Collectible car dealer Contempo Concept in Hong Kong has put up an extremely rare Subaru Imprez22B STI for sale.
The 22B modification itself is very rare and valuable, but this instance is special: it is one of only three prototypes, each of which was released under the number 000 (the corresponding plates are inside the car). At the same time, the mileage is 55 (!) Kilometers: in fact, this is a new car.
- The price of the car is not specified. Different versions of the 22B cost between $ 34,000 and $ 150,000 at auctions, depending on condition and ancestry.
- The Imprez22B STI was produced in a series of 426 cars (including three prototypes, one of which is put up for sale). The model has a 2.2-liter boxer turbo engine with a capacity of 280 hp, which is paired with a five-speed manual transmission. The drive is, of course, full.
- The 22B STI has a lot of features borrowed from the combat rally Subaru: inverted Bilstein shock absorbers, additional cooling of the intercooler (sprinkler system), wide track, wide body kit and adjustable wing.
- The origin of the name 22B has two versions. According to one of them, 22 means engine displacement (2.2 liters), and B is a nod to Bilstein. According to another, 22B is the number 555 in the hexadecimal system: the general sponsor of the Subaru rally team was then the tobacco brand State Express 555.
