Lot 275 - 1996 Subaru Impreza 'Series McRae'
|Result||Sold - £17,640|
The Impreza Series McRae launched in 1995 was the first in a run of limited edition Subaru Imprezas. The build run was limited to 200 cars and was created to commemorate Colin McRae’s first World Rally Championship win, for both driver and manufacturer, with the Subaru 555 World Rally Team. The Series McRae cars were built in the UK by Prodrive and were painted in Rally Blue mica. The specification included unique Recaro seats featuring open headrests, front wing and bonnet mounted badges and a numbered plaque on the centre console.
This Subaru Impreza Series McRae was first registered in October 1996. Supplied by the Brandon Motor Company in Edinburgh, this Impreza is registered with the DVLA as a one owner car. Submitted to auction from a private collection, this limited edition Subaru was discovered in a barn and it appears to have not moved for some time. A full recommissioning will be required for this car to be enjoyed as it was intended. This McRae Series Subaru is offered to auction with the original service and warranties book showing a number of early dealer stamps and some early MoT test certificates. Offered at no reserve, this car has the potential to be a rewarding project.
