Remember these next few words…
This was quickly determined by Subaru upon the initial release of the very first WRX in 1994. The car was an instant success, appealing to motoring aficionados around the globe for its inconceivable performance and its signature “Boxer Burble”.
All-wheel-drive, short-wheel-base, turbocharged, analogue:
These are the fundamental ingredients to cook up the perfect road/rally storm
Operating with a superior version of the flat-four 2.0L turbocharged unit first seen in the Liberty RS Turbo married with a symmetrical all-wheel-drive drivetrain the Subaru WRX earnt its status very quickly as a “giant-killer” putting most 6 & 8 Cylinder cars to shame. Even in comparison tests against more exotic and expensive models, the ‘Rex’ was never disgraced.
Offered in Nippon White with a Black over White cloth interior, this rare, early, low kilometre, one-owner from new and exceptionally conditioned WRX is not only a rare find but a one-way ticket to bringing out the inner youthfulness from within.
Sitting in the driver seat, you find yourself being embraced by its tight, yet comfortable factory bucket seats tucking you into a poised driving position gazing at a factory leather bound Nardi steering wheel and white backdrop tachometer and gauges – It’s a perfectly engaging place to be.
The WRX comes standard with power steering, power windows, ABS, bucket-seats, air-conditioning, leather-bound gear leaver and steering wheel providing humble yet satisfying luxuries that comfort the driver whilst burbling around town ... (or ploughing around a rally track in opposite lock) – wait … what? who said that?
Accompanying the car is its original logbooks, full Subaru service history and set of factory keys.
WRX’s have been a popular choice for many motoring enthusiasts since its release. The early shape being the most desirable for its representation of the Peter ‘Possum’ Bourne and Colin McCrae cars that changed Subaru’s rallying reputation from fledgling to champion status.
With a very scarce quantity of examples like this existing today, this car is a perfect match for an avid enthusiast, a viewing is an absolute must.
