Prodrive has unveiled their latest Group N rally car, the Subaru Impreza N2010.
Under the hood, Prodrive equipped the 2.0-liter boxer engine with an IHI twin scroll turbocharger (which features a 33mm air restrictor), high flow fuel injectors, a motorsport catalyst, and a recalibrated ECU module. The net result of all these changes is an additional 20 bhp, more torque, and improved responsiveness.
Riding on an adjustable Prodrive-Öhlins sport suspension, the N2010 has strengthened rear cross-members, an FIA compliant rollcage, and high performance AP Racing brakes. For maximum maneuverability, the car was outfitted with a power-assisted ‘quickrack' steering system, limited slip (front and rear) differentials, and an electro-mechanical locking center differential.
According to Graham Prew, Prodrive sales manager, "The engine and suspension changes make the N2010 far more competitive. 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 N2010 will be priced from £120,000 and is also available for a two year lease.
