This should be interesting. My number 1 Subaru dream car followed by an S202 for a very close second.

A true gem. I would not be surprised if it cracks $200k. Also, whoever is placing bid's passes the vibe check - 555

Interesting. Can't be registered or driven on the street legally. I suppose someone could leave it in their garage for 2 more years and do a paper import.

Took me nearly a month to get used to the switch in my Justy after moving back from Japan(all those years ago). I ended up getting pulled over once as I was wanting to turn off my windshield wiper and hit my lights instead. SPs thought I was flagging them or something.



I will make the same mistake when I take out my Sambar firetruck as well.

When I use to travel a lot during graduate school, theyíd send me to Australia and the a South Pacific and I would do the same thing in the rental cars. We had to be very cognizant while drive especially in winding areas because our tendency is to turn to the right in an emergency and theirs is to turn to the left.

You get use to it pretty quick.

I would rather build one that I can drive for far less. $312k Subaru that someday will sell for a lot less. Man the roaring 20s are here again.

I actually hate people like you. "I can build one better for less" No, you cant. You do not own an auto factory, and your POS would have not even 1/1000th of the significance this car does. Your comments are ridiculous...roaring 20s? You know nothing about the collector car market.

Yes it can, under show and display which permits 2500 miles/year and in two years it will be unlimited under 25 yr law

Dunno. These cars seem to keep selling for more money each time we see one for sale.

I'm looking at upwards of 80k for the one I'm building and I can promise you it will be far superior than the original factory car from every standpoint ...other than rarity.

Why does one need to own a "factory" to build a great car?

Whomever bought that car probably didn't even feel a dent on their balance.

Dude musta looked at his phone and saw one number change and was like "Oh, the auction must have finally posted" and moved on with his life.

This is good for Subaru fans. It is nice to see these cars become part of the collector car market. However, to pull this kind of money is usually going to be about originality not DIY. I really think older WRX/STI cars that are well kept and original are going to hold and or go up in value if they are fairly original as it becomes harder to find new enthusiast manual transmission cars, since manufacturers are abandoning that segment.

As far as who buys such a car, well if you ever watch the TV auto auctions there are a core of people out there that will spend crazy amounts of money on unique, usually rare and original cars.

Collector car values will always ebb and flow. People lose interest, gain interest, and fads come and go. There are a limited number of genuine artifacts however. As time goes on there are even less and the more desirable an item is, the less likely it will pass hands often.

What you are describing is someone who would rather build an AC cobra kit than buy one. Not that you have the money for the genuine AC or the 22b. That probably has to do with your comment as well. A hint of jealousy and a touch of immaturity?

You donít have much of an argument if your first words are personal insults to a person you donít even know.

So, First of all calm down and do some research and learn. Classic cars are related to demographics. How many guys on are running out to buy Model A Fords. Not as many because the guys interested in them are dying. All cars will have high demand when the demographics are right and then low demand when they are not. Sorry but your kids donít give a **** about your old car, they will just sell it to get the cash.

Now I agree the 22b has some significance, true and as a collector there were only so many. But the experience you feel in that car can be replicated for far less money.

If you donít think there is a huge bubble in the car market, just wait. Itís happened before. Remember when every muscle car was 6 digits because the boomers were retired and wanted their high school dream car. Many sold for half or less when no one was interested.

Japanese cars from 80s and 90s are going up now because of the demographics. People who grew up then have money to buy. As I said the next generation will not care as much.

And really for 300k there are so many great cars that blow the 22B away. But this was likely bought by someone who already has hyper cars and Porsche GT cars and has plenty of money.

Now if we print money to infinity like we are currently then yes these assets will go up. But history shows you canít print forever without some serious consequences.

Read my post to the other guy. no jealousy or immaturity, the exact opposite. Even if I had 300k for a car I would not buy a collector car that I canít drive because every mile it will lose value. I buy cars for the experience, only drivers, never garage queens. When I am done with the car I want it to be well used showing how much fun I got out of it.

And honestly if I had 300k for cars, I would own a bunch of them, not one.

Also, Printing money has some side effects like inflating assets.

That was my point. For some reason people took it as a dig on the 22b, which it clearly was not.

I hope Subarus go through the the roof, my 04 WRX wagon and 16 BRZ will start appreciating - just donít count on it

As it was already said, someone spending $300K on a car probably does have a collection....
