I spotted this one in its natural habitat! She is a wild one and I was barely able to snap these photos due to halo surrounding her. The parking lot of SIA. this is one of three from what I understand.

I was going to say I know they had a few colors for the 08+ specB's but never heard of one in that BADASS RED! Nice find

IIRC 08's came in DGM or QSM and 09's came in those + SWP, OBP, & GRP.

Not 100% on that though.

Either way, nice find!

Nice find! One of three?? Any info on this?

It appears to be the new 2014 model they are coming out with.

The car is a very bright red and I have to imagine came equipped with two or three speeding tickets in the glove box.:lol::lol::lol: That car looks fast and will definitely attract attention.

Yeah, it's not the same, but the RRP spec.B is damn near as close to that rare. I believe Subaru did loosely confirm there were about 100 2009 spec.Bs made. Even if you assume even distribution of the colors, rather than RRP probably being the least popular, that's only like 20 total.

i didnt even know the specb came in this color

You are right that is still a rare car. For what its worth I would take the RRP over the Unidentified Red all day. When I bought my OBXT I had no idea there where Unicorns like these out there, I might have ended up in something different.

ShadowImg 12-19-2012 08:35 PM

Yeah, I originally had an OBP 08 2.5GT -- I didn't get a spec.B because I didn't like the silver/gray options.

Ironically, I went all the way to New Jersey to nab my low mileage used OBP 09 spec.B, only to have *3* of them show up for sale in Illinois within a month.

That is not a short drive!:spin:
