Vatanen and Burns driven Subaru rally car for auction

Published 07 February 2018

A 1993 Subaru Legacy RS Group A rally car driven by Ari Vatanen and Richard Burns is going under the hammer at Silverstone Auctions’ Race Retro Competition Car Sale. The ex-Prodive model is expected to fetch between £120,000 and £140,000 when it goes under the hammer at Stoneleigh Park, Warwickshire, on Friday, 23 February.

Finished in the striking blue and gold livery, K555BAT was driven by Vatanen in the 1993 Acropolis rally while Burns took it to second-place in Italy. Acquired by the Richard Burns Collection in 2008, it has been restored by Subaru rally specialists Autosportif Engineering and is now offered for sale.

The process was overseen by ex-Prodrive guru Ian Richardson, whose specialist knowledge and original technical drawings meant that a brand new, authentic Prodrive-spec Legacy shell was made. However, it retains many of its original mechanical components, its correct chassis ID plate and evocative numberplate. It also boasts the correct ‘works’ engine, six-speed gearbox and suspension set-up.
