This ‘Blobeye’ Impreza has had the price of a house invested in it, and it’s won Best in Show at quite a few exhibitions.
Never has the saying ‘you can sleep in a car, but you can’t race a house’ been more apt. This 2002 Subaru Impreza ‘Blobeye’ has had roughly $250,000 invested in it. Many people would buy a house with that kind of cash, but Alex Witkin spent that figure modifying one of his cars almost beyond recognition.
Almost every part of the car has been changed or upgraded. The engine has been built completely from scratch, and the engine bay has had a lot of work done to achieve the end result. It has a custom-fabricated 10-point roll cage, the interior has been completely overhauled and it’s even been converted to a right-hand-drive car. As the car is in America and was LHD originally, we don’t really understand that change.
As you can see from the video, the car is completely road legal, but mostly used as a show car and to promote his business.
Is it a waste of money, or well spent?
