 KEY FACTS

● This Impreza WRX STi Type RA Version 3 is a rare example of the ‘90s performance icon, which is recognised as one of the most impressive Subaru models of its era.

● It is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged ‘EJ20’ 16-valve flat-four, driving all four wheels via a five-speed manual gearbox and a Driver Controlled Centre Differential (DCCD).

● A Japanese-market example, this Impreza was imported into the UK and first registered with the DVLA in August 2020, and has had two UK-based keepers.

● The car has benefitted from a repaint in its original Feather White hue in 2022.

● The odometer now shows 139,000 km (86,000 miles) from new.

 

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

 ● This WRX STi Type RA is finished in Feather White, and features a bonnet scoop as well as a rally-style fresh air hatch on the roof, and the correct WRX boot lid decal.

● Inside, it features the correct grey, black, and red upholstery, with a three-spoke Nardi steering wheel.

● It rides on an aftermarket set of gold 17-inch Speedline ST2 alloy wheels, which are fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 tyres. Brakes were replaced in 2022 with OEM discs and Ferodo DS2500 pads

● A non-original Pioneer Carrozzeria stereo has been fitted in the cabin.

● The car comes with a recent invoice for work performed in 2021, and the spare wheel.

 

CONDITION

● There is no damage on the exterior that I am aware of. The whole car was repainted in its original Feather White colour in 2022. Inside, there is a hole in the driver’s seat bolster, and fading of the STi badging on the front seats.

● The radio and the tweeter speakers are both disconnected.

● The car has an MOT valid until June 2025.

 

SERVICE HISTORY

 ● This Impreza’s most recent maintenance was carried out inJuly 2021 by EJM Preparation. The work comprised of an engine oil and filter change service, along with the replacement of the clutch and slave cylinder, timing belt, tensioners, water pump, spark plugs, gearbox oil,  rear differential oil, as well as some repairs to both of the rear wheel arches.

● The car was repainted in 2022, since which a ceramic coating has been applied.

● The car has always been stored in a heated garage and only used in good weather

● The underside is in great condition and was undersealed before coming over to the UK

SUMMARY

 This Subaru Impreza WRX STi Type RA Version 3 is a rare Japanese performance saloon. Thought to be one of just 944 built, boasting its correct ‘EJ20’ flat-four, and benefitting from a recent repaint, this rally-inspired modern classic would make a fun addition to any collection, a welcome car show attendant, and an exciting companion for weekend drives on its new owner’s favourite B-roads.
