2006 Subaru Impreza WRX STI Type UK PPP Widetrack Hawkeye


  • Genuine mileage
  • Fantastic condition throughout
  • Full service history

The Appeal

There seems little point in noting Subaru’s credentials in rally car racing. This WRX variant of the Impreza is short for World Rally Experimental, but for those that are unfamiliar with the history, just type Colin McRae into your favourite search engine.
The WRX set the bar high with it’s four wheel drive capabilities and a turbo charged 2.5-litre engine, it’s one of the first consumer cars used for racing without much modification. The second gen Impreza has been through a couple of body alterations through its life, starting back in 2000 with the affectionately named ‘bug eye’, right through to 2007 and the far sharper looking ‘Hawkeye’ which we have here. Out of the factory, the car delivers 280bhp and will propel you from 0-60 in 5 seconds. For those fans of adrenaline out there, there’s the option of upgrading to the Prodrive Performance Pack (PPP) which this one has, increasing this cars output to 316bhp, and includes various upgrades such as an ECU remap, a high-flow exhaust system, and a larger intercooler, among other things.

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.
