    Cool Prodrive releases new 2010 Impreza Group N

    Prodrive has released details of the Subaru Impreza that it will to take to the world rally stages in 2010.

    The car, named simply the Impreza N2010, uses the 2.0-litre 4-cylinder boxer engine found in the standard Impreza WRX STi, but with significant upgrades to exploit the full potential of its power.

    Subaru pulled out of the WRC in 2008, but the Prodrive outfit has ensured that production teams can continue competing in the Impreza.

    Prodrive says the car will develop 413lb ft of torque, which should help it to 60mph in about 4.0 seconds on the tarmac. To achieve this, Prodrive has fitted a larger air restrictor, high-flow fuel injectors, and has recalibrated the car's Engine Control Unit to get an extra 20bhp.

    The suspension has been significantly overhauled with rally parts and the car is expected to be one of the frontrunners in the renewed and refreshed WRC championship next season.

    ------------------------------------
    The Impreza N2010 uses the new larger 33mm air restrictor, introduced by the FIA to help balance the performance of Group N and the unrestricted Super2000 rally cars. Increasing the restrictor diameter from 32 to 33mm, fitting high flow fuel injectors and recalibrating the ECU increases peak power by 20 bhp, but more significantly, improves torque and responsiveness throughout the rev range.

    The improvements in engine performance have been matched by enhancements to the car’s dynamics. The N2010 Ohlins dampers have been revised with extra travel front and rear, while all the suspension bushes have been strengthened.

    “The engine and suspension changes make the N2010 far more competitive,” said Graham Prew, Prodrive sales manager. “On gravel the Impreza is certainly a match for any Super 2000, but it is on tarmac, that the additional engine performance will really come into its own and make the N2010 a competitive alternative to a Super 2000, but at about half the price and with significantly lower running costs.”

    The Impreza N2010 prices start at 120,000 and for the first time Prodrive has introduced a financing option to enable the car to be leased over two years with an option to buy the car at the end of the agreement. The package includes insurance and system rebuilds.
