When you mate Subaru's blown boxer and all-wheel-drive system to a lightweight body, only good things can come of it. The P2 from Prodrive has already proven that much. But, when another British racing firm creates their own bespoke machine, the hairs on the back of our neck stand at attention.

The UK's own Adrenaline Motorsports is in the process of developing a one-ton roadster that utilizes Subie motivation to make the sprint to sixty in under three seconds. The Murtaya will come in a few different flavors, with varying trim levels and power outputs, ranging between 150 and 400 HP.

Prototypes of the Murtaya are in the process of testing and a feasibility study of importing the roadster to North America is underway. If there is any justice in the world we'll see it on this side of the pond soon.

More pics after the jump.

      It may be fast but from a styling standpoint it looks like it can't decide between being a juiced up Miata or a Lotus Elise in drag.

      This is what happens when you leave your girlie Miata in a garage with metrosecual Elise. Thier son grows up and thinks he is a Subaru.

      Nice design, but what makes this different from any other kit car manufacturer.

      Fooman, I thought your post was funny, but how do 2 RWD parents yield an AWD offspring? Plus shouldn't at least one of the parents be turbo'ed ;)

      I think this car looks hot... I'd like to find out more about the different trim levels... the 150hp trim won't be turbocharged... but I wonder where the "middle" trim power level is at. Keep us posted Autoblog!!!

      Hmm I see a trend here, British unibody, suspension and tuning with a Japanese engine. Both are Island nations, and each has their own style. I kinda like the confluence of the two.

      Dear Santa. I have been a very good boy this year...

      Looks like a Miata with really big fangs. I'll take one in red, please.

      Damn you Subaru. Why couldn't you make something like this? but if you do, please get someone else to design it for you. maybe pininfarina?

      Japanese powerplant and electrical systems combined with British body and interior ... Adam Smith would be proud.

      My question: Why isn't Subaru already building something like this?
        • 7 Years Ago
        I think it moves away from the core image Subaru are trying to make. They did have a go with the P2 but havn't put it in production. Rumor has it, prodrive have been very helpful.
