And Daniel thought repairing his WRX was expensive!
A million dollar price was paid for a Subaru rally car last month. The car, driven by Subaru legend Richard Burns to victory at the 2000 Rally GB, was sold “as-raced” and never restored or modified.
- A completely original WRC car.
- Chassis #11 was acquired directly from the finish line of the 2000 Rally GB, preserving its originality
- Car was driven to victory by the late, great Richard Burns.
- In a private collection for years, the car has only been used for demonstration events .
The value comes from the originality of the vehicle, which is exactly as it was when raced at the turn of the century. Immediately after the race, the Subaru was sold, preserving it as a near-perfect time capsule. However, 300 HP, 2.0 L engine was given a replacement ECU to allowed the car to run on unleaded gasoline.
The car was sold via auction house Collecting Cars for a staggering $1,041,812 Canadian dollars.
