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.

Bentley Continental GT3-R first drive review
Bentley Continental GT3-R first drive review With 572bhp, a top speed of 170mph and a price tag of £237,500, the GT3-R is a glorious tribute to Bentley's return to racing This is the glorious contradiction that is the Bentley Continental GT3-R. From a distance, you?ll take it for a road-legal competition car with number plates. If not, perhaps, a homologation special. It?s neither ? but at the same time, it?s no ordinary luxury grand tourer either. The GT3-R is, in fact, a tribute to Bentley?s maiden season back in international motorsport after a gap of more than a decade. It?s also nothing short of the fastest-accelerating, most performance-focussed road car that Crewe has ever made.It?s also still a rich, luxurious, long-distance machine thoroughly in the traditions of the marque. A stripped-out, silver-tongued heavyweight, in other words.A limited run of three-hundred GT3-Rs will be made over the coming months, in recognition of Bentley Motorsport?s Blancpain Endurance Series win in the Continental GT3 race car at Silverstone earlier this year.But unofficially, you could say the car earned its place in the showroom two years ago at the Paris motor show, when Bentley publicly stated its intention to return to motorsport by airing a racing concept version of the Continental GT.That show car, with its even more enormous splitter and rear wing, inspired enough direct expressions of interest that a road-going version was a no-brainer. Unbeknown to Bentley, Crewe?s customer base was in love with the idea of a grand British coupé with the soul and sharpened cutting edge of a track special. So it?s made one.

Hyundai plans new sports car
Hyundai plans new sports car Korean firm says there's an appetite for a new sports car in Europe, with Hyundai's new N performance division creating "opportunities" for the brand

Hyundai is considering a small sports car. European MD Allan Rushforth told Autocar that discussions about a sports car have taken place and that there is an appetite for one. 

If the car makes production, it will not be a relaunch of the Coupé. The market for such a car is difficult to sustain, according to Rushforth, who also revealed he is leaving Hyundai for a senior role at Nissan. 

?Cars like these, such as the Audi TT, create a huge demand when they?re new, but then that dies off quickly,? he said. ?It?s about demographics, too. The buyers of the old Coupé no longer want these cars.? 

Any new sports car would have to be a global model. Hyundai?s World Rally Championship and other motorsport ambitions make a sports car more relevant, and its planned N performance division creates what Rushforth called ?opportunities? for new models. 

Inspiration for the new model could come from the firm's recent PassoCorto concept, which made its debut in Geneva earlier this year. Designed by the IED design school in Turin and powered by a twin-turbocharged 1.6-litre engine with 262bhp, the PassoCorto concept was billed as being purely a design study.

Hyundai is also planning a new B-segment crossover to arrive ?within two years?, as part of plans to launch 22 new vehicles by 2017.

Why there?s still a place for car classifieds in print
Why there?s still a place for car classifieds in print There's a school of thought that ads in mags are so last-century, but the experience can still be quite fulfilling

What could be easier than clicking, prodding and pressing your electronic device and seeing thousands and thousands of cars for sale?

I love the crystal clear pictures I see online. If the picture is a rubbish one taken on a mobile with the sellers thumb in the way, then I won?t bother taking it any further.

Like the old days I can ring the seller up, but it?s even better if I can just email them. It wastes less time and money and I get all the information I need. Even better, I?ve had sellers who are tech savvy enough to send me film of the motor and scans of the documentation.

However, the fabulousness of modern technology is no substitute for going to see the car. You must never, ever get lazy and buy without trying. A great online advert should tickle your fancy and if you like the car enough then you must go back to basics and start kicking the tyres.

It's true that classified ad magazines have less of a purpose now that we can see what's for sale right now. Online ads give us that instant fix at any time of the day and in a far better format than was ever possible from those grubby, dated little mags.

Hold on there, because actually the car mags are wonderfully chock-full of nice ads, as well as some great articles too.

In fact, I am not so sure that looking exclusively online is the answer. I love the sheer randomness, particularly in the classic newspapers, when you can stumble across a fire engine and automobilia.

I get fed up looking at screens all the time and handling paper is much more satisfying. I can make notes, put rings around ads and jot details down when I phone up the seller.

I think the two can co-exist quite happily and, on balance, I would prefer to browse through a mag.

What do you think?

Jaguar Land Rover plans more Special Operations vehicles
Jaguar Land Rover plans more Special Operations vehicles With the Range Rover Sport SVR now on sale, JLR's new tuning division has turned its attention to the Defender

Jaguar Land Rover is promising a nimble response to both the competition and customer demand from its Special Operations division ? the newly formed entity that?s responsible for quickly turning the F-type Project 7 from concept to road car.  

Headed by former Land Rover boss John Edwards, the 500-employee department has four main areas of expertise: special vehicles, personalisation, heritage and branded goods. Its special vehicles work will deliver halo derivatives in the mould of the new Range Rover Sport SVR

Speaking to Autocar, Edwards explained that these will be sub-divided into luxury, performance and all-terrain offerings. The last of these, he said, would next year include special run-out editions of the Defender, identifying the broad conceptual space between the Camel Trophy and Paris-Dakar as interesting ground for such a vehicle. 

Land Rover will use 2015 as a celebration of its outgoing Defender. Edwards was adamant that the car?s owners would not be forgotten about in the years to come and highlighted the opportunities to engage with its fan base via the heritage wing of the new division. 

It is likely to be a busy year for Special Operations elsewhere. Edwards described the search for a ?Project 8? as a continuing process and confirmed that limited-run, stand-alone models fuelled by buyer enthusiasm were certainly going to be a significant part of the division?s future. 

What the SVR badge will mean for Jaguar derivatives is also still being finalised. Edwards cited the need to properly ?define the DNA? of the brand before it could be appropriately applied to Jaguars. 

Using it to signify extreme all-wheel-drive versions of Jaguar models wasn?t ruled out. Nor was the incorporation of high-powered diesel engines, suggesting that JLR is determined to make SVR as relevant to Europe as it will be in lucrative petrol-based markets.
