Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version IV

White JDM 1997 Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version IV

It’s the supercar for real driving on real roads because the really high power can really be put to the road via All-Wheel Drive. Accelerate!!

Obviously, we’re really impressed with the Impreza WRX STi Version IV. In fact, it’s almost too good to be true. For a fraction of the price of a supercar, it offers genuine supercar handling and performance including around 300 unofficial horsepower and zero-to-sixty acceleration in 4.6 seconds that leaves even contemporary BMWs behind. Yet the Impreza WRX STi Version IV is comfortable and practical enough for everyday driving — a fantastic example of the amazing used vehicles available in Japan.

While we highly recommend the Subaru Impreza WRX STi Version IV, any high-performance turbocharged WRX STi model you choose from 1994 to 2000 will be an absolute blast to own. You can take your Impreza WRX STi to the track on weekends and use it for commuting on weekdays. It’s even comfortable and quiet enough for long trips with the family — unlike some other high-performance cars we know.

All JDM WRX STi models grip the road like glue, making them super fun to drive on twisting, turning roads. A good excuse to take the long way home. They also deliver an invigorating boxer growl that puts a smile on your face when you put the pedal to the medal. What could be better than that?

Here’s a JDM 1997 Subaru Impreza WRX Type R we exported abroad. This stripped-down, high-performance 2-door coupe had to be specially ordered in the Japanese market when purchased brand new and offers a 10 kilogram weight advantage over the heavier 4-door WRX Type RA sedan as well as higher body rigidity — which explains why coupes became the preferred body type for rally competition.

When you’re ready for a JDM Subaru Impreza WRX in great condition at the best possible price, contact Japan Car Direct. We can help you source the model of your dreams and import it to your nearest port without delay.
