The legendary 22B was born in 1998, intended to celebrate two major events in Subaru history—the brand had just turned 40 years old and it had claimed three back-to-back World Rally Championshipconstructors’ titles (’95, ’96, and ’97).
What better a way to celebrate than to apply those rally car looks onto some road-legal Impreza coupes? And that’s exactly what Subaru did, bestowed to 400 Japanese-market Imprezas, followed by 16 U.K. versions, five Aussie models, and three prototypes.
The cars adopted the racy scooped bonnet, rally-spec bumpers, a massive rear wing, and fender flares that pushed the cars outward by three inches. In fact, the only visual mark separating these from their rally cousins is perhaps a “555” racing livery… and those gorgeous gold BBS wheels.
They drive about as fast (and as hard) as they look too. Under that lid lives a Subaru EJ22 flat-four engine — a pumped-up 2.2-liter version of the EJ20 — complete with forged pistons, a big turbocharger, and an intercooler on top.
Subaru claims they made 276 horsepower from the factory, but their zero to 60 mph (0-96 kmh) sprint of four and a half seconds suggests they made more.
