Aerodynamically honed by Peter Stevens of McLaren F1 fame and based around a lighter and stiffer two-door bodyshell, the exclusive Prodrive One, abbreviated to P1, had more in common with the legendary 22B than its lesser four- door Subaru Impreza WRX siblings. All were painted in Sonic Blue and using the WRX STi Type R as a base, Prodrive engineers installed the anti-roll bars from the European-specification Impreza Turbo, along with firmer springs and shock absorbers, to create a suspension set up better- suited to continental roads. The cars also featured ABS, as well as the Peter Stevens- designed anthracite OZ Racing wheels, front spoiler and rear wing. The P1 is powered by a revised version of the rally engine with re-calibrated electronics and develops 280bhp, 69bhp more than the standard Impreza Turbo. With a performance exhaust, quick-shift gear linkage, 17” titanium-finish alloy wheels and a rally proven suspension set-up, the Impreza P1 limited run of 1,000 examples gained an instant cult following. As an eminently drivable sports-saloon, very few examples of the P1 are available in today’s market that do not have six- figure odometer readings, accident damage or heavy modifications. Offered fresh to market from long-term ownership, this P1 was first registered on 11th August 2000. Presenting beautifully, the Sonic Blue paintwork still retains a deep gloss and is uniform across the entire car. It retains its original stereo, fog light surrounds as well as orange front lights. It has been fully treated underneath and has not been driven in winter conditions for 13-years. Indicating just under 50,000 miles from new, the Impreza is accompanied by a comprehensive history file including 27 service stamps in the book. Also in the file are receipts and invoices supporting the car’s regular maintenance along with spare keys and manuals and a copy of the 200th edition of Evo magazine which features the car. In preparation for the sale, the P1 has had a new MOT and cambelt service less than 500 miles ago. The private registration number, P1 RGY, will remain with the car and does form part of the sale. With soaring prices of Japanese domestic market cars, and 22Bs heading well north of £100,000 in recent years, this smart Impreza P1 seems exceptionally good value in comparison and is ready to carry on doing the things that Imprezas do best. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own one of these coveted pieces of UK Subaru history. Offered fresh to market from long-term ownership, this magazine-featured P1 has covered less than 50,000 miles and has 27 stamps in the book. More Details Lot 722 Bid On Lot 722
