Subaru is continuing its tradition of introducing coveted special editions with the launch of the new Impreza WRX 300.
On sale from late May, the WRX 300 will feature a Prodrive Performance Pack boosting power to 265 PS and torque to 257 lb.ft for a 0-60 mph time of 4.8 seconds and top speed in excess of 145 mph.
Finished in WR Blue, the all-wheel drive saloon boasts special 17 ins alloy wheels with 215/45 tyres, an aluminium gear knob, WRX-branded carpet mats and a 'Subaru World Rally Team' logo on the front seats and front lamp covers.
Also included in the package is an RAC 'Trackstar' anti-theft device plus one-year's free membership.
This is in addition to a raft of improvements for the '05 Model Year WRX such as a totally revised chassis with inverted suspension struts and sharper-feeling steering for even more precise handling response.
Other changes for this year include enhanced interiors with plusher - and extended - cloth door trim, softer-feeling roof linings and a flush-fit centre console with new air-conditioning controls and new, quality-feeling switchgear.
Limited to 300 examples,
the WRX 300 costs £21,495 on-the-road. This represents excellent value
as the normal WRX saloon with PPP normally costs £21,900 OTR.
