Damien, How long have you owned your Subaru STI for?

Did you ever see yourself being where you are now, when you first bought the car?

What was the reason behind your choice of this car?

Mighty Arctic Beast

Owner - Damien Grant
Photographer - Matic Works
Interviewer - Sam Singh 

What are your future plans with this build?

Have you thought about, what your next project is going to be?

Damien, we know that you are the one to be different than the rest and you have so far pushed the limits with the stock body. But, do you think that with the growing role of WIDEBODY trend in today's car scene, that you will ever go that route as well?

Damien, there is no doubt that the ARCTIC BEAST looks freakishly fast, but we would like to know what kind of horsepower figures are we currently looking at?
