The GB 270 

A limited edition final model iconic Impreza 2.5 WRX saloon. The GB270, is limited to 
only 400 units (300 for the Impreza GB270 saloon and 100 for the Sports Wagon 
and offered around £7,600 in extra equipment. Benefiting from the 270 hp Prodrive Performance 
Pack which boosts power by 40 hp and torque by 74 lb ft to 310 lb ft, as a result the mid-range response 
is substantially improved. Other shared features include a lowered spring kit, ‘quickshift’ 
gear change, special carpet mats, MOMO ‘Air-Race’ gear knob, larger-diameter 18x7.5ins GT1 
alloy wheels and GB270 exterior badging and individually numbered interior plaque. Specific 
to the GB270 saloon are a WRC-style rear spoiler, stainless-steel mesh front grille, STI 
front lip spoiler and silver-finished alloy wheels. This car features the extra-cost upgraded 
GB270-branded Alcantara/leather interior which was a £1,600 option.

The car is an absolute blast to drive, the in house custom remap, increases power and boosts 
torque across a wider rev range than the standard engine improving on the standard bhp 
considerably. These improved characteristics ensure that driver has the responsiveness 
required for performance driving including all-important, mid-range overtaking. A revised 
engine management system, and a stainless steel sports exhaust system, plus a dump valve, 
the car is really all about mid range power. 

The Drive 

An extremely well thought out highly developed piece of kit that will out accelerate many 
modern day fast cars and cover cross country miles with a stability and turn of speed 
that has to be witnessed to be truly believed, these cars are supreme in this area. All this 
achieved with extremely comfortable suspension and plenty creature comforts. Few cars 
offer such versatility, practicality, reliability and sheer fun. The reserves of power and 
the outright ability of the handling will never be exploited fully by any normal driver 
on a public road. There are few models available in the current market at any time.

*Please note this is a 12 year old car. I have had the bonnet resprayed, the lower front lip and the arches to get rid of stone chips and surface corrosion. There is light corrosion on rear arch where it meets bumper and rear drivers door handle. These are not bad enough to need a respray but I am over critical! The only other minor issue is cracking of the fog light lenses. I also had the alloys refurbished so they are spotless. 

This is an appreciating classic, slightly lower mileage cars from used dealers are selling for north of £10,000; this is a very well priced car; especially with the costly alcantara interior.

If you have any questions or picture requests please just ask.

Thanks, Chris.


*Offer accepted on my house so just dropped price considerably to £6,500 from £7,750. That is really cheap for these limited edition cars.
