A statement from Subaru read: "Called the RB320, the new car features around £6,000 worth of extra equipment including the 320 PS Prodrive Performance Pack, yet costs £29,995 on-the-road – an increase of only £3,500."
Available only in Obsidian Black, the RB320 features bespoke 18 ins alloy wheels and specially developed Prodrive suspension comprising Bilstein dampers, a sports spring kit with revised rear anti-roll bar and a ride height lowered by 30 mm at the front and 10 mm at the rear.
Also standard on the RB320 are a chrome mesh front grille, front lip spoiler, quickshift gearchange, side sill plates and RB320-branded gear knob, carpet mats and exclusive exterior badging. Each owner will also receive an individually numbered black alloy tax disc holder.The PPP boosts power to 320 PS at 6,000 rpm with torque leaping to 332 lb ft at 3,700 rpm. This reduces the 0-60 mph time to 4.8 seconds with a 0-100 mph time of 12.2 seconds.
And as a further incentive, those customers placing early orders with deposits will be offered a limited number of places at a special RB320 launch event next March at Prodrive's test track in Warwickshire.Not only will RB320 fans take delivery of their cars at the circuit but will be able to drive demonstration STIs around the track and meet rally celebrities.
"Finally, the first car is to be given away in a special raffle organised by Autosport magazine, donated by Subaru (UK) Limited. The proceeds will go to the Richard Burns Foundation which helps those suffering from serious injury and illness."

awww nooo! here is photo of Phil after his crash during testing a track in his D1 S14a! In the words of Phil himself, this is what happened:
'I'm totally 100% fine, and the car is no where near as bad as this photo makes it look. It's not damaged the chassis at all really, just the front section of the wheelarch...
We were testing a secret practice facility, I was on the lockstops in 4th gear , straightened and tried to re-initiate, then apparently I suddenly forgot how to drive Doh!'
Im sure Phil will have the car back in 100% as his spare, now he his building his D1 spec S15 Silvia!

Today i received some photos from my friend Barky! He was away in Hong Kong visiting family and managed to catch up with some drifters. It was a small event, as drifting is only starting in HK, but they had a high skill level and great cars. Barky had a great time, and said i have to visit HK for sure. Maybe soon man...Thanks for photos and update, i love hearing about news from all over the world.

Here are some photos from the car meet in Bangor! Fast Car magazine was here from UK, so a huge crowd attended the meet. More than anyone would expect. It was bumper to bumper traffic jam, with hunreds of cars and people out. Some really great cars on display, another VERY busy night in Bangor for car enthusiasts!
