Here we have the complete list of Special Edition Subaru Impreza's were/are available in the UK. There have been many more editions released world wide, but here is the list of UK models along with there specifications.

       

 RB320 - 2007

November 2006, exactly one year after the sad death of Richard Burns from a brain tumour. Subaru UK announced a new special edition of their MY06 Subaru Impreza WRX STi. The RB320 is packaged in Obsidian black, with bespoke black alloys. May not be to everyone's liking but I think it looks fantastic and appropriate for the anniversary. The RB320 is no limited edition paint job, as the name suggests the RB320 delivers around 320bhp from it's WRX STi PPP package. That's a lot of oomph!! Added to that just about every subaru/prodrive option you can think of has been added as standard on the RB320

 P2 - 2005 (Prototype, not in production)

Prototype vehicle made by prodrive. Initial runours hoped it woudl be the next Impreza, but it was purely a prototype, never to be put into production. Pity it was pretty sticky in the bends!

 WR1 - 2004

In 2004, the Subaru World Rally Team finally got back to winning Rally Championships thanks to Petter Solberg and traditionally released a Special Edition Subaru Impreza to celebrate, in the form of the WR1. Based on the latest Subaru Impreza WRX STi the WR1 also had the added Prodrive Performance Pack PPP Which makes this the most powerful and fastest Subaru Impreza you can buy off the shelf!

 P1 - 1999

The second special edition to be released in 1999 was the P1, which was more to do with Prodrive than Subaru directly. Prodrive is the company that develops the Impreza's for the World Rally Teams, so they know a thing or two about the Subaru Impreza. Therefore, they decided to release their own special edition Impreza. P1.

BMW X3 xDrive20d M Sport first drive review
BMW X3 xDrive20d M Sport first drive review X3?s new 2.0-litre four-pot diesel has its merits, but bigger six-pot remains the more appealing choice This is the latest version of BMW?s popular X3, benefiting here from a host of minor cosmetic updates and a new 188bhp TwinPower Turbo 2.0-litre diesel engine.We tested the lightly revised SUV four-wheel-drive xDrive form and M Sport trim, with the optional automatic gearbox and paddle shifts.On paper, the four-cylinder diesel appears to be a sound option. It produces 188bhp and 295lb ft, propelling the X3 from 0-62mph in a sensible 8.1sec.A claimed average of 54.3mpg is good for a car in this class and CO2 emissions of 138g/km mean you?ll pay road tax of £130 a year.

Lamborghini plans new rear-drive Huracan
Lamborghini plans new rear-drive Huracan New variants of Lamborghini's Huracán are planned to start arriving from next year, with an open-top Spyder version being followed by a rear-wheel drive special

Lamborghini is planning to add a rear-wheel-drive version of the Huracán to the new model?s line-up, company boss Stephan Winkelmann has revealed. 

Speaking at last weekend?s Pebble Beach Concours event, which also saw the unveiling of the firm's new Super Trofeo racer, Winkelmann said: ?We did it with the Gallardo so it might be an option. We are a four-wheel-drive super-sports car [manufacturer] but why should we not do a rear-drive option??

Winkelmann also hinted that other derivatives of the Huracán could be on the way. ?We need lots of derivatives. Customers expect it and we always need something new to talk about,? he said. 

An open-top Spyder version of the Huracán is expected next year and it?s likely that more extreme, lighter versions will also eventually be sold. The Gallardo was available in faster, lighter form as the Superleggera and as the rear-drive LP550-2 Balboni.

Just 250 examples of the Balboni were offered - a pattern Lamborghini would likely stick to for the new rear-drive Huracán.

While the two-wheel drive Gallardo was priced to be around ten per cent less expensive than the standard car, the same is not likely to be true of the special-edition Huracán. The standard car is priced from £180,720 in the UK.

How defective brake fluid could put UK motorists at risk
Research reveals the prevelance of sub-standard brake fluid More than a quarter of cars in the UK could be using ineffective brake fluid, increasing the likelihood of an accident

Research has suggested that more than a quarter of all the cars in the UK have defective brake fluid.

Now you, like us, might raise an eyebrow at that statement. The research, carried out for Cosan Lubricants? Mobil Car Care range, however, bears some consideration.

Brake fluid is hygroscopic, meaning that it absorbs water from the atmosphere. Over time this reduces its effectiveness by lowering its boiling point.

When the fluid boils, vapour is produced ? which is compressible ? resulting in a soft brake pedal and a decreased, or non-existent, braking effort.

Cosan says that brake fluid, which has a typical boiling point of between 230-260 degrees C when new, becomes all but useless once it boils below 180deg.

Brake fluid expert Alba Diagnostic concurs, suggesting that brake fluid should be changed when its boiling point is down to 200deg C ? and it?s below this figure that the research suggests more than a quarter of all cars will boil their fluid.

After all, how many of us are particularly attentive as to what goes into our brake fluid reservoirs? We may intermittently check the levels, but few of us are likely to go any further.

Many of us use whatever brake fluid tends to be handy ? which might be a contaminated bottle that?s been on the shelf for a while. That?s assuming, of course, that the fluid has even been changed in recent history.

Mike Bewsey, of Cosan Lubricants, said: "Many drivers mistakenly believe that if their car has passed its MOT, all of the lubricants and chemicals within it are up to scratch.

"The only way to check the quality of brake fluid is to test its boiling point temperature. As that is not part of the MOT, the onus is clearly on motorists to ensure that their car is safe."

So if you?ve only been intermittently checking your brake fluid?s levels, or don?t know when it was last refreshed, perhaps it?s time to consider a change. After all, for £100 including labour, it?s cheap insurance.

Infiniti to reveal bold new concept car at Paris motor show
Infiniti previews mysterious new Paris concept car Japanese manufacturer hints at new vehicle with cryptic front grille image, promising 'style and substance that push any pre-conceived limits'

Infiniti has released the first picture of a new concept car which is expected to make its debut at the Paris motor show in October.

Alongside the mysterious front grille image, Infiniti says it plans to "share a vision, its soul, on a scale not yet seen before" with the new vehicle, which is part of the brand's plan to grow its range by up to five new models and thoroughly overhaul its existing line-up.

The brand's current UK range comprises the Q50 and Q70 saloons, the Q60 coupé and convertible, plus the QX50 and QX70 sports-utility vehicles.

One of the key vehicles the manufacturer has been considering is a crossover hatchback that will be known as the Q30. Such a car is regarded as integral to Infiniti's goal of reaching annual sales of 500,000 units before the end of the decade. However, a concept version of the Q30 has already been seen at last year's Frankfurt motor show

But that's not the only new model in Infiniti's plans; it is also considering rival to the Porsche Panamera. Such a model has been mooted before as a range-topping car that could reach market in either 2017 or 2018. Among the other options Infiniti has been considering for the future is a seven-seat SUV that's expected to arrive before 2020.

Why a BMW 7-series is Deep Purple and a Jaguar XJ is Genesis
Why a BMW 7-series is Deep Purple and a Jaguar XJ is Genesis Stuck in a summertime traffic jam? Consider this music-related brain-teaser to help pass the time waiting for everyone to get on the move

Traffic snarl-ups seem to be all the more irritating at this time of the year, when the weather can be exceptionally humid. However, the really important thing is to have a good line in distraction while you wait for something to happen.

My own bizarre contribution to in-car entertainment is deciding what musical genres certain cars are. Yes really.

Bear with me: in the broadest possible terms, small hatchbacks are pop music. Family hatches like the Ford Mondeo and Vauxhall Insignia are middle-of-the-road easy listening. Sports cars are rock. A Caterham would be thrash metal and a white van full-on death metal.

Many complicated luxury cars are progressive rock, but then again plenty of them are inoffensively classical.

The fun bit is getting specific. A Lexus LS is surely middle-of-the-road maestro James Last. That would make a GS Richard Clayderman and an IS Andre Rieu. But should that really be the Mercedes-Benz S, E and C-class?

For me the BMW 7-series has always been Deep Purple because the band?s keyboard player John Lord had one. Otherwise I see a Jaguar XJ as Genesis ? but that?s Peter Gabriel-era Genesis. I regard a lot of MPVs as pop reggae.

Some cars are attached to their era, so a Ford Escort XR3is in white are Shakatak. The E30-era BMW 3-series is late-1980s Spandau Ballet. Val Doonican is a Vauxhall Vectra. I see a series one Toyota MR2 as Pat Benatar. And by the end of all that mindless musical mental activity the traffic has cleared and I?m on my way home.

So is there any mileage in this musical madness, or should I keep what I think about in traffic jams to myself? Any idea what kind of car Vera Lynn might be?
