Legacy RSK B4 Blitzen
The German word “Blitzen” means “running faster than a bolt of lightning and for this B4 RSK version of the Legacy, it's appropriate. Endowed with Subaru's venerable 280 bhp EJ20 engine with twin turbochargers, this is a rare manual example. Special front and rear bumpers, side and rear spoilers, 17-inch aluminum wheels and other exterior parts are products of the highly acclaimed expertise of Porsche Design, which developed this vehicle together with Subaru. The BLITZEN is a high performance sports sedan of the first order with a refined form that speaks of sophistication. This car was sourced specially for a discerning customer who wanted a red example first and foremost, in standard condition right down to the original wheels. It will be one of, if not the only Blitzen Legacy B4 in the UK shortly.
Mechanical Specification includes: 2 litre 16 valve boxer 4 cylinder EJ20 engine with intercooled sequential twin-turbos making 280 bhp as standard, 5 speed manual gearbox mated to permanent 4 wheel drive, with powerful 4 wheel disc brakes and factory fitted Bilstein gas suspension. These combined help to offer a refined yet sporty ride with class leading load capacity. 0-60 in 5.6 seconds with ability to return 30 mpg when driven normally. Naturally there's ABS as standard too. The car is of standard mechanical specification. We are able to source performance items such as sports exhaust system, front and rear strut tower bars, progressive sports springs for suspension, shift knob, etc. These are available from Specification: Half leather bucket type sports seats withsports cloth inserts, electrically adjustable driver's seat, Kenwood high quality hifi with CD/MD/Radio, split folding rear seats, full set of Subaru original fitted mats, Momo SRS leather trimmed steering wheel, SRS airbag for passenger, leather trimmed shift knob, climate controlled air conditioning, electric door mirrors with retract mode, full electric windows remote controlled central locking.Exterior: UV cut privacy glass for all rear windows (Factory fitted) with pilarless glass on all doors, HID (Main Beam) headlights, Original Blitzen 17" alloy wheels with good tyres (215/45ZR17 Bridgestone Potenza G III's), original option wind deflectors door edge protectors, rear wash wipe. Special front and rear bumpers, side and rear spoilers, 17-inch aluminum wheels and other exterior parts are products of the highly acclaimed expertise of Porsche Design.Test Drive: As with each car we source, this example was picked for it's high quality. It's clear from the general condition, this example's never been driven hard and has always been well looked after. As such it drives without fault and the engine is purrrfectly quiet, no rattles or other signs of wear. Using the first turbo, to bring on boost from low rpm this car feels potent right from the off, then at around 4,500 rpm there's a transition / increase in power as the second turbo is introduced and the exhaust valve opens. Strongest power thereafter all the way to the redline at 7,500 rpm makes for a very quick production car! We found absolutely no mechanical faults to report / needing repair.Condition: Auction grade is 4.0. There are 2 pin dents on each offside door. On the rear spoiler there's some laquer which has peeled and also (to a very small extent) some laquer on the door mouldings which is just beginning to show signs of lifting. Each of these minor faults will be repaired as part of full UK included in the price. On the fuel filler flap there's a small chip and also a small scratch on the top corner of the o/s/r door. These smaller faults are too minor to require repair but are mentioned herewith to give a complete condition report. Interior is in excellent condition with no faults to report aside from a worn gear knob - We would recommend replacing this with a better designed Subaru speciality aftermarket item. See ashtray which shows this has been a non-smoker's car also. Note also the complete lack of corrosion, or oil leaks on the underside. Engine bay is also in excellent condition, with no rust on bolts, etc. Even the fins on the intercooler show virtually no flattening, further indicating this car's not been driven hard (Subaru intercooler fins will flatten if the car's driven at speed in rain, for example!). The UK OTR price inclusive of full preparation as described, 12 months MOT, 6 month's tax and a year's full comprehensive warranty is £9,685.
