Description

We have always been a big rally enthusiast, including the Japanese brands, because we don’t really care where they originally come from, as long as they go fast. And what’s even better about having one of the iconic founders: the Subaru Impreza 2.0 GT AWD Turbo. With its very specific engine noise, it is an unmissable wolf in sheep’s clothing. Because let’s be honest, the car does not look very exuberant. But that’s just so much fun. The enthusiast immediately notices, and unsuspecting other road users do not. For example, a sporty father can, with the children in the back seat and his wife next to him, guietly drive to his mother-in-law for a mandatory visit. Once arrived, he suddenly remembered that he did not lock the house, let the oven burn or had to refuel: everything that is just a little credible excuse, is allowed to get in again for some extra, and now faster, miles. And maybe accompanied by your son (or a daughter ..) with the same “car genes” so that he understands you fully, and already took a seat in the Subaru before you did.

Enjoy a great and smoothly running boxer engine, equipped with a turbo and intercooler and bringing 218 hp on the road. That may not seem like a lot by current standards, but grip is everything. And this four-wheel drive has a lot of it. And also in a very easy to control manner. The car feels very safe and is giving the feeling that you have everything under control without wanting to be overconfident. A family car that can be used as a sports car? Yes, you can see it that way.

But then immediately comes the downer …. most have been chased over the years and have gone through the hands of many ignorant young men. Of course you don’t want a car like that. Then you buy the misery of another, and a dream has gone up in smoke. But then how do you get a very real one? Well, that might be easier than expected in this case, because take a look at the photos of the Impreza that we offer here. The car really looks absolutely perfect, both in terms of technology, appearance and interior. All technology works as it should do, the interior is neat and shows no damage, cracks or stains. The paintwork is undamaged and is as smooth as a freshly made sushi. However, the front and rear bumper and the rims have recently been repainted, purely for cosmetic reasons. The invoice for this is of course present.

On January 9, 2001 (as one of the last in this series) the Impreza was delivered by the Dutch dealer Adriaanse from Eindhoven. Even the first set of carpets with the dealer name on it are still on the floor of the car. All booklets are available, supplemented with invoices that proves regular maintenance. The second owner shows up on June 21th., 2008. Until recently he also maintained the car very well (among other things, 4 new tires were fitted, of course from Bridgestone), but also rarely drove it, because his work was in his hometown, and he did not want to use the car for short trips. The family trips and just for fun driving around do not bring many kilometers on the clock. The current original mileage is only 60.049 km. Which of course is extremely low, and still good for many years of Japanese driving pleasure.

This is really an Impreza to cherish and enjoy pure originality and good maintenance and possession. Unique in its kind, that’s for sure.
