Subaru sti S401 for sale

It is a Subaru Legacy S401 STI.

Sold - New Zealand New not Import

Produced on the BE platform with input from the ‘STI’ performance division, the S401 was released in 2002 featuring a twin sequential turbo 2.0L EJ208 engine producing 289 horsepower and 253 ft.lb of torque, mated to a 6-speed manual gearbox (taken from the Impreza WRX STI). The highlight of this model though, was that it was the last Subaru model to feature the sequential twin turbocharging first introduced in 1993 in the 1st generation of the model. Unfortunately Subaru’s concept never was able to be fully refined (owing to noticeable turbo lag between the transitional periods of both turbochargers at 3,500-4,000 RPM), and the S401 was a ‘sayonara’ to the design as Subaru moved back to single-turbocharged units.

Only 400 were produced, mainly sold within the Japanese market (although 2 made it into Australiasia / New Zealand).

Basically, Subaru decided “Hey, this is the last of the twin turbo Legacies, lets get STI to throw the lot at it and make the ultimate Twin Turbo Legacy”.

What did it get? Well, 6 Speed manual gearbox, front LSD, retuned ECU, hand-built engine, STI exhaust, Intercooler pipes, full STI suspension, big ass Brembo brakes, some lush BBS 18wheels, exclusive front bumper, side skirts and intercooler scoop. It also gets a stunning half leather/Alcantara interior, red stitching, and an STI full dash cluster. There’s a few other bits here and there, but that’s the main parts. This Japanese website lists everything in detail, it’s an amazing site.

It’s a really nice place to be, the seats are very comfortable and the interior is simple and easy to use. The 6 speed gearbox, mostly shared with various other STI and later model Legacies, is lovely to use, direct with short ratios.

The STI suspension is nothing short of amazing. Cruising down the motorway it’s firm, and flat, but sucks up all the bumps like they are nothing. Hit some corners, and it’s flat and just grips and grips.

The S401 was a limited edition, and they were apparently going to make 400 of them, hence the number is ***/400 on the badging. In reality, they never made that target, and there were only approx 290 cars made ever making this 401 a very rare NZ new car.

mine is #233/400

i do have photos and am happy to answer any further questions. This car is extremely genuine and I would like to pass it on to a genuine buyer who would appreciate what it is. I’m open to offers

If your trying to sell anything, I would expect photos and specific product condition as a minimum.

There are many options, such as flickr, trademe or facebook marketplace. 

Also you should move the post to here: http://www.clubsub.org.nz/forum/index.php?/forum/86-sell-vehicles/

You can put EOI - Expression of Interest

Hi! Cool car, and welcome to ClubSub.

 

To prevent people using this site as a kinda budget Trademe, we require that people have a few posts under their belt before the Classifieds section becomes available to them.

 

Also please note that one of our rules is that we don't do "offers". Anything for sale needs to have a price on it. You obviously have a figure in mind, so let's get that out in the open, saves a lot of stuffing around for everyone.

      In lieu of a new Technical board structure being implemented soon, here are the workings for the new FAQ posts to replace all technical stickies, and hopefully most of your searches.
      This is a temporary post because it isn't helping anyone locked away while I'm too busy to finish it.
      Please post additional useful links as a new post for a Mod to add to the list.
      Mods, I've tried to categorise things logically and keep double-ups to a minimum. PM me any questions.
      Cheers,
      kamineko

      I recently imported my dream bh5 in the purple/ blue colour, auto ej206 which I'm fine with, it has 49,000 k"s and upon inspection it has had a centre decat and muffler delete and a back box from zero sports. It's a rev C from 2000 and I'm looking to get a base tune or Remap. I contacted possum bourne here in auckland but they are unable to tune the rev C ecu for some reason? Would anyone be able to point me in a direction of a tuner in auckland? Someone also mentioned on here about project lambda,  I was wondering if anyone has had experience with them and if it's worth it. Thanks guys!
