This particular model is finished in Feather White. The BBS Alloy Wheels are Unmarked and are Covered by Matching Toyo Proxes Tyres All-Around. It hosts an Enhanced Multi-Media Interface that hosts CD+MP3+USB+SD+Bluetooth Audio Connectivity.

 

Light Weight Enhancements Include:

Roof Vent, Lightweight Boot Lid, Lightweight Bonnet, Lightweight Glass All Round, Lightweight Roof Skin With Roof Vent, Lightweight Interior Carpets/No Sound Deadening/No Carpets In The Boot, Lightweight Battery, No Rear Washer Wiper, Lightweight Electric Window Motors.

The Type RA makes exactly 276 horsepower but its true output estimates are of more than 300 horsepower.

Type RA Spec C; RA stands for “Rally Applicant.” It’s a car intended for racing and is, therefore, stripped of all un-necessary weight adding luxuries to attain maximum weight reduction. It also has an adjustable centre differential that can be locked from the cockpit and a roof vent that opens manually- as on rally racers. The hood and roof metal is thinner, and so is the car’s glass. It has a enhanced super-quick steering ratio. With the extra power and more closely spaced gearing, the STi Type RA Spec C moves to 60 mph in 4.3 seconds.

 For those who are familiar with the Subaru Impreza Range The Spec C Type RA requires no introduction. Powered by a 2.0 Turbo-Charged Engine, it sends power to the ground via its’ 6-Speed Manual Transmission. The engine produces 276 horsepower and is renowned for setting record breaking times at the Nürburgring.

This particular example is literally like new having covered only 24,000 miles and we have yet to see another one in this model, spec and condition anywhere on the market.

 

Engine / Transmission

In terms of mechanics the car drives absolutely superb and is a pleasure to drive in every regard, highly responsive, tight and smooth as it should be. The engine and all its components are in perfect order and the robust 2.0 turbo-charged engine is renowned for its staggering performance, wonderful sound, and incredible reputation.

The highly refined 6-Speed Manual Transmission is second to none. The transmission is both smooth and tight as it should be with a seamless gear change, providing an unparalleled drive and fantastic comfort.

 

 

Interior

The interior of the car can safely be described as immaculate throughout and comes with the:  Two-Toned, Sport Recaro Seats Finished in Blue Alcantara With Black Surround.

The Seats are unmarked and showing no signs of wear at all. The remainder of the interior and upholstery is in truly immaculate condition with no blemishes or dissuading marks on it anywhere.

 

In Summary, The car is a truly stunning and commendable example of a unique and almost impossible to come by vehicle. Quite possibly the only Spec C Type RA of this calibre on the market.

In AdditionThe Vehicle is Sold with a Comprehensive RAC Nationwide Parts and Labour Warranty, and 12 Months RAC Roadside CoverIncluded in the Price for Total Piece of Mind.
