The Appeal

With their scintillating performance, World Rally Championship heritage, endless tunability and superb handling characteristics, it’s little wonder that performance Subarus have been a mainstay of car culture for 30 years or more.

Imported from Japan in September last year and subject to an extensive scheme of maintenance and servicing since, this WR special edition presents in excellent overall condition. Bearing the equivalent of just under 55,000 miles, this is a genuine, low mileage example – one that is sure to be a hit with fans of the marque. Perfect to keep as-is for some practical and fun daily driving, or the ideal base for some modification and customisation, this Legacy offers a wealth of options to its new owner.

The History and Paperwork

  • First registered in Japan in 2004
  • Imported to the UK in September 2022
  • Two UK owners (the first of which was the import company)
  • Current owner since September 2022
  • MOT to September 2023
  • Apparently one of just 600 examples built
  • Complete with a number of invoices for maintenance and servicing
  • Currently on the private registration ‘M300LAJ’, which is being retained
  • The car will be supplied with its original age-related registration: BR04AOC

The Interior

  • Embroidered, black half leather upholstery with blue Alcantara inserts all presents very well, with minimal evidence of wear considering the age of the car
  • Dark grey carpets throughout, with new mats that feature smart blue binding to match the Alcantara
  • Electrically operated front seats
  • Electric windows and door mirrors
  • Upgraded double DIN Android Auto head unit with GPS and Bluetooth functionality
  • OEM CD changer supplied with the vehicle
  • Air conditioning, which the vendor informs us works very well and blows ice cold
  • We noted some slight cracks in the dashboard around the air vents
  • Otherwise, the trim and switchgear all shows very well, looking to be in fine condition
  • The vendor assures us that all the cabin’s features function just as they should, with no faults reported
  • Generous boot space with grey ‘Subaru’ branded liner, spacesaver spare wheel and jack

The Exterior

  • WR Blue Mica paintwork, inspired by Subaru’s iconic WRC livery, presents very well with no notable damage, scuffs or blemishes to report
  • Wind deflectors are installed on the side windows
  • Attractive factory-fitted bodykit includes a deep bonnet intake, revised front and rear bumpers, side skirts and a subtle rear spoiler
  • Bodywork, trim and badging all show in very good order, with nothing missing, no major damage and no corrosion we could discern
  • We only spotted two minor faults: a slight scuff to the near-side mirror casing and a crack to the off-side area of the tailgate trim (although this is hidden when the tailgate is closed)
  • Underneath, the floors, sills and inner wheel arches look to be in excellent condition, with no damage or corrosion
  • We are informed the car was fully undersealed after import
  • Lovely 10-spoke, 18-inch alloy wheels wear a handsome gold finish and show in fine fettle, with no notable kerbing or lacquer peel we could see

The Mechanics

  • 2-litre DOHC, twin-scroll turbo(VF38) ‘boxer’ engine – code EJ20
  • Tiptronic automatic transmission offers smooth shifting
  • All-wheel drive for great handling and road-holding
  • Inspected by a specialist after import
  • Upgraded aftermarket GFB dump valve (recirculation or vent-to-air) fitted, original will also come with the car
  • Bilstein performance suspension
  • The OEM turbo was refurbished less than 500 miles ago
  • Other work undertaken since import includes: new brake discs and pads all round, new cambelt, water pump, thermostat, fresh coolant, AC tensioner, rocker gaskets, suspension bushes, full differential and transmission service
  • The vendor tells us that the car runs perfectly, with no mechanical faults or issues they are aware of


Fast, practical and with a truly characterful powertrain, there’s much to recommend this handsome Legacy. Presented in fine condition with low mileage, we can’t think of many better ways to zip through the countryside with all the family and a brace of dogs.

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.
