Rare Subaru Impreza STi 22B evaluated higher than new Porsche 911
A 24-year Subaru Impreza STi 22B with around 58,000 km (36,000 miles) under its belt will go on sale in late August, expected to fetch £100,000–120,000 ($120,000–145,000).
You can buy a new Porsche 911 starting from £89,800 in the UK, but that’s beside the point. The strictly limited edition of the Impreza coupe was produced to celebrate Subaru’s third WRC triumph in a row. It also coincided with the automaker’s 40th anniversary. Only 425 units was made, out of which 400 settled in Japan. The example on sale is number 318.
The special edition features a new body kit, tweaked suspension and a traditional combination of royal blue body with 17-inch BBS wheels finished yellow. The original car (see video) also had a sporty-looking blue and black interior.
Power for the limited series came from a 2.2-liter flat-four engine boosted to 280 PS (276 hp / 206 kW). A five-speed manual transmission sent the torque to both axles.
The listing mentions that the car has belonged to the same owner over the past 18 years, but doesn’t provide much detail beyond that.
