from what i know.....these companies take the cars and add their own little touches to them and thats why they are given different names like you get the subaru impreza P1 which is touched up by Prodrive right? that means that Prodrive can now call that car theirs right?
you get the idea now? pretty straight forward really
as for the touches, most of them are performance wise and you get the exterior touched up a little too
another example....is the BMW Z4....Alpina put their own little touches to it and named it Alpina Roadster S
