Ah, the 2000 Subaru Impreza STI P1. What we have here isn't just another jumped up Japanese hot hatch. The instantly recognisable Sonic Blue Metallic finish holds a depth of character only equalled by its rich rally roots. Boasting an exterior heavily influenced by Peter Stevens, the same design maestro behind the McLaren F1, this car shouts legacy (or Impreza? pardon the pun) and potency from every curve and angle. And that monstrous, carbon-lipped wing at the rear? Excellent.

Underneath that sculpted bonnet lies a beast: the notorious 1994cc, turbo-charged Boxer engine. Pumping out a hefty 276 bhp and 253 lbft of torque, paired with its 5-speed, short-throw manual transmission, the P1 doesn't just get you from A to B, it makes every journey an epic tale. It's not the sub 5-second 0-60 mph that grabs you, it's how this machine pulls you around corners, gripping the road, translating every nuance of the tarmac.

Inside, you’re cradled by high-back Prodrive sport seats, stitched in Alcantara with a contrasting red flair. This isn’t just any car; it's a chronicle of diligent love. An extremely detailed service history accompanies this one, showing no stone has been left unturned. From its original sale in Maidenhead to its most recent tune-up in Warwickshire, its record is immaculate.

This one is something special. It's a ticket to an era where cars had soul. And in the age of silent electrics, this boxer engine's growl offers a harmonious reminder of what pure driving passion feels like. Drive it once, and you'll be smitten. But be swift – icons like this don't linger in the shadows for long.
