1998 Subaru Impreza 22B STI
Only 400 22Bs were built and unique styling trends aside (front and rear bumpers, bonnet and rear wing) what was going on mechanically set this model apart from regular models. The E22 2.2-litre engine pumped out 280bhp and a ceramic clutch delivered power to the wheels, which were kept firmly on the tarmac with Bilstein suspension. With such a tempting specification this car was going to draw in punters, but add in 2500 miles from new and the fact it had been owned by boxer Prince Naseem Hamed and it became a more tempting prospect. At last, for those who needed confirmation, here was evidence the Impreza has now arrived at the truly collectable terminus.
