They were just launching the first Impreza turbo - the iconic Turbo 2000.
And to celebrate 15 years of turbo Imprezas, they're rolling back the years to introduce one of their strongest sales incentives to date.
At pounds 17,998, the Impreza WRX is set to become a recessionbusting time machine, because prices for the punchy 2.5-litre WRX Turbo are astonishingly rolled back to exactly the same price as the first car in 1994.
That's a massive pounds 2100 saving on the list price.
While it costs the same as a decade and a half ago, the current Impreza WRX Turbo is a radically evolved beast from its "classic" predecessor.
The stunning performance now comes from a 2.5-litre, rather than a two-litre, turbo engine, while power has risen from 208bhp to 227bhp.
The Impreza is also now a hatchback, rather than a saloon, with a stiffer shell. Its wheelbase is longer and the track is far wider, providing even greater levels of 4x4 grip.
This great offer is the last chance for UK customers to buy into the legendary turbocharged WRX brand, as no more WRX Turbos will be built for sale in the UK.
