Well you already have to have a WRX...
And if you did the work yourself.

Okay maybe not 50k. But 75k, damn right.
And no it still will NOT be a 1:1, but close enough so that it does not matter.

250k of that 500k is just to have the word Prodrive on it.

Carbon, yeah, this could be expensive, but probably off molds they have.

I could see this being done for around 50k.



Soo, the suspension they use is just the run of the mill stuff I could get online? Or a higher dollar version.



Wider tires warrant that much bulge in the fenders?
Tunable anti-lag is waaaay out of my realm to contest.

The engine. How much did the WRC engine cost? I am sure it's not up to that fully; but, would they have parts for the 2.5 just lying around?
Again, that transmission.
Yeah. Sure. Maybe a lot of that price is just fluff; but, duh......


I've just heard several people(not just on here) say they can make a WRC car for well under $100K and I laugh because if that were true, I'm sure the WRC cars wouldn't be soo expensive.



Didn't every 22B sell for more than $100K when they first sold? Inflate that to todays money and how far off is this....being that much better?

I like how their solution to refreshing the old interior pieces was to cover absolutely everything in alcantara

Interior: Awful.

I really do not care for Alcantara. It's always been seen as upscale, but I've always viewed it as faux-scale. The aftermarket has especially cheapened it.

LOLOL... Again, for reference This is a Singer Interior, which this car is competing directly against..





Both of these Singers are cheaper than 500k price tag.

I would really expect so much more from Prodrive...

Interior looks like a car I would see at Walmart parking lot car meet up in 2003.

To be fair, I wouldn't expect anything like a Singer interior in any form of Impreza/WRX. But I suppose I never imagined what a half million dollar Impreza might look like before now.

GT3 race cars cost less. Pretty weird.

you make a fair point, bud. They do not have good interior bones to start with I suppose.

Maybe this is the quintessential example of lipstick on a pig?

I don't think that is a good excuse.

Take Automobili Amos and what they did with the Delta Integrale.



It had a cheap 90's italian interior and this what they came up with:






That is night and day compared to the P25, with a similar price.

I'm nowhere near being in a financial place to purchase one of these, but this is pretty underwhelming considering the other vehicles available for similar prices.

The interior is very disappointing. I thought they would copy a 22B interior. It looks like they just covered a Ver 3 STi interior in black alcantra. Where is the color (ex blue or red)? Where is the carbon fiber bits? That bottom center console looks like an aftermarket unit. I hope this is not the finished car.

Similar in execution to the P2.





Not unexpected considering the starting point and past experience with the GC.

That P2 actually has a modified GD interior. Note the vents, gauge cluster, steering wheel.

Having own both styles of first gen Impreza interiors, I personally believe the first interior to be the best design. Fewer hard plastics, tends to rattle less, softer materials in several places, prettier swooping design. I think Prodrive made the right choice there, but they needed to add some color and better materials other than Alcantara.

I like how pretty much no one's paying attention as it drives by. I feel like if it were a legit 22B then more people would be watching it do its thing.
