We know special editions aren't really so special anymore, but usually automakers give a name to their marketing gimmicks. It tends to be more effective that way. But Subaru has apparently decided to do without one as they offer a special edition of the new Outback to British customers. As we reported from the Detroit show floor, the Outback and Legacy were both revised for 2007 with new features and an updated look. This special version comes packed with ???1000 worth of options at no additional charge over the sticker price of the ordinary Outback 2.5 SE on which it's based.

The package included a Momo leather steering wheel with built-in audio controls, an ivory leather interior and rear air-conditioning vents. The special Outback is available in either Diamond Grey Metallic or Dark Green Mica with Urban Grey bodycladding and bumpers.

Something for nothing – you can't beat that.
