Anybody seen where the STi Xtreme went ?

A year (or maybe two)(I'm getting old...) ago, some pics were released of an Impreza STi Xtreme.

The thing looked exactly like a WRC, but without the stickers. It was said it would cost about 150000 GBP.

I've never actually seen anything about it anymore afterwards. Did it actually make (limited) production ?

Anyone ever seen one for sale ?

Has anybody actually got one !? 8)

Cheers,
Sandy

It sure was watered down a lot then as the Extreme was supposed to have a composite body and be much lighter than the normal road car. (and cost about 150K I heard)

In effect, it would have been a WRC for the road (and to judge from the pics, that was including crap panelfit :wink: )

The WR1 in fact was not more than a PPP STi with a different paintjob, the 2005 diff, a few extra bhp and some Prodrive accessories. (still an awesome car though, don't understand me wrong !)

Maybe somebody knows of a tuner that can supply the awesome bodykit for such a thing to start with !?
