it's really odd that subaru dropped their "new" nose already; i never had a problem with it personally, but i guess i'm the odd one out <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.germancarfans.com/images/forums/nixweiss.gif" BORDER="0">

This is not a Subaru project, its a Prodrive project that would use Subaru mechanicals...

P2 will be unveiled by Prodrive chairman, David Richards, on the Prodrive stand on the first morning of the Autosport International show, Thursday 12 January.<p>From <A HREF="http://www.RacewayNews.net" TARGET="_blank">http://www.RacewayNews.net</A><p>bye<p>gio

The size of an MGF, its 345bhp tweaked Impreza engine propels it to 174mph and from 0-60mph in just 3.8 seconds. The car also features Prodrives own anti-lag and active torque dynamics systems.<p>Richards says the project, which only received the green light in March, has been a rewarding exercise for his staff. One of the P2 teams biggest achievements, apart from meeting the schedule, has been making a car that looks right, despite all of todays limitations, said Richards. Ive learned a lot about the constraints on designers in this process.<p>The Peter Stevens-styled P2 is set to start testing in February but Richards insists there are no plans for a production run. The idea of the P2, apart from showcasing our engineering abilities, was to demonstrate to the staff what they can achieve when they are pulling together on one project, he said. Im confident it has achieved that.<br></TD></TR></TABLE><p><IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.com//Car/Subaru/Impreza/2.0WRXStiAWDProdrive4drSaloon/101661158591.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.com//Car/Subaru/Impreza/2.0WRXStiAWDProdrive4drSaloon/101661158592.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.com//Car/Subaru/Impreza/2.0WRXStiAWDProdrive4drSaloon/101661158593.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.com//Car/Subaru/Impreza/2.0WRXStiAWDProdrive4drSaloon/10166120110.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.com//Car/Subaru/Impreza/2.0WRXStiAWDProdrive4drSaloon/10166120111.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.com//Car/Subaru/Impreza/2.0WRXStiAWDProdrive4drSaloon/10166120112.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p><IMG SRC="http://www.autocarmagazine.com//Car/Subaru/Impreza/2.0WRXStiAWDProdrive4drSaloon/10166120123.jpg" BORDER="0"> <p>

Odd looking, but cool. It would cost your firstborn son to buy it though if they did build it. They did do a terrific job though.

So THAT'S what happened to all those MG XPower SVR parts.

is the point to show that prodrive might be doing some coachwork in the future?

01-12-2006, 07:12 PM
its unique that prodrive took not only the engine but also the dashboard and various other parts from impreza as well
