For the average car buyer, a modified WRX STi is something to be avoided. A slammed and straight piped Subaru might look cool…but who knows what the vehicle has endured in its lifetime.
Case in point; Ken Block’s 2002 WRX has not only competed in rallies, but even jumped a world record 171 feet. The 2002 Impreza has been upgraded with stylish “hawkeye” headlights from ’05 to ’07 Subarus. You could say the car has been ‘garage kept’ as Ken Block does have a climate-controlled race shop in Utah. Estimates are the car will fetch north of USD $200,000 with a portion of proceeds going to the Make-A-Wish foundation.
Anyone in the market for a slightly used Subaru should consider this car. Despite the fact that a modified car will usually bring a lower price than a factory original…but this one is special.
