Mexipreza

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis



'Mexipreza': the name immediately tells you what's going on - half Mexico, half Impreza. The shell of the former stuffed with the running gear of the latter, you can see the beefy flat-four with its factory top-mount intercooler lurking beneath the bonnet, the wide track and the five-stud hubs, the giveaway bean-can exhaust offering a stylistic teaser... there's a general sense that the classic two-door profile's been stre-e-etched over the Subaru guts, and that must add up to a whole lot of fun.
This is a car that we need to keep an eye out for - it looks fresh on the scene, and will no doubt be making a big splash before too long.
(Oh, and if you want to see some build photos, take a peep here!)
