Bangalore, India – In a delightful turn of events for speed enthusiasts, a rare gem has hit the car market – a 2007 Subaru Impreza WRX STI. Known as the “Hawkeye” for its distinctive second facelift, this speedster is not just any car; it’s the only one of its kind in Karnataka. With a hefty 300 bhp under the hood, this Japanese marvel has clocked a mere 48,000 km and is up for grabs at INR 35 lakh.
But hold your horses, or in this case, your engines. The online buzz around this unique find has been nothing short of hilarious. Social media user jaygill06 wittily commented, “Motors going to blow for sure,” sparking a wave of playful banter. 50_mega_ohm chimed in asking, “Does it come with extra head gaskets?” To which mad_._rider humorously replied, “Actually, the dude is selling the car because he blows it every time while trying to clock that 300hp.”
This performance-oriented variant of the Impreza, the WRX STI, is a rare sight in India, making this sale a notable event for car aficionados. Produced from 2000 to 2007 in Japan, the WRX and WRX STI models were available in numerous specifications, including limited edition models. The STI models, in particular, were more performance-focused, receiving yearly updates from Subaru to enhance their cosmetics, equipment levels, and most importantly, performance and handling.
So, if you’re in Bangalore and have a serious craving for a sports sedan with a touch of exclusivity and a dash of humor, this might just be your chance to own a piece of automotive history. Just remember to check those head gaskets!
