2007 Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT Spec.B

AFTER ITS SUCCESSFUL RUN IN 2006, THE LEGACY 2.5 GT SPEC.B JUST GETS BETTER FOR 2007 WITH ENHANCED PERFORMANCE AND CONVENIENCE FEATURES.

 

The limited-edition 2006 Legacy 2.5 GT spec.B has left a positive imprint on automotive journalists and enthusiasts since its introduction in the fall of 2005. The individually numbered cars were subtly unique, with few external cues to differentiate them from standard GT models. Instead, their handling and interior features set them apart.

 

That changes for 2007. The spec.B has a more distinctive exterior, and its equipment has a higher level of sophistication. Here’s what we know at press time.

 

WHAT REMAINS THE SAME

 

Much of what made the Legacy 2.5 GT spec.B such an outstanding car remains. Exterior features carried over from last year include the aerodynamic pieces with chrome trim and 215/45 R18 89Y tires mounted on 10-spoke, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

 

Inside, the 2007 model retains last year’s standard touch-screen GPS navigation system; three-spoke, leather-wrapped MOMO® steering wheel with integrated audio controls; and aluminum-alloy pedal covers and footrest.

 

Carryover mechanical features include the Bilstein® Sport Suspension, with inverted front struts and aluminum-alloy front control arms, rear arms and upper links. Power is from a 2.5-liter DOHC aluminum-alloy Subaru Boxer four-cylinder engine with Active Valve Control. It has an intercooled, air-to-air turbocharger with a maximum boost of 13.5 psi, and it produces 243 hp @ 6,000 rpm and 241 lb-ft of torque @ 3,600 rpm. 

 


WHAT CHANGES

 

Start with the exterior, where the spec.B finish is Diamond Gray Metallic. Inside, the color palette has changed to charcoal and dark blue, with exclusive Dusk Blue Alcantara®* and Charcoal Black leather-trimmed upholstery. That theme continues on the floor mats, which are Charcoal with Dusk Blue piping.

 

The car’s manual transmission has another forward gear – a six-speed replaces the five-speed from last year. This is the first time a six-speed is available in a Subaru other than in the WRX STI.
