The legendary Subaru Impreza 22B – essentially a road-going version of the car that won the firm the Manufacturers’ title in the 1997 World Rally Championship – has returned as an updated, ultra exclusive and highly charged resto-mod for 2022.
Called the P25, the new arrival is the work of Banbury-based motorsport outfit Prodrive, which successful ran Subaru’s works rally team from 1990-2008.
It arrives 25 years on from the introduction of the Prodrive-engineered Impreza 22B, of which just 424 were ever built. The firm says it has “reimagined what this car would have been today”, and as such while the styling is left largely untouched, the two-door saloon’s construction and underpinnings have been almost completely re-engineered.
