Remember when the Bugeye came out! What storm it caused.... Was it the start of a long drawn out death of the brand??? Probably not but certainly not the best marketing move ever made.

Perhaps not....But it was certainly the best of the Newage cars...IMHO only of course.

I cite the S202 and V7 STi Sportwagon as the best examples. cloud9

It's my favourite looking Impreza too! If I ever owned an Impreza I'd probably end up going for a classic Type R or RA, because I think I'd prefer the shorter gear ratios and rawer driving experience, but failing that, of the new-age Imprezas I'd definitely want a Bugeye. It's just got such an aggressive look, the wide, round lights remind me of a a shark's eye, it's just great.

hehe sharks eyes, such an agressive look? My personal opinion of course, but I think one of those Waybuloo characters (cbebbies - I have 2 year olds) looks more threatening wink

It's like a soppy bear or something....

I am not familiar with Waybuloo however.

[pedant]

Actually an STi special edition of the Ver.7 Spec C, following on from the butt-ugly s201 and preceding the s203 (blobeye), s204 (hawkeye) etc. They also did s401 and s402 Legacies.

[/pedant]

They actually made two versions of the bugeye Spec-C (and pre-facelift cars had Type-RA in the name as well), the '17" wheel model' with big brembos, ABS and slightly more comforts and the '16" wheel model' more directly for rally homologation with DCCD/smaller brakes to fit inside gravel wheels/no ABS/smaller fuel tank and a few other differences. Yes please. smile

That version Spec C had 275ps. It was the same engine carried over from the V6 WRX/STi but with AVCS added for better low down torque.

The S202 had a longer wheelbase and extra camber on the front end, lighter glass all round, rear wing etc...) but this time came with 320ps as did all subsequent Spec C's.

Out of all the S203/204/206 versions the S202 was IMHO the best and has more in common with later Spec C's than later S versions, apart from the fact it had no DCCD but then that didn't come about till V8 JDM.

Not many people remember the V7 Spec C, they tend to remember V8 onwards, but they do remember the S202.

ETA: The less said about the S201 the better hehe
