To be really interesting to cynics like small CAR, an Imp variant has to have something to make it stand out from all the other Imp variants. Like sheer power, as in the Emery Imps. Or far-out body engineering, as in the Zimp. Or a mixture of both as in the Imperator GTS. Which is what this aggressive Abarth-esque model is called
Traditional motorists were shocked to the core way back in 1963 when the Imp appeared with an aluminium engine lump, in the back, canted sideways and with an overhead cam. Now everyone has done it but the Imp still has a major claim to distinction - it is the cheapest British four-wheeler.
