HJA bring you this awesome Subaru Impreza WRX STI Type R Version 5 Limited recently imported from Japan. It doesn’t get much better than this, Grade 4, no accident history with genuine kilometres from new all backed with a full history from new. One of the most desirable versions from the GC8 range and being the limited model its even more rare and sought after.

We have a worldwide reputation for only selecting the best examples Japan has to offer for our stock. We sift through literally hundreds of cars monthly and only select a handful for our inventory.

Full service history from new:
1104km, 3916km, 5192km, 27474km, 35693km, 42940km, 54311km, 62571km, 70088km, 76855km, 84263km, 90798km

First impressions the bodywork is in brilliant condition and has been cherished by its owner in Japan. It has all the original panels and being a Grade 4 it has no repair history, it’s rare to find an original straight example such as this as so many have been abused.

It’s not just exceptionally clean on top, underneath is also completely rust free and the chassis rails have not been dented by incorrect jacking as seen with so many (just check out the pics!)

90’s Japanese performance imports are now extremely sought after worldwide, and is considered the next big thing in the burgeoning classic and performance car market.

Sourcing examples like this is like finding a needle in a hay stack. Overall if you are after a truly cherished example to enjoy yourself, to be part of a collection or as an investment look no further.
As with all our cars they will be sent for a full independent check over prior to sale.
