It was in June 1995 that, to commemorate Colin McRae's victory on the 1994 RAC Rally (the first by a British driver since 1976) , Subaru sanctioned a 200-strong limited edition of its WRX model. Prepared by Prodrive, who also built the all-conquering competition cars, each one was finished in `Rally Blue' and featured Gold-coloured 16 inch alloy wheels, McRae decals, factory-fitted electric tilt/slide sunroof, and Recaro front seats. The as-original example now offered is number 170 of the 200 and
comes complete with a comprehensive service record and the benefit of a £7,000 main dealer garage visit as recently as May this year, during which: the engine was refurbished to OEM specification, the suspension and steering overhauled, and a new rear exhaust installed. `N434 BCE' has also been treated to replacement brake discs and calipers, refurbishment of the wheels, and a degree of remedial paintwork. Displaying 73,400 miles and offered with an MOT into May 2018 the vendor now grades the engine, gearbox, and Black/Blue interior trim as `excellent', and the bodywork and paintwork as `very good'.
