Subaru introduced the Impreza 1993 as a compact car. It’s chassis, however, became very successful on rally championships, and in 1994 Subaru launched the STi version, bringing considerable improvements to the car.
Design: The car has been immortalized on the blue frame with gold colored wheels by rally drivers, and it also comes with a rear spoiler and hood vents. Definitely not the right car to share with your woman or go to the supermarket with.
Performance: The UK Impreza STi Turbo version has 215 bhp and it can go from 0-60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4,9 seconds. Consider that most of its parts (e.g., brakes, suspensions, transmission) already come tuned for racing performance.
Chick Factor: Low. Unless you participate in street racing, chicks will probably not find this car very inviting. If you tune the design a lot it would also probably look lame on a normal city ride.
