SUBARU IMPREZA WRX STI VER­SION 5

Unique Cars - - AUCTION ACTION -

IT’S HARD to be­lieve Suby’s WRX has been with us for so long. Based on the hum­ble Impreza sedan, the all-con­quer­ing REX en­joys a huge fol­low­ing to this day. Its most recog­nis­able and sought colour scheme is the blue and gold of the world rally cars made fa­mous by the late Colin McRae.

Only 399 of the flag­ship two-door STI mod­els ever made it to Aus­tralia, mak­ing them a rare sight and keenly sought. This winged Ja­panese war­rior re-set the bound­aries for the word per­for­mance, and punches out an at­ten­tion get­ting 206kW; good for zero-100km/h in just 4.9 sec­onds. Im­prezive!
