The Prodrive P2 comes from British automotive engineering company Prodrive. Prodrive are known the world over for their enhancements to the Subaru Impreza WRX. Amongst other things Prodrive also run the Subaru World Rally Team, Ford Performance Racing Team in the Australian V8 Supercar Series and they helped build the Aston Martin DBR9.

The Prodrive P2 Supercar concept revealed at the 2006 Birmingham NEC Motor Show was intended as a display of Prodrives engineering and manufacturing abilities.

The P2's styling comes from the same man who helped create the Mclaren F1, Peter Stevens, and is its chiseled lines are constructed from composite materials helping the P2 achieve a total weight of just 1100 kgs (2425 lbs).

Power for the Prodrive P2 comes from a turbocharged 2 litre flat four engine mated to a 4WD transmission, courtesy of an Impreza STi.

Prodrive have also integrated a couple of their own highly advanced performance systems into the P2. First up is a traction and cornering stability control system called ATD, designed to ensure sure footed handling characteristics. While the engine of the P2 benefits from a road-going 'anti-lag' system designed to eliminate the turbo lag associated with high performance turbocharged engines. Anti-lag technology is already in use on race cars, but Prodrive has made the system quieter and more suited to road driving.

The Prodrive P2 is not destined for full scale production, only as a one off display of Prodrive's engineering and manufacturing abilities.
