More about this Subaru Impreza

1996 Subaru Impreza Version 2 WRX STI '555' edition. One of just 500 examples produced for the Japanese market to commemorate Subaru winning the World Rally Championship in 1995 with Colin McRae. As a consequence of being a Japanese Direct Market (JDM) vehicle, all 555 edition Impreza's found in the UK are imports. This one made it's way to our shores in 2017, and has been in the custody of one private owner since then, although 2 owners show on the V5 registration document, the first owner being the importer. This vehicle is correctly UK registered and has recently been MOT'd. It has covered just 88,500 KM which is just on 55k miles, and is backed up by lots of documentation, albeit in Japanese. Since we bought the car earlier this year, we have had all four wheels refurbished and finished with new centre caps and tyres. The entire body has also been resprayed by specialists T W Brotherton in it's original colour of 53C blue, at a cost of over £5,000. Happily it needed no welding or filler at all prior to painting. It was then finished with original decals from new genuine old stock. Consequently, it now looks just as it did the day it left the factory. In addition to the paint, we replaced the flaky inlet manifold with a refurbished item, so under the bonnet it now looks original and unmodified. Everything else about the car is completely standard and original too. Even the exhaust is a factory option upgrade from new (unusually it is a single piece from the tailpipe back to the cat, and although a larger bore it is not too loud). The car suffers from no rust at all, and all the arches and underside are as solid as you would expect from a Japanese import. Any inspection is welcome on this. All of the seats and carpets are original and are in great shape too, with minimal wear. It even comes with the sought after over rugs which are like hen's teeth to find nowadays. The air conditioning is ice cold, and all the interior electrics function as they should. In essence, this car is as good an example of a version 2 Impreza as you are ever likely to find. The 555 is a difficult model to find now, and particularly so with such few miles. Most are rusty, modified high mileage scrappers. This is a future classic and sound investment for sure, and worthy of any car collection. Serious enquiries only please, on 01242 898 986.
