Johann at Girodisc in Washington has built one hell of a Legacy GT. I’ve been following this build for months. Johann finally posted some pictures of the final product and it’s really impressive.
The bodywork alone is worth an entire post. Since there aren’t too many exterior pieces available for the Legacy GT, Johann decided to do away with a conventional body kit and design his own. The front bumper is a custom piece based off the GDA Zero/Sports front bumper retrofitted to the car with JDM fog lights.
The wide body fender flares have been lifted from a 1989 Honda Accord and the results are nothing short of perfection. I had no idea the Legacy could look this tough.
For the rear, more custom work. Johann retrofitted the center exhaust section from a 2009 Legacy and added an OEM Limited rear lip. JDM tail lights and aggressive 18×10.5 +38 Volk GTM’s, complete the VIP-inspired look. To achieve the perfect stance, Johann has upgraded the entire suspension with Stance LX coilovers, Cusco swaybars, and Perrin endlinks. The drivetrain has also been lifted from an STi, including Brembo brakes and a 6-speed transmission from a Spec C.
For now the motor remains stock, with the exception of Borla headers and a custom exhaust. Johann has plans to swap in a built motor putting out around 400whp in the near future. The teal-painted manifold is a nice touch.
Johann has shocked some new life into a car that has all but been forgotten in the last few years. The result of this collaboration between Johann and Girodisc is nothing short of amazing.
