  1. Hello, Welcome to the sale of my very rare 1 of 300 Subaru WRX GB270. Full Subaru Dealer/ Specialist History - 11 Stamps Collectors Car Build Number 215 First registered and pre delivery inspected by Ian Grieve Subaru of Falkirk on 23.01.2008 this example has had 4 enthusiast keepers. Notably, the MOT history is exemplary having never had an advisory placed against it, testament to the manner in which its been maintained throughout the years. Service History 12.03.07 Subaru Monk Heath Motors 956 miles 03.04.04 Subaru Ian Grieve Falkirk 10632 miles 28.08.09 Subaru Ian Grieve Falkirk 20560 miles 11.03.10 Subaru Eaglesham Garage 30839 miles 15.09.10 Subaru Ian Grieve Falkirk 40492 miles 23.08.11 Subaru Ian Grieve Falkirk 56180 miles 25.06.12 Subaru Eaglesham Garage 60306 miles 30.05.13 Subaru Eaglesham Garage 70739 miles 10.06.14 Auto Service Specialist 77849 miles 12.08.16 Auto Service Specialist 88288 miles 11.10.18 TVS 92434 miles 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.

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.
