We present for sale this outstanding, ultra-low-mileage Subaru Impreza WRX-STI Type UK with Prodrive Performance Pack in completely original and un-molested condition.
The type UK 2005 chassis featured a new front sub-frame and uprated suspension components along with a wider rear track to improve the responsiveness of the already superb chassis.
These cars also have a heavily revised drive train comprising front and rear limited slip diff’s and a Driver Controlled Centre Diff referred to as DCCD which allows the torque distribution to be adjusted between 35/65 and 50/50 front/rear.
New wider 10 spoke alloy wheels painted in traditional gold came as standard along with some subtle upgrades to the interior with more colour coding and a re-styled 3 spoke leather steering wheel.
Although these revised cars came with the established flat-four engine from the previous version producing 262bhp, the Prodrive Performance Pack was a dealer option offered from new. This package which is fitted to our example, includes an uprated exhaust system and a re-mapped ECU which increases the engine power substantially to 301bhp giving much improved performance.
Cosmetically, the car is presented in superb original condition throughout and has to be seen in the metal to be truly appreciated.

This STi was first registered to the original owner Mr A Bate on 14th September 2005 at supplying dealers Carstins Subaru in Balsall, West Midlands. The car was purchased by its 2nd owner Mr P Doherty in May 2008 with the car having covered around 5,000 miles and covered approximately 2,000 further miles in the car before selling it to its current owner and Subaru enthusiast in March 2009.
The current owner has maintained the car in its original condition and has covered just 6,000 miles during his eight and a half years of ownership with the car being mainly in storage for the last 6 years.
The Service records show regular servicing and maintenance by the Subaru dealerships and Subaru independent specialist Graham Walker of Chester.
