The S203 was developed over the course of 2004 by Subaru’s own reigning World Champion, Petter Solberg. The car was built by STI to chase after BMW’s M Series vehicles and as a result the car produced 320ps and 422nm of torque thanks to a larger VF42 Twinscroll Turbo and a factory precision balanced engine.
Only 555 cars were built in Grey, Blue, White and Red, this would be the last time the iconic number 555 would be associated with a Subaru. Solberg had a large role in the suspension and tyre development of the car with his suggestions enabling the firm to produce its most stable set-up yet. The S203 was also fitted with the fastest steering rack fitted to a Subaru at the time, with a ratio of 13:1. STI Pink adjustable suspension, and anti roll bars were also fitted along with bespoke BBS 8.5 x 18 Inch wheels and Titanium exhaust back box exclusive to the S Series cars. STI’s designers turned to Recaro to design and produce a competition-style seat that offers support at high cornering speeds, but are also comfortable for daily use. Recaro put together the first fully reclining competition seat, consisting of a dry Carbon Fibre shell wrapped in Grey Alcantara.
This S203, Number 461 was first sold to Subaru’s home market and registered in March of 2005. It resided in Japan until it was imported by ourselves in early 2020. The car is now fully UK registered and passed its MOT test with no adversaries. S203 service book, Pink S203 information booklet, S203 key holder, unopened S203 brochure, Subaru handbook and dealer network book are present with the car.
