prodrive's p25 will be an impreza 22b revival with 400 hp
Prodrive

U.K. motorsport firm Prodrive is responsible for some of the coolest Subaru rally cars on the planet. It plans to pay tribute to those cars by releasing a limited run of what it calls the P25, a lightweight, modernized, high-horsepower GC8-generation Impreza coupe.

Like the legendary 22B on which it’s inspired, the P25 will use a 2.5-liter boxer-four engine that sends power to all four wheels. Thanks to modern tech and tuning ability, Prodrive claims the engine will make “in excess of 400 hp,” a big step up from the 22B’s 300-hp rating. Instead of a traditional manual gearbox, the P25 will use a sequential transmission with paddle shifters. It’ll also be incredibly lightweight thanks to extensive use of carbon fiber.

Prodrive has yet to release any photos of the P25, but did show off a single sketch of the car. It shares much of its design with the 22B, but sports a lower stance, bigger wheels, larger brakes, and rally-inspired side mirrors.

“The original 22B Impreza is considered the most iconic of Subarus and highly sought after,” Prodrive chairman David Richards said in a statement. “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.”

Prodrive will reveal the P25 in June at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. The rally shop plans to build just 25 examples and is now taking “expressions of interest” for those who want to get in line. Pricing has not yet been revealed, though considering all of the high-end custom work done, don’t expect it to be cheap.
