Subaru has decided to launch this new edition of the Impreza and name it Richard Burns, the ex-Subaru driver who died last November victim of brain cancer and the visual result is great in my opinion.
The price to pay to own this 320bhp is £29,995, quite expensive but hey...It's an exclusive version.
Available only in Obsidian Black, the RB320 features bespoke 18-inch alloy wheels and specially developed Prodrive suspension comprising Bilstein dampers, a sports spring kit with revised rear anti-roll bar and a ride height lowered by 30 mm at the front and 10 mm at the rear.
In this special edition we can see a nice chrome mesh front grille, front lip spoiler, quickshift gearchange, side sill plates and RB320-branded gear knob, carpet mats and exclusive exterior badging. Each owner will receive an individually numbered black alloy tax disc holder taking the exclusivity of this Subaru to the next level.
