So much history and legend can be summarised in three letters, WRX - the Impreza dominated the world rally championships; this is a true rally-car built for the roads.
In the early '80s Subaru decided to expand their global image through motorsports, and their sport of choice was rally. Shortly after signing Colin McRae, Subaru introduced the Impreza in 1992, a shortened version legacy.
With the release of the Impreza, Japan offered a special edition for their home market, a turbocharged variant named, the WRX (aka World Rally Experimental).
This is the first generation Impreza WRX 2000 AWD the 'GC8' - it's fitted with a turbocharged flat-four engine that produced nearly 220bhp, very fast by any standard with a 0-60 speed of 6.6s. Impreza WRX also has an all-wheel-drive system praised for being one of the best in the world, with independent suspension in all corners, this really helps to offer comfort and precision while cornering at speed.
This example has been owned and enjoyed by Roger since 1999, he's dry stored it in his barn since. It's a completely unmolested, unmodified example of the first generation WRX, and with some cosmetic and mechanical attention we know it'll turn heads.
