Cool Limited edition Jap import

I have just brought a jap import wrx and it appears to be a limited edition 1996 car. It has a badge celebrating the 1996 WRC winning car and is listed as 137 out of 1000 built. Does anyone know more about these cars. I have some info to indicate the spec was STI but it doesn't have any STI badges.

Either way it appears to be very quick and as a new first time owner it is nice to get hold of a car with low milage and has not been messed around with.

Any history would be appreciated

Smile Limited edition

Guess I better post some pics tomorrow.

Car will be brit registered this week and then watch out it'll be on the road.

Having just upgraded from a gen 4 Honda prelude I am looking forward to the extra horses.

Have a look for the Applied Model/Engine Code on your VIN plate.
