Default A bit of Cross-breeding..what happens? = Prodrive P2

when you put this



inside this ?




Answer: You get a "0-100kph in under 4 seconds" beast



This is the new P2 concept car from Prodrive. Well, it is not piping hot news. Its been around for a while now. I did not see any thread on this here. So I thought I'll start one. It is just a prototype for now. Prodrive is looking for manufacturers to buy this idea.

Sounds like a fun car to me. Hey, I'll drive a donkey if it had an STI engine

I didn't think about this car from the angle of ownership. I just thought that this will be a fun car to drive. But if the regular STI is about 30K, 40K for a tuned up STI doesn't sound bad. STI is a dying breed. Subaru should partner with someone like Prodrive to revive it.

I see Ford, I see Subaru, I see MG, I see Renault, I see Dodge. A great amalgamation. It'll be one of those Ariel Atom type automobiles...pure fun.
