1998 Subaru Im­preza 22B STI

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

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.
