Legnum VR-4 Type S. Full Spec. - Unmarked Tan Leather.




Purple 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, Traction control (TCL) power assisted steering, blue lightly tinted electric windows with Auto up/down on drivers window, central locking with remote on the key, privacy rear windows, rear spoiler, high level rear brake light, front driving lamps, side mounted wind deflectors, bespoke rear luggage area liner and retractable luggage cover. There's an Alpine 10 Disc changer in the boot, together with a TV system - which can be connected to a DVD player also. The screen is ratractable, electrically. Please note that Japan's TV system is different to UK's - so it may not work for UK channels. There's an HKS turbo timer fitted too - to help the turbos cool after a faster drive. All accessories are supplied at no extra charge with this car. Wheels are 17" Versus alloy items fitted with 1/2 worn Falken Zeix ZE515 tyres of size 215/55/R17.
The auction grade is 4.5 (Auction Sheet is available) This car is in outstanding, if not incredible condition. It's without a doubt the best condition Legnum VR-4 we have sourced in the last 2 years! Leather is in unmarked condition and this has been a non smokers car since new (See Pics). There are no stone chips, no pin dents or signs of previous repairs. All we could find are 2 light marks on each quarter, which look like areas where pin dents may have previously been repaired. In any case, the car's unmarked and needs no repairs at all! Checking the wheels, we found only one very light scratch on the front nearside rim. 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.

This includes full UK conversions, minor paintwork as described, valetting, 12 months comprehensive warranty, six months road tax and 12 months MOT.
Alternatively (bearing in mind this car is SVA exempt) if you're a technically minded DIY sort, why not complete your own UK conversions (We'll be happy to provide guidance information for this) and rUK egistration? It's easy!! This way, you can save - and have the car for just £5,600!
