2005 subaru impreza rs pro/vtd???

Does anyone know what an RS Pro is? I searched on Carfax and it came up with this. I am looking at a WRX for sale, but the Carfax report says 2005 SUBARU IMPREZA RS PRO/VTD?

Does that mean it is an RS with a WRX engine?

Confused...

Thoughts? Anyone?

Having owned an 05 Manual RS Sport, the PRO part is for "sport package" which includes the same suspension as the wrx and interior/exterior trim and bits.

The VTD (Variable Torque Distribution) came on the auto models only.

took a look at it in person. looked like a wrx, like interior and pedals because its a RS PRO which is a WRX without the engine.

apparantly the guy didnt know it wasnt a WRX... since thats what the owner told him before him :/

i didnt want to spend $35 on carfax but i did the free preview and low and behold, the VIN was clearly not a "WRX" when in fact a "RS PRO"
