– Commemorates 25 years since Prodrive entered its first two-door Subaru Impreza in the World Rally Championship.

– Draws inspiration from the Subaru Impreza WRX 22B STi road car.

– Powered by a 2.5-litre turbocharged flat four engine, with outputs of 300kW and 600Nm.

– Only 25 cars produced, costing $810,000.

– The engine features a different intercooler, cylinder liners, pistons, con rods, valve train and variable cam timing.

– Newly designed airbox and Akrapovic titanium and stainless-steel exhaust.

– Carbon composites used to cut total weight to 1200kg.

– Six-speed sequential paddle shift transmission.

– All-wheel drive, launch control and anti-lag systems help the Prodrive P25 accelerate from 0-100km/h in 3.5 seconds.

– Adjustable active differential and limited slip differential front and rear.

– WRC-style fly-off hydraulic handbrake that disengages the centre diff to remove drive to the rear wheels.

– Machined aluminium uprights that allow more camber and geometry tuning and a wider track.

– New Bilstein adjustable dampers, revised springs and an anti-roll bar set-up for tarmac stages.

– AP Racing brakes with 380mm discs clamped down by six-piston callipers up front and 350mm rotors with four-piston callipers on the rear axle.

– 19-inch wheels all-round that are matched with Bridgestone Potenza tyres.

– New boot lid, bonnet, roof, sills, door mirrors, front and rear fenders and bumpers, also with a rear wing very similar to the WRC car.

– Optional lightweight race seats, carbon door cards and a lithium-ion battery.

– Inside, there’s a full-width HD display offering data logging, maps for throttle response and engine modes, including anti-lag.

– The cabin is said to remain authentic to the late-1990s Impreza, combining leather, Alcantara and carbon-fibre.

– Available as a four-seater but there’s also the option of a half safety cage that sees the rear seats deleted.

– Overseeing the styling changes has been Peter Stevens, who styled the original Impreza WRC in 1997, as well as the McLaren F1.

– Prodrive is believed to have already received orders in double figures of the planned 25-car run.

– Each Prodrive P25 will be built at Prodrive’s Banbury HQ in Northamptonshire.
