:
http://www.aututocar has driven three Subaru Impreza rally cars at Prodrive's Banbury headquarters, including a Colin McRae rally winner.

First up for Jamie Corstorphine was the Group N Impreza rally car, which can be bought by customers from Prodrive for 150,000. Next was a WRC car from 1997, which was developed and tested by Colin McRae to meet his specific "no understeer" requirements.

Finally, most memorably for Corstorphine was the Group A Impreza from 1996 that McRae drove to victory in the 1996 Rally Catalunya. You can see the video below or by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.
