Registered brand new on the 23rd December 2002, the first owner was the now Late Mr Hugh Lamont who owned the car for twelve years. UK specified from Subaru main dealer in Den Haag, Netherlands, Mr Lamont, a well-known Subaru fanatic and avid member of the Subaru Owners Club was meticulous in his care for his cars and very focused in what he wanted this Subaru to be, hence the carefully researched programme of upgrades. His attention to detail is incredible and KGF Classic Cars had the pleasure of handling the sale of another one of his cars, a 7,000 mile MG Metro Turbo! It was only in 2014 and due to his declining health that the car was sold to serial low mileage car collector, Mr Gordon Maclean, who is the only other registered owner. An email with strict instructions to the new owner is provided by Mr Lamont including that it is only to be run on Shell V Power!
