The Confusing Car Name Thread: S1/E2, 22B/WRC etc…

As we keep getting reoccurring posts on the naming of certain cars, I thought I would compile a thread with all the answers in one place. So, for any future discussions, people can be directed here.

If you’re here because someone has linked you to this thread, then chances are you have posted one of the dreaded trigger words. Now what did you say?

I said S1E2.

I said 22B.

    Reliant Robin. Wikipedia has got this one right and there is no excuse for the latter! :smiley:

    The only Reliant product that everyone wants in a rally game!  ;)

    Only because most people don't realise Del Boy and Rodney actually had a Reliant Regal!

    What do we make of this, from Scalectrix:

    The amount of cheapness in that is almost offending.

    That someone at Scalextric needs to do some more research @VirtuaIceMan

    Oddly if you look at the Sport quattro range on the Scalextric website...

    http://www.scalextric.com/uk-en/catalogsearch/result/?q=sport+quattro

    ...the evolution cars are all correctly designated "E2" apart from the one you have pictured: the researchers must have had a day off when they released that car. :smiley:

    Alright, question time for the 22b or similar? 

    555 branded car released officially?  Embroidered seat with 555 ?
  • KevMKevM Member Champion
    STi Type R 555 V-limited.

    There have been a lot of limited edition Subaru road cars @F2CMaDMaXX ;. I can only recall one that was available with 555 decals from factory, which was the Version II STi. Tweaked versions of the STi were produced for each generation year from 1996 onwards, these "V-Limited" cars were produced in limited numbers, with the total available being 555 for the first few years.

    There is a good guide on the JDM four door classic STi Impreza limited editions on the Impreza555 site:

    http://www.impreza555.com/road.htm

    There were also a similar run of V-Limited editions for the two door (Type R) Impreza's from 1996 onwards, as @KevM mentions, some of these (I think Version V and possibly Version VI STi Type R's) were produced in a limited batch size of 555 cars. There have been several V-Limited newage (2001 onwards) Imprezas and newage Imprezas were also produced in "Spec C" forms for the Japanese market, which were essentially base cars for competition use. The JDM also got the S20x range (S201, S202, S203 etc.) which continues to this day. The "S" variants are more track than rally focused though, so no rally branding there. 

    We got a load of Impreza special editions in the UK; the Series McRae (1995, 4 door, 200 built), Catalunya (1996, 4 door), Terzo (1997, 4 door, 333 built), 22B (1998, 2 door, 424 built, 16 official UK models), RB5 (1999, 4 door, 444 built), P1 (1999, 2 door, 1000 built), UK300 (2001, 4 door, 300 built), WR1 (2004, 4 door, 500 built) and RB320 (2007, 4 door, 320 built). None of these were available in full rally colours, but the Series McRae, Catalunya, Terzo and WR1 all included rally related decals. And of course the RB5 and RB320 were both produced in honour of Richard Burns.

    555 branding cropped up quite a bit in the early JDM special editions, but wasn't as prevalent on the first newages and of course it completely disappeared from 2003 onwards. 

    As for the 22B, that was only ever released in blue and without decals. I have seen one stickered up (at a Prodrive meet years ago) but that was done by the owner and not the factory/dealership!

    Top Gear didn't get involved with the S1/E2 debate, they just called it Audi Quattro: http://www.topgear.com/car-news/classic/20-lovely-things-london-classic-car-show#10

    This is probably a stupid question, but it's better to be silly rather than ignorant :)

    The Group B Audi Quattro in Dirt Rally is the S1, right?
