Special edition Imprezas are now available in memory of rally driver Richard Burns

Subaru has launched a special edition Impreza as a memorial to rally driver Richard Burns.

The new car, called the RB320, will cost £29,995, and has £6000 of extra equipment compared with the WRX STI model, including 18-inch alloy wheels, a chrome mesh front grille, Obsidian black paint finish, front lip spoiler, and quick-shift gearchange.

The RB320 also gets the Prodrive Performance Pack (PPP), which boosts power to 316bhp and 332lb ft of pull - enough to power the car to 60mph in 4.8 seconds.

For your money, you'll also get Prodrive-tuned suspension, with a lowered ride height, sports spring kit and special dampers.

Inside, there's an RB320-branded gearknob, carpet mats, and an individually numbered tax disc holder.

Richard Burns died last year of brain cancer, at the age of 32.
