Back in May, we reported about a tuned Subaru Impreza STi that lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in record time, becoming the fastest Impreza to lap the world-famous racetrack. The team behind the record-breaking car, Revolution Motorstore, built it with utmost attention to detail and total commitment, with an aim to set a new lap record for a Subaru Impreza.
The folks behind this awesome, record-setting project now plan to sell the Subaru Impreza "Project STi ". An advertisement was recently put up Revolution Motorstore official Facebook page. "Project STi" is now up for sale at £42,995 which is just over $70,000.
That’s a pretty steep price, sure, but keep in mind that this is no ordinary Impreza. The tuner went to great lengths in order to make it competitive. Major changes have been done to the interior and the exterior, including the removal of the rear doors. Not like the rear doors are needed anyways, as in place of the back seat is a custom-built half roll cage.
The tuner also replaced the stock 2.5-liter engine with a 2.0-liter, four-pot boxer engine from a JDM Impreza. Apart from the engine block itself, the rest of the parts have either been replaced or reworked for improved performance and durability. The net result is an engine that now puts out over 500 horsepower and upwards of 500 pound-feet of torque.
The suspension systems have been overhauled from ground up, so it can tackle any track you throw at it. Standard brakes would’ve never stood up to the punishment and hence had to be replaced with larger discs, new calipers, brakes lines, fluids, master cylinders, and more.
