Frayz’s V7 STi

UK Impreza owners have always had a special eye for tuning. The popularity of rallying and motor sports in general has had a heavy influence on the way they style their cars. It’s an approach I wish we saw more of in the US.

Frayz’s V7 STi has been around for as long as I can remember and the car has gone through a pretty extensive rebuild in the last couple of years. I’d recommend checking out his build thread if you have time.


The execution of this Impreza is something pretty special. No aspect of the car has been left untouched and the attention to detail immense. In many respects the car alludes to some of the special edition Impreza models we’ve seen from shops like Prodrive.



While many criticize the organized chaos that is a Suabru engine bay, there is beauty to be found here. The careful color coordination and selection of only the finest parts speaks to this car’s purpose of blending high performance with ultimate streetability.


The same philosophy holds true in the interior.

Anyone can build a car that looks great sitting in their garage. It’s a different story entirely to build something that not only looks great but can also take whatever abuse its owner throws at it.

  1. I don’t see the engine bay as complicated all. I’ve seen plenty of them in subaru dealers in pa around where I live and I can get my way around the parts effortlessly. Thanks for the photos, btw!

      1. I will let you know when I get my drive of it.looking forward to it and im no impreza that says alot!

  2. Wheels have since changed recently for some diamond black Volk CE28Ns. Just fancied a change after the gold for so long. Heartbreaking to sell the speedlines but love the quality of the Volks. Still trying to get used to the black on black combo. Add me up on Facebook if you wanna check it out.
