Subaru Impreza WRX STI PPP 2003 Hillclimb / Track car / Rally car
Welcome to the listing of my very special and rare Subaru Impreza WRX STI 'Prodrive Performance Pack', professionally built competition / investment car.
Built over 18 months by Subaru Specialists, TDR (Thwaites Development Racing), In Warwick, using mainly RCM (Roger Clark Motorsports) components throughout, at vast expense (over £40k).
Essentially, the car has been built to take part in: Time Attack, Hill Climbing, Sprints, Track events, whilst remaining a very 'comfortable' (it actually is..although a bit noisy inside, from the fuel pumps mainly!) and incredibly quick road car.
It has lived inside a 'carcoon' at my home since being completed, only covering 700 miles in 6 years! (I know what a waste, but it's been loved not abused!).
It was built to give outstanding performance coupled with strength / reliability and longevity. I could have 'chased' power numbers, but decided that could always come later. Frankly, at 380bhp on Thwaites Development Racing's own Dyno (very accurate on figures), this machine is plenty quick enough!
For sure, for a few hundred pounds, the power could easily be increased to over 450, but for the little use that it has had, I have not really needed to. (upgrade FMIC and add tune for 20% methanol).
Handbuilt by Mark Thwaites (himself) at TDR, Warwick.
We wanted the engine to 'rev', so maintained 2.1 litre

Use it, but cherish it, and this is a proper investment opportunity.
