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!

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.

Mini range to be cut back to five models
Mini range to be cut back to five models BMW officials confirm that the third generation of Mini's model range will be smaller, with five 'super hero' vehicles leading the line-up

Mini?s third generation of cars will be pared back to just five models, according to the Peter Schwarzenbauer, the BMW board member responsible for the British brand.

Speaking today in Munich, Schwarzenbauer said the new five-door Mini Clubman would be launched in 2015 and would be the third of ?five super hero? models for the brand, the first two being the three-door and five-door hatchbacks. The fourth model will be a replacement for the Countryman

BMW sources were less forthcoming about the fifth model, but it is expected to be a convertible, which could incorporate much of the design language of the recent Mini Superleggera roadster concept.

Plug-in hybrid versions of the Mini could also arrive over the next five years, Schwarzenbauer said.

Meanwhile, Schwarzenbauer revealed that October and November saw double-digit growth for Mini as the third-generation three-door hatchback and new five-door model came on stream. 

He predicted that the last three months of 2014 would be the ?best ever? for Mini sales. In 2013 Mini sold 305,000 cars globally.

The decision to restrict Mini to five main models was part of a board-level decision to send Mini in a new direction for the future, he said. ?This is work in progress, but we are continually questioning Mini?s future. We will adjust the brand quite a lot over several years. The heritage will still be important, but we also have to be shaped by the zeitgeist.?

Schwarzenbauer hinted that access to Mini and its dealers would shift to a ?24/7? basis. ?We believe society is going through another significant change, just as it did at the millennium," he said. "The next 10 years of the auto industry will see more change than the last 100 years.

?People are demanding more information about the way a product is made and how it is sourced. People are looking for a more sustainable lifestyle and we are now seeing the growth of a ?sharing? economy.?

Schwarzenbauer also said Mini buyers were increasingly opting for more powerful and more highly specified vehicles. Sales of the Cooper S models have grown from 25 per cent of overall sales to 34 per cent and JCW models now account for five per cent of sales.

2014 Skoda Octavia Scout 2.0 TDI 150 4X4 review
2014 Skoda Octavia Scout 2.0 TDI 150 4X4 review An easy to drive, easy to live with, capable soft-roader. Recommended My nomination for one half of the ideal two-car garage. The Skoda Octavia Scout is fundamentally an Octavia estate lifted by 31mm and given some underbody protection and exterior cladding. It?s an SUV-lite, if you will, with all that entails.

2014 Porsche Panamera GTS review
2014 Porsche Panamera GTS review Curious mix of raw and cooked doesn?t automatically make the GTS the stand-out car in the Panamera range The Porsche Panamera GTS, which augurs well, because we?re fast becoming accustomed to GTS variants being (GT3 aside, perhaps) the most desirable variant in each of Porsche?s model line-ups. For serious drivers, anyway. And in the Panamera, those letters GTS are particularly notable. Because while the meat of the Panamera range went turbocharged and downsized last year, this version retains a normally aspirated V8 of 4.8-litres. Marvellous.It sends its power via the obligatory seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic gearbox, with drive going to all four wheels, The suspension, though 10mm lowered, features, as standard, air springs.A couple of those points raise an eyebrow. On the original Panamera launch, Porsche execs told me their favourite version was the naturally aspirated ?S? model with rear-wheel drive and steel springs. You?re now unable to get such a Panamera. Seems a shame. Still, Porsche knows more about this sort of thing than I do. Presumably nobody would buy one. So the Panamera GTS stays air sprung and with four driven wheels. 

2015 Tesla Model S 60 review
2015 Tesla Model S 60 review Retains all the style and practicality of the more expensive model, with decent handling and an improved ride. Quick enough for most people A new entry point into the recently revised Tesla Model S line-up. It's also perhaps a more affordable, everyday proposition than the barnstorming P85+ version we?ve driven previously and declared to be better than an Aston Martin Rapide.That model was undoubtedly a seminal moment for the electric car ? and possibly for automotive development full stop ? but priced at 50,280 after the government?s electric vehicle subsidy, this version is firmly within the reach of the type of buyers who normally opt for a plush German exec.The revised range is now made up of the 60kWh version we?ve driving here, the punchier 85kWh model and, from July 2015, the range-topping P85D. This replaces the Performance model, and will have an eye watering 682bhp, thankfully deployed through all four wheels.

Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award 2014 winner revealed
Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award 2014 winner revealed Coventry University graduate Nicole Agba wins the Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award with her concept for a biometric steering wheel

Nicole Agba has been named as the winner of the sixth annual Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award.

Designed to help kick-start a career in the motor industry for budding graduates, the Autocar-Courland Next Generation Award is sponsored by manufacturers including Jaguar Land Rover, McLaren Automotive, Peugeot, Skoda and Toyota.

Agba impressed our judging panel with her concept for a biometric steering wheel.

The result was announced at the annual Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders dinner, in front of an audience of industry representatives.

Agba outlined how her plan, dubbed 'Steer Right', employs a Smart Fabrics Interactive Textile on the steering wheel, which uses sensors to monitor the driver's heart and respiration rate. The system can be used to detect signals that can indicate fatigue, anger or nervousness.

If put into production, the concept could even be used to detect alcohol in a driver's system, immobilising the vehicle if he or she is over the limit.

Agba's prize includes work experience with JLR, McLaren, Peugeot, Skoda and Toyota, as well as a cash prize of 7500.

Speaking at the awards ceremony, Autocar editor-in-chief Steve Cropley said: "Once again we have been bowled over by the calibre of the entries received for this year?s competition, making Nicole an all the more deserved winner. It just goes to show that you do not have to be studying for a degree as a technician to produce a creative idea with real gravitas and commercial appeal."

Runners-up in the Next Generation Award included Freddie Lee and Serge Kaldany, who both entered concepts for apps ? one of which could alert drivers to the presence of cyclists and the other which could act as a games console-inspired control system.

Applications for the 2015 Next Generation Award will open early next year.
