Legnum VR-4 Type S - Facelift Model. *** ONLY 23500 Miles from New! ***




Grey Metallic (A71)


We believe this is one of a handful of facelift 1999 Legnum VR-4 to go to the UK since 2004. With an outstanding 23,500 miles (37,878km) only from new, and of auction grade 4.5 - this particular example is in absolutely outstanding condition, resembling a nearly new car throughout and driving like a freshly built car too. Take a look at a picture of the underside and you'll see what we mean! 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, privacy glass on rear windows, roof rails, wind deflector set, central locking, Electric mirrors with retract mode, rear spoiler with high level brake light behind the glass, front driving lamps. Wheels are an original 16" items, fitted with 4 nearly new tyres of size: 205/55ZR16. There's a high quality 2 DIN Panasonic 200W CD/MD/Radio combined with a 12 disc CD changer located beneath the front passenger seat. All audio equipment is untested supplied free of charge.
The auction grade is 4.5 This car is in absolutely immaculate condition and has only had one owner since new. There is not a single mark to the interior, and has been a non smokers car since new (See Pictures). There's just a small section of laquer which has lifted on the swage line of the n/s quarter and another section on the rear bumper. The rest of the paintwork's in outstanding condition. 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 23510 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.
