Prodrive P25 races up the hill at Goodwood making sweet four-course boxer music

A true rallying icon, the Subaru Impreza 22B gets a makeover as Prodrive unveils the P25 as a tribute to the legend. The ultra-limited special edition celebrated its dynamic debut this week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed ​​where the restomod climbed the famous hill to the delight of the public. Beneath the familiar skin is a stock WRX two-door chassis, but everything else has been revamped.

The flat-four engine sounds great, and it puts out over 400 horsepower and ample torque of 600 Newton-meters (443 pound-feet) in a car that weighs less than 1,200 kilograms (2,645 pounds). The uphill course was obviously too short to exploit the full capabilities of the P25, but Prodrive claims its road-legal WRC machine has supercar levels of acceleration sprinting to 62mph (100kph) in less than three and a half seconds.

Most of the body panels are made of carbon composite to reduce weight, while the engine is linked to a six-speed semi-automatic transmission featuring a launch control system derived from WRC rally cars. Needless to say, the P25 has all-wheel drive and comes with plenty of high-end goodies ranging from a Garrett turbo and Bilstein shocks to AP Racing brakes and an adjustable active center differential complemented by front limited-slip differentials. and back.

As a reminder, Prodrive is converting 25 cars for a whopping £460,000 ($564,000) a pop, and that’s before applicable UK Value Added Tax (VAT). The first deliveries to customers should begin before the end of the year. Those willing to spend a not-so-small fortune on the P25 can order the car without a rear seat. Instead, the motorsport specialist can install a partial roll cage.
