UK customers are being given an added incentive to buy a new Subaru Impreza WRX or Subaru Impreza STI Type UK. The Japanese automaker is giving away the Prodrive Performance Pack and an upgraded set of wheels for new buyers.
The complimentary equipment would normally cost an additional £3,200. Those wanting to purchase the regular WRX will find that price reduced by nearly £100.
Tuners from English firm Prodrive hit the car with a remapped engine control unit, and add on a high-flow exhaust system and 18-inch alloy wheels. The result is a WRX that completes a 0-100 km/h sprint in 5.9 seconds, 0.6 seconds faster than before. STI owners will see their sprint time improve by 0.4 seconds to 5.2s.
Subaru UK made no mention of the actual horsepower gains made by the Prodrive Performance Pack.
