Once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase a piece of rally and automotive history.

This unrestored GC8 Group A rally car is one of only 63 commissioned by Prodrive and in untouched condition from when it was retired in 1996 into long term storage.

Chassis 94.006 livery is currently in it’s last Prodrive race of Colin McRae L555BAT at Corsica #7 or alternatively Carlos Sainz at Monte Carlo #2 L555REP. (555 tobacco livery included)

Key Points:
- Commissioned in December 93 as the first 555 1994 season car for Carlos Sainz to start with Subaru and first to wear the famous L555REP number plates to celebrate the Repsol sponsorship with Subaru and Carlos
- Carlos Sainz took podium 3rd in 94.006 at Monte Carlo starting from 8th position on stage 1 and familiarising the car in the treacherous snow and ice of the French alps. 1st placed in stages 15,17 and 20 at 81 km/h and 2nd place on stages 5,6 and 16 at 95km/h
- Continuous documented ownership from the 3 owners in 1993, 1995 and 2013
- Authenticated original by ICAARS and Possum Bourne Motor Sport(PBMS), event history from Prodrive and PBMS
- Original Prodrive engine (94 PD 01) rebuilt by Prodrive prior to Corsica still bearing Prodrive witness marks/unopened crank cases confirmed by PBMS
- DNF in early stages of Corsica 1994 and the two Indonesian Rallies 1995/1996 have ensured low mileage and the incredible originality in early retirement.
- Original active front diff/type 2 Prodrive 6 speed gearbox as allocated to the top 1994 drivers.
- Untouched Undercarriage, engine, suspension, wheels, tyres etc all carry Prodrive markings and 93/94 date codes
- Currently a static display with all patina or future mechanical/ECU reinstatement with a sympathetic approach to maintaining the patina/originality of such a rare vehicle.
