The pristine carpets that have two sets of exclusive WRX 300 over mats such is the fanatical caring ownership. The dashboard and switchgear are showroom fresh as is the leather Momo steering wheel and bespoke aluminium gear knob. All functions, controls and gauges operate perfectly including the air conditioning. Lifting the boot lid reveals a quality tailored WRX 300 boot protector on top of the immaculate boot carpet as well as the original space saver spare wheel and Subaru tool pouch. A spotless, standard and preserved interior and clearly enthusiast owned.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
In correct factory specification, the WRX 300 as standard features the Prodrive Engine Performance upgrade package which was an expensive factory option on lesser WRX models. Peak power is quoted 265bhp at 6000rpm and 348Nm of torque 3200rpm to achieve thumping performance figures of 144mph top speed and 0-62mph in just 5.9 seconds! The engine bay is beautifully clean with all factory plates, label and stickers intact and Subaru stampings to the inner wings. The 5-speed quick shift short throw gear change maximises full use of the power. The unmistakable Subaru boxer engine soundtrack is further emphasised through the stainless-steel sports exhaust silencers fitted as standard with the Prodrive package.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Gorgeous exclusive 17” Gold alloy wheels fitted as standard to the WRX 300 are in perfect condition and fitted with matching Avon 215/45 R17 with masses of tread. Peer through the large spoke apertures and behold the sight of gleaming red calipers with Subaru inscription and large ventilated discs that cannot fail to set the pulse racing of any petrol head. The ABS and Electronic Brake Distribution system is as good as it looks with the power of this awesome road going rally car easily harnessed.
