The WRX STi aggressive styling is instantly recognisable finished in desirable World Rally Blue, (Code O2C), with the added kudos of large bonnet scoop and huge rear spoiler all standard on this top performance model. Visually striking but importantly all spoilers, scoops and covers are designed to improve performance and downforce and on this example, are presented in superb condition. The aluminium bonnet has a few stone chips and the paintwork has a deep shine throughout thanks to the incredibly low mileage of just 13,968 miles. The STi badges and decals are immaculate and all tinted glass is factory fitment. This example is far removed from the normal high mileage, modified offerings and suitable for continued preservation.
The cockpit of this rally-honed WRX STi is finished in immaculate non-slip blue suede effect interior. The bucket seats with the distinctive STi motif have no visible wear along with the leather gear knob with red stitching and STi branded leather Momo steering wheel, also with red stitching. Pristine carpets are protected with STi carpet mats and all unique trim, materials and head lining is unmarked. Factory standard in all respects, the controls, gauges and radio CD player all function correctly. Lifting the boot lid reveals an immaculate boot carpet as well as the original space saver spare wheel and Subaru tool pouch. Ergonomically designed with the mid-mounted rev counter and highly visible red needle, this is what real driving is meant to be about! A cossetted and showroom fresh cabin.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
The highly tuneable Subaru Boxer Horizontally-Opposed 2.0 litre turbocharged engine is the ultimate incarnation and highly regarded producing 265bhp and 343 Nm of torque. A top speed of 152 mph and 0-62 mph in 5.5 seconds is quoted, still impressive pitched against today’s rivals. Opening the aluminium bonnet reveals the STI branded turbo intercooler in an immaculate engine bay with all factory plates, label and stickers intact and Subaru stampings to the inner wings. The short-throw 6-speed gearbox is sweet moving up and down the gears with precision making the most of the unmistakable Subaru boxer engine soundtrack!

This incredible Subaru Impreza WRX STi Type UK was first registered brand new in the UK on the 8th July 2005 having been ordered from Subaru Distributor, Liaco Ltd in Malta. The first owner, Mr Moffat cherished the car and on the first main dealer service decided to have fitted the Prodrive Blue mud flaps and also at this time requested the dealer to carry out the cavity wax service to the undercarriage, all documented with invoices. Used sparingly until 2011 with some MOT certificates and main dealer service invoices, the vehicle was then put into storage garaged with just over 11,000 miles. In 2018, after seven years in hibernation, it was booked into Subaru main dealer, Maple Leaf Garage Ltd for a full service with 11,355 miles and a cam belt was also carried out in the same year. Owned subsequently by avid Subaru enthusiasts, the last being Mr Walker who only sold the car to buy an even lower mileage example with just 3,000 miles!
The complete book pack and dealership point of sale literature is held within the leather document wallet and there are two Subaru remote keys and fobs. Documents in the history file include the important EC Certificate of Conformity, Sigma alarm installation certificate and Tracker document pack along with numerous main dealer invoices. An indoor car cover is included. Masters in World Rally Championship competition, why not experience the thrill in surely one of the best!?
MOT November 2021 and HPI Clear.
