A time warp Subaru Impreza 2.0 Sport AWD with 16,983 miles from new.

EQUIPMENT
Permanent AWD (All Wheel Drive) system, dual-range manual transmission, body coloured bumpers, front air dam, twin rear spoiler, side skirts, roof rails, frameless doors, front fog lamps, electric headlamp washers, tinted glass, hill-holder clutch, ABS, twin airbags, anti-theft immobiliser, electric windows all round, central locking, electric mirrors, 60/40 split rear seats. Dealer accessories; Tailored carpet mats.

EXTERIOR
The unique styling of the first generation Impreza in roadgoing form bears all the resemblance to the ultimate superpower in 1990’s rallying. This incredible 2.0 Sport AWD has covered just 16,983 miles from new with two family owners. Finished in factory original Bright Red, (Code 559), the uniform paint finish is simply stunning. All factory panels are pin straight with uniform gaps and only a touched in mark to the front bumper. All trim sections, glass, lights and badges are superb and the huge round fog lamps and the all-wheel drive system are a direct descendant from the Subaru’s rallying heritage. This preserved road-going example is simply remarkable.

INTERIOR
Commensurate with the 16,983 miles covered under extremely cossetted ownership, the interior is almost perfect. The Woven Cloth upholstery, (Code 720), is pristine and shows no wear or damage whatsoever. The door cards, headlining and carpets are immaculate and all functions and controls feel tight and brand new. All equipment is fully functional and the steering wheel and gear knob display unworn natural veins found only on super-low mileage examples. The luggage area with fully intact roller blind shelf is spotless and housed in the boot floor is the original space saver wheel and Subaru toolkit, both virgin unused items. The supplying Subaru dealer sticker is still in the rear screen and factory labels remain in the door apertures. The ultimate modern classic to seat five in comfort with a large boot, perfect for long distance touring!

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Powered by a 1994cc four-cylinder engine, the output is 116bhp and 172Nm to achieve 0-60mph in 9.7 seconds and 118mph top speed. The pristine engine bay is original and all components display the correct standard factory finish. Identity plates, labels and panels stampings are clearly visible. A five-speed manual, dual range gearbox is tight, sturdy and precise and perfectly mated to the AWD permanent all-wheel drive system. A superb example to drive with just a hint of the instantly recognisable Subaru burble.

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
The original light alloy 6J x 15in wheels are unrestored and in superb order with only the lightest of markings. Matching branded 195/60 R15 tyres have recently been fitted and have covered very few miles. The ABS braking system incorporates ventilated front discs to bring the car up to a straight and steady halt.

HISTORY FILE
Supplied new by Subaru Main Dealer, Carstins of Coventry, the car was registered new on 7th February 1997 to a Mrs Betty Wilkins who was the first of just two owners. In 2008, family member, Mr Edwin Waters, took ownership and the car has remained with him ever since and used as a second car, a Mk1 Vauxhall Corsa performing everyday duties. The total mileage from new is just 16,983 miles and the condition of this cherished example is a credit to both owners.

The original Subaru document pack holds all handbooks and point of sale literature as well as the service book with ten stamped entries from the supplying Subaru Main Dealer, Carstins. Both keys are present with dealer leather fob and there is an original sales brochure for the Subaru Impreza 2.0 Series.

Easy to understand why it achieved a JD Power gold award in 1997, the first generation Impreza is an extremely capable and sure footed modern classic and this example is without question one of the best of the survivors.
