It is generally accepted that the GC8 first generation Impreza was the best to come out of the Subaru factory. It dominated the world of Rallying for most of the 1990s and its road going versions enjoyed the same dynamics and 25 years ago these were in a class of their own! The last edition of the GC8 was the heavily evolved version which was the strongest and most impressive. Built to factory specification and with the hardcore STI performance tweaks this car has a truly epic feel.

With ABS, air conditioning/climate control, electric windows, central locking, four-wheel drive and the iconic blistering 280bhp engine, this 2000 example is number 176 of only 2000 cars produced, therefore making this a true survivor and a much rarer car than standard GC8s. In addition to the impressive STI specification, other additions were made including special colour coding and cosmetic changes to spoilers, racing aluminium pedals, special bucket sports seats, blue colour coding to facia panel and the iconic gold alloy wheels which were unique to this model as well as the roof mounted ventilator.

Recently imported from Japan, the car also comes with a good Japanese history which shows (upon translation) that it has the coveted Grade 4B which is one below a brand-new car of Grade 5 in Japan. The history file also includes a couple of original handbooks (albeit in Japanese). The speedometer has also been electronically re-calibrated to miles upon its importation. Most RAs were put in motorsport, so to find a road going version in excellent condition with great mileage like this is so hard to come by. This Impreza is in stunning general condition throughout. Recently serviced and now registered with the DVLA, this Impreza is ready to be enjoyed on UK roads and will come with a new MoT test certificate.
