This example, a genuine Type R, was imported into the UK in 1999, has been highly modified engine-wise and now reputedly can produce 416hp . Please scroll to the bottom of the page for the mechanical specification.

As ever, based on the desirable 2-door shell, and with the bodykit, rear spoiler, and STi interior that these come with.

Fitted with  the correct 6-speed gearbox and DCCD, 17in Rota alloys with a matching set of 4 Pirelli tyres, Hayward and Scott 3in stainless exhaust system,  strut braces, Personal steering wheel, Defi boost gauge, and aftermarket stereo system

Also fitted with a Thatcham Cat 1 alarm/immobiliser system linked to the central locking.


Odometer reading 86000m (clocks and odometer have been converted to miles) and it’s been in the hands of 1 mature enthusiast owner since 2014, who’s lavished thousands on it and always had it serviced and maintained by the well-known HDC Subaru in Hebden Bridge.

Apart from general servicing, recent work includes new cambelt, pulley kit and water pump in Aug 2021, new alternator 2022, and new radiator in Feb 2023

We have a large history folder going back to the mid 2000’s,  the original (Japanese) book pack and 2 sets of keys and fobs

Whilst it’s currently MOT’d to January  2024, we’re happy to provide a fresh 12M MOT on sale

I can confirm it drives superbly, with amazing power and torque, and retains that signature Subaru sound that’s so addictive.

At the very bottom of the page, you’ll find our usual two videos: a walkaround appraisal, and driving impressions, which form part of the description.
