2000 Subaru Legacy B4 RSK Twin Turbo


  • Incredibly impressive performance, and practicality
  • Long-term ownership, with just 1 former keeper
  • Well-maintained example, in excellent working order
  • Considerably rare, particularly on UK roads

The Appeal

Known the world over for its practicality, the Legacy tends to lurk in the shadows of its more performance-oriented Subaru brethren. The B4 RSK however, is no ordinary legacy, instead packing a twin-turbocharged EJ20, clever AWD system, and one of the more engaging automatic gearboxes on offer, with sequential manual, and steering wheel control options. 

In addition to packing enough power and technology to embarrass plenty of performance cars on the open road or twisties, it still lives true to the Legacy’s practical nature. There are four doors, 5 seats, plenty of interior comforts, a load-through boot, and more than enough space for all your daily needs. Very few cars seem to master the balance between impressive performance, and practicality quite like the B4 RSK. 

This particular example does of course hail from its home country, having been purchased by the previous keeper from new in Japan, then brought over to the UK. It was then purchased by the current keeper, who has thoroughly enjoyed and treasured the vehicle for over fifteen years. Throughout its time with the current keeper, this Legacy has been very well maintained, garage stored, and of course, rather well cared for. 

With excellent history, great mechanical health, and plenty of MOT left to enjoy, this practical performance machine is more than ready to impress its next lucky keeper.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
