Gb270

I went into Subaru dealers today, and had a look at the GB270, it looks stunning.....

This is copied from Vospers...

Vospers

To commemorate the end of an era and the current shape Impreza, we will be building a two-model special edition Impreza WRX to be called GB270. The name is derived from Rally GB - a rally we have won more than any other and 270PS, the power output of the vehicle.

Available in strictly limited numbers as both a WR Blue saloon (300 units) and an Urban Grey Sports Wagon (100 units) they have excellent levels of additional spec over and above the standard WRXs on which they're based.

Standard items common to both vehicles are as follows :
  • 270PS WRX Prodrive Performance Pack
  • Lowered spring kit
  • Quickshift gearbox
  • WRX Carpet mats
  • MOMO Air-race gear knob
  • 18x7.5" GT1 alloy wheels with Subaru "Six-star" centre cap
  • GB270 exterior badging and individually numbered interior plaque
The Saloon also benefits from :
  • <LI type=disc>WRC style rear spoiler <LI type=disc>Stainless-steel mesh front grille <LI type=disc>STI front lip spoiler <LI type=disc>Rear under spoiler
  • Silver alloy wheels
The Sports Wagon also benefits from :
  • <LI type=disc>Rear waist spoiler <LI type=disc>Front and rear aero splash guards <LI type=disc>Rear privacy glass <LI type=disc>Black stainless-steel mesh front grille
  • Gloss black alloy wheels

Hi Tricia
I like it and want one
The lights and a few other bits remind me of the new Vectra
The scoop and spoiler make it a cool car

Have to say, the close ratio gearing feels good, quick and easy on the change....

Just a good car as far as I'm concerned....
