A rare opportunity to own a winning Group A WRC car

For sale here is Richard Burns’ winning car from the Great Britain round of the 2000 WRC Championship.

Burns’ Subaru Impreza, Prodrive W25 SRT Chassis #11, was purchased almost immediately directly off the finishing line from ProDrive, still covered in Welsh mud.

On offer from British firm Duncan Hamilton & Co, the car is claimed to be "the most original WRC car in the world".

SUBARU IMPREZA WRX REVIEW

It’s a hard claim to validate, but looking at Burns’ Nokia mobile phone which still resides in its in-cabin dock, energy bar wrappers in the door pocket, and hand-written pace notes – yeah, we’re inclined to believe them!

In the 2000 WRC Championship, the car also competed in the Rallye de France finishing 4th, as well as the Rallye d’Italia  where it suffered a mechanical DNF.

Burns' car is a significant piece of WRC history, and an icon of the Group A Rally era. The car is in beautiful running condition and price is listed as POA.

Many hold the Group A rally era in extremely high regard, especially for those too young to witness the hallowed Group B era. Cars were also far more closely-akin to their road-going siblings, and birthed a number of iconic rare road cars for the era, such as the Subaru Impreza 22B.
