We believe this is the very first facelift 1999 Legnum VR-4 to go to the UK since 2004. This particular example is in absolutely outstanding condition, resembling a nearly new car throughout and driving like a freshly built car too. The facelift Legnum VR-4 Type S offers space, practicality, safety and high performance in an unusual package comprising a similar running gear to that of Lancer Evo's - with a more torquey engine than it's relatives. It's a wolf in relatively discreet clothing capable of carrying all that you need in style, give comfortable high speed cruising, as well as being a car that enjoys being hussled through country lanes. One of the highest performance & best equipped estate cars currently possible to import from Japan.
Main Differences between pre facelift & facelift models are of course bumper designs and the rear tailgate, quarter panel, spoiler and light design. Also there are over fenders over each arch - which widen the car to give it a broader stance. Inside, the seats are of an updated design, complete with matching inserts on the doors. Wheels are also of a fresher design.
Equipment consists of a V6 2.5L Twin-Turbo Intercooled 24 valve engine. 5 Speed Tiptronic Transmission, allowing full use of 280BHP, Anti-Yaw system, Traction Control, 4WD, dual front SRS airbags with Nardi leather steering wheel, ABS Anti lock brakes, power assisted steering, blue lightly tinted electric windows with Auto up/down on drivers window, central locking, Electric mirrors with retract mode, privacy rear windows, rear spoiler with high level brake light behind the glass, front driving lamps, side mounted wind deflectors.
A remote controlled car starter is fitted which also integrates a turbo timer. There's a Mitsubishi DVD Navigation TV system complete with a MD / CD / Radio head unit and speakers include factory fitted tweeters on each front door. Note the Navigation system isn't designed for use in the UK. All audio equipment is untested & supplied free of charge. Wheels are an original 16" items, fitted with 4 nearly new tyres of size: 205/55ZR16. We have a set of 17" Speed Star Gartmeier 2 piece alloys complete with half worn sports tyres which are of Legnum VR-4 fitment. These are in mint condition and priced at just £375.00 - when purchased with this car (Subject to availability as we currently have 2 Legnums for sale) Pictures of wheels are included in the slideshow on our website.
The auction grade is 4. This car is in absolutely immaculate condition. There is not a single mark to the interior, and has been a non smokers car since new (See Pic).
There's a couple of tiny stone chips on the front bumper and the rear bumper has some small marks to the paint. There's a very small scratch on the nearside rear spat and on the offside rear arch there's a small touch up mark. None of these faults warrant any repair - the car's in imaculate condition throughout - but we mention all faults regardless of size - so a customer can make a 100% informed decision.
In all likelyhood - this car's been kept inside a car park out of the elements for most of it's life and owned by a mature person judging by it's outstanding condition. Paintwork is like new and shows signs of having been regularly polished to keep it's quality since new. Paint feels perfectly smooth to the touch and has a deep shine to it.
Brake discs are unworn and the lack of wear shows this car's been driven carefully and well looked after. Test drive reveals a car with a very tight and as new feel - No warped discs, good strong engine and drivetrain, silent on cruising - Just perfect mechanically. Expect this car to be capable of completing a lot more trouble free miles with only 52,000 genuine miles from new.
These are excellent cars to drive with excellent road holding, and a superb engine, capable of cruising when needed and hussling a family comfortably at safe high speed, wheen the demand is there. Compare this 280 bhp performer to any other estate car of the same condition and mileage and price - you'll find nothing makes more sense as a fast family estate, especially considering the condition throughout.
