The Prodrive P25 restomod will cost £552,000 (P36.5 million), Prodrive has confirmed to Top Gear. And to preempt your next thought, no, you don’t need both kidneys, anyway.

Big price for a big car. It of course pays tribute to the glorious Subaru Impreza 22B road car, and Prodrive is working on making it more powerful, lighter, and pointier than that iconic original.

Explaining the price, a Prodrive spokersperson told us: “We’ve been working on the development of this car for more than 12 months already. It is bespoke: The engine, gearbox, drivetrain and suspension have all been developed specifically for the P25 using the latest technology.

“The bodyshell has been extensively reworked with extensive use of carbon to make it lightweight, and we’ve applied all our motorsport experience to effectively give it the performance of a tarmac WRC.”

We know it’ll use a 2.5-liter flat-four boxer engine kicking out well over 400hp, hooked up to a six speed semi-automatic paddle-shift gearbox. And Prodrive boss Dave Richards is confident this thing will be even better than its predecessor.

“We wanted to enhance everything that made that car so special,” he said, “by applying the very latest technology to create our own modern interpretation of a car that’s established a place in motoring history.”
