As I said its local so thats a hug bonus
There was no type R body dropped on it.
It's a very limited edition. 1000 units total.
WRX (non STI) type R body , with the WRX RA running gear installed while rolling down the asmb line. Pretty sure to commemorate the 1997 WRC manufactures championship win & the prodrive built Type R's that won that title.
In Japan there are "Factory Special Models" that many people outside Japan aren't even aware of or think are mythical.
From what I've seen in another forum regarding this car , the exporter who found it ( very highly regarded ) & the guy who imported it have done alot of searching of info to verify this is one of those "specials"
It's mainly a reasonable price due to the fact it I'd a WRX not an WRX STI.
My 2 cents.
