On its way to completing 25 years of history, the Subaru WRX 22B STi (of which there were only 424 units) got a more modern look at the hands of Prodrive. Named P25, the restomod had 25 units produced and all have already been sold for R$ 3 million each.

This model is based on the Subaru Impreza Coupe, a two-door, from 1998 and gets the classic blue paint job that was so impressive in the WRC. There is also a large air foil and the original sports car headlights. On the outside, the main update is in the 19-inch wheels, with 235/35 tires. In addition, almost all exterior body panels are now carbon fiber, as are the door trims. Your weight would be less than 1,200 kg
What stands out is the mechanics. The P25 replaces the original 280 hp 2.2 engine with a modern boxer 2.5 engine with more than 408 hp, 61.2 kgfm and modifications to the pistons, connecting rods and cylinders. The turbine is a Garrett and the exhaust system is sports, in titanium. This explains the fact that it is stronger than zero km.
It is accompanied by a six-speed automatic transmission and a launch control system, which takes advantage of the traditional wheel drive to reach 100 km / h in 3.5 seconds. There are also Bilstein shock absorbers, a limited slip differential, as well as 380mm front and 350mm rear brake discs.
“By reimagining this car using the latest technology and materials, the Prodrive P25 pays homage to its roots,” says Prodrive President and former WRC co-driver David Richards.
For him, it is certainly the fact that this Subaru Impreza is a legend of modern world sport that justifies such a high price. It is the price of exclusion.
