GD Impreza – Bulletproof Client’s Car Review

Posted by

Rich’s Bulletproof GD Impreza

(The above pic is wallpaper sized)

We worked with our client Rich on his Impreza back in 2005. Looking back I’m still really proud of how this car came out and I thought I’d share it with you all.

This car was assembled as our second demonstration car for our Varis USA debut (the first Varis USA demonstration car was our matte black Evo 8). We did a lot of great parts on this car including:

– Full Varis catalog of parts

– J Speed full roll cage with floor support bar (its a little known fact that we’ve been for many years an authorized CS Marche/J Speed dealer)

– Gold Advan rims

– Ganador Super Mirrors, Carbon

– Ings+1 Z Power Low Mount Wing from S2000 (we did this as something a little different…the wing looks great on the car but its actually a S2000 low mount application)

Rich tracked this car often and from his reviews it seems like he gained a nice advantage with all of the aero work. Rich did a great job of putting it all together and then driving the hell out of it! 🙂
