Legnum VR-4 Type S - Facelift Model. *** 5 SPEED MANUAL - Low mileage! ***




Purple Metallic (T08)


We believe only a handful of facelift model manual Legnum VR-4 of good-quality have been imported to the UK since 2004. Most that are now being imported, are sadly of questionable quality. This example is not only in evidently stunning original condition, but also has the very desirable 5 speed manual gearbox, along with Type S specification with includes AYC, etc. With an outstanding 49,316 miles (79,349km) only from new, and genuine auction grade 4 - 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 pictures of the exterior, engine bay 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 too.
Equipment consists of a V6 2.5L Twin-Turbo Intercooled 24 valve engine. 5 Speed Manual 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, Carbon look facia trim, privacy glass on rear windows, original option wind deflector set, remote 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 Carrozzeria (Pioneer) 200W CD/Radio combined with high quality uprated speakers at each corner. All audio equipment is untested supplied free of charge.
The auction grade is 4. This car is in excellent original condition and has only had only 2 owners since new, the last owner keeping the car for 7 years. In all likelyhood - this car's been kept inside an indoor 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 very well kept and shows signs of having been regularly polished to keep it's quality. It feels perfectly smooth to the touch and has a deep shine to it. We found just 1 very light (Too small to warrant repair) pin dents on each of 3 doors (See pictures). The bonnet has some small touch up areas, presumably where stone chips have occured over time. The only significant damage to paintwork we found was the rear bumper where it looks to have nudged a wall at some point, which has marked the paint. It's been touched in and isn't noticable - but we'll respray the rear bumper to perfect match if the full UK en. Inside it's in excellent condition. There's 3 small holes on the lower trim near the steering column where something's been mounted in the past. We can trim these fill holes with black silicone to hide - before shipping. On the rear seat (n/s) there's some scratch marks left from a plastic child seat that was previously fitted. Please see pictures. This has been a non smoker's car. 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 49,316 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. OTR price just £6,995. This includes our fee, UK conversions, minor paintwork to rear bumper as described, valetting, 12 months comprehensive Motorcare warranty, six months road tax and 12 months MOT.
