Rich White’s ’98 Subaru Impreza Type-R is an immaculate build intended to be used for circuits, hillclimb & Time Attack but he fancied seeing what it could do down the 1/4 mile.
Rich bought the car back in 2008 and it’s been a long 10 year project to get it where it is today! It’s running a 2.35L engine with a BorgWarner EFR9180 Turbo making 732hp on Race Fuel and weighs in at 1100kg.
All work was carried out by Rich himself apart from the paintwork, fitting the cage and building the long engine.
