Although it’s reasonably restrained from the outside, this 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX STI is packing some very serious modifications.
Built by AB Performance, its engined has been stroked to 2.1-litres and is now force-fed by a Precision turbocharger. The total power output is 800bhp, and thanks to a titanium exhaust, the soundtrack is pretty mega too. Perhaps our favourite modification, though, is the six-speed sequential gearbox, which makes for some ferocious shifts.
If you’re feeling impatient, we recommend skipping to the 2min 50 sec point to watch the car blast down the start/finish straight of Franciacorta circuit while smashing through several gears. It really is a treat for the ears
