Subaru Impreza WRC from 1997, driven by the legendary rally driver Colin McRae was recently sold at auction for €265,000 ($294,000). Legendary car Subaru Impreza WRC97, with which Colin McRae had preparing for FIA World Rally Championship, recently went up for auction. In fact, it is about test car, chassis number 001, which has never performed in an official competition.
Although it has never been on a real podium test car Colin McRae, the first Briton to win WRC Rally Championship, was sold at auction for £230,625 pounds, which is about €265,000.
Taking into account that some Ferraris these days sell for a whopping $35 million on similar auctions, Colin’s legendary Subaru looks as a gift.
Sure, €265,000 euros isn’t a small sum of money, but for anyone who has a passion for historic cars and has a surplus of money, this was a great opportunity.
