Legnum VR-4 Type S - With Rare Tan Leather Interior.




Purple - Blue Metallic.


The 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, with capability for comfortable high speed cruising, as well as being a car that enjoys being hussled through country lanes. The highest performance and best equipped estate car currently possible to import from Japan!
This example has a rare combination of tan leather interior with probably the best colour of all for these. Power is supplied by a V6 2.5L Twin-Turbo Intercooled 24 valve engine - delivering smooth, strong power. 5 Speed Tiptronic Transmission, Anti-Yaw rear differential system, permanent 4WD, dual front SRS airbags with Nardi wood leather rimmed steering wheel, Anti lock brakes, power assisted steering, blue lightly tinted electric windows with Auto up/down on drivers window, central locking, privacy rear windows, rear spoiler, high level rear brake light, front driving lamps, side mounted wind deflectors, rear luggage blind and luggage net. The full original factory Hi-Fi kit is also installed, comprising a single din Radio/cassette unit with 10 Disc boot loader - neatly fitted (by the factory) into the o/s corner, behind a removable cover. Wheels are an original 16" alloy items fitted with 1/2 worn Falken Zeix ZE515 tyres of size 205/55/R16.
The auction grade is 4 (Auction Sheet is available) This car is in outstanding condition. Leather is in unmarked condition and this has been a non smokers car since new (See Pics). There are some marks on the tan leather in the boot - these will be valetted whilst we're preparing the car at our UK premises near Brighton once the car arrives. On the rear bumper there's a small dent / scratch. Each of the front doors and the top of the tail gate have a small pin dent and also there's a small dent on the leading edge of the o/s quarter. These small dents will be professionally removed with the service of a dent removal specialist - invisibly in other words. We have mentioned these faults so we can give a full, accurate honest description. Aside from these minor faults this car is unmarked. Also, of course - having been a car that's been used in the Tokyo region all of it's life - this VR-4 has suffered no corrosion (Japanese don't use salt on roads outside of mountian areas further North).

In all likelyhood - this car's been fastidiously washed and polished regularly and not driven hard at all - judging by it's outstanding condition. 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.
