2005 SUBARU IMPREZZA WRX STi SPEC C TYPE RA
Presenting in a typical Bright Blue with black fabric interior trim.
One of only 300 examples built and only ever sold in Japan.
The owner purchased this car and owned it in Japan. When he returned to Australia in 2015, it came with him to Adelaide as a personal import. It has been fully complied.
The Spec C Type RA (record attempt) is notable for it’s successful development at the Nurburgring. In 2004 testing, a record lap time of 7 minutes 59 seconds was recorded.

223Kw of power

Shorter gear ratios
Mechanical rear LSD
8000 RPM redline

In short, this car is lighter, more powerful and more agile than a regular STi. The understeer and turbo lag that is sometimes talked about with these cars, does not apply to this model. With the sound deadening deleted nothing is held back from the driver and everything seems connected. The noise is not uncivilised and easily managed on a normal road trip.
