Impreza Sti 555 Sport Wagon
555 Blue (53C)
This is a rare V - Limited 555 model (No 38 of 555 built) which was made in Subaru's 555 sponsor racing colour, with special numbering on the back together with a plaque to proudly display Subaru's 1996 WRC victory. The seats also carry a commemorative logo on the back rest for each front seat.The STi Version 3 Wagon is one of the most interesting and capable of the classic model 5 door Imprezas - which was only built for the Japanese domestic market officially. It was on the STi Version 3 that Subaru chose to introduce 4 piston signature front brake calipers with 2 piston rear callipers to match. The STi 2 and 3 models also carried the largest turbo of this range which was the same unit as fitted to the rare 22B variants. The engines are Sti blue printed units with stronger internals and an 8,000 rpm rev limit (Normal WRX's are 7,000) packing 280+ bhp as standard. The STi 3 is also distinguishable by it's updated vented bonnet, light green tint on windows, updated rear spoiler with integrated central brake light and the red and white rear lights. The Sti 3 interior was also of a brighter design than previous versions, with embossed front seats carbon facia around the dials. Further mechanical improvements from Subaru Technica International include a carbon fibre front strut brace, uprated intercooler, full Sti Exhaust. Optional side wind-deflectors are also fitted and this car is also equipped with the expensive original option 3 channel ABS system. It's a full option car. For the sports driver who wants reliable high capacity load carrying capability without the weight penalty,outstanding 4WD road holding, STi performance and reliability - this is the wagon to own. Better dynamically than the later heavier and more watered down ( rare) STI wagons, performance for money - you'll be hard pressed to find better. Classic Impreza Sti performance - with all the practicality of a normal 5 door wagon. Cosmetic Performance Improvements: The front bumper is an original 22B item. Wheels are by Wed Sports - 16'' items which help improve the look of the car. Tyres are approx half worn. STi mud flaps are fitted. Mechanically this car's standard aside from a KN washable panel filter. Inside, there's a Greddy boost gauge, a turbo timer, Lamco (Original Subaru option) gauges to display Oil pressure, Oil Temp Voltage, Sony hifi with CD changer remote control, metal pedal covers.
Condition: Our full array of pictures will speak for themselves - to show the outstanding condition of this Impreza STi 3 555 Sports Wagon. If you've been looking for the very best you can find - then you'll know this is it. Note especially the engine bay, lack of any rust at all on the underside and the unmarked interior. This is a grade 4 car of low genuine mileage and has been a non smoker's car. Note there are original Subaru rubber floor mats, ideal for use in UK where roads are often wet.Condition is outstanding - The following are really too small to repair, but mentioned to give a complete description: There's 3 minor pin dents on the o/s/f wing. On the bottom of the n/s/f door there are also 3 small pin dents. These are only small and too minor to require repair, bur can be repaired as an option if desired.
Test Drive: Mechanically it's also in perfect condition. Strong power with good response, a nice quiet engine with no noisy valve gear or signs of a hard pushed engine. Brake discs usually suffer from heavy wear on Imprezas - if driven hard for most of their lives. This example's discs are visually in very unworn condition. We test drove this car for approx 5 km after warming up - which revealed a very tight feeling car with a strong engine and much improvedhandling over standard - albeit with a harder than standard ride too. Clutch has plenty of life left and brakes feel strong and disc-warp free (Another usual fault on Scoobies - but not on this one!). There are clear signs this car's been well cared for and regularly serviced. Oil has also recently been changed.
