Subaru Impreza WRX UK 300 – An excellent example of the special-edition WRX UK300 created to celebrate Richard Burns and Robert Reid winning the WRC World Rally Championship in 2001.
In 2001 Richard Burns and his co-driver Robert Reid won their first, and only, World Rally Championship title driving a Prodrive-prepared Subaru Impreza. In celebration of this achievement Subaru worked with Prodrive and the designer of the WRC car, Peter Stevens, to create a special-edition Impreza for the UK market, limited to 300 cars – the UK300.
Based on the WRX model, the UK300 was essentially a trim level upgrade with a list price of £24,995. The model provided the following extras over and above the standard WRX available at the time:
- Prodrive WRC Style headlights
- Prodrive front lip spoiler
- Prodrive rear high-level spoiler
- Prodrive/OZ Racing 18″ gold alloys with Pirelli P-Zero tyres
- White side markers and indicators on the wings
- UK300 badges on the wings, boot and intercooler
- Blue Lux Suede interior
- UK300 logos on the footwell mats and on the boot carpet
- Numbered interior plaque with UK300 logo
- WR Blue paintwork
While the cars were Prodrive-styled, they did not come with the Prodrive Performance Pack (referred to as the WR Sport Performance Pack in the brochure) as standard, instead this was offered as a £1,600 optional extra.
Our example here is number 295/300 and is in fantastic condition. It has only travelled 18,000 miles and comes with a full service history including a recent cambelt service. Finished in World Rally Blue with a Blue Lux Suede interior, Imprezas in this condition rarely appear and, with the cachet of the Richard Burns connection, it’s a must for any enthusiast or collector.
