A couple of months ago we brought you news of Subaru’s nuclear weapon they were developing with engineering legends Cosworth. Biblical specifications were published from the horse’s mouth and now we can officially show you this incredible armament . People of the world, the Subaru Impreza Cosworth…
Officialy called the Cosworth Impreza STi CS400, this car produces a meaty 395BHP thanks to some engine magic. Baring in mind that this is still a four door hatchback it can achieve a 0-62MPH of just 3.7 seconds, and to put that into perspective a Lamborghini Murcielago LP640 can only just about muster a 0-62 of 3.4! The top speed is electronically limited to 155MPH to prevent the physical event of the driver head exploding.
The cars 2.5 litre turbo engine benefits from new pistons, Cosworth engine bearings, an all-new head gasket, high pressure oil pump, modified turbocharger and waste gate. To ensure people know that you have one of these fabled creatures, as you’ll be traveling so fast they won’t see you, Cosworth have also added a new exhaust system to ensure passers-by are defend. Torque is also boosted to a bowl compressing 398lb ft. Breaks are an obvious modification if you’re going to be traveling super car speeds, and so this Impreza gets new coil springs and larger break discs.
This car is solely for the UK market and only 75 will be manufactured. £49,995 is what this super car humbling peace of kit will set you back, bargain in my mind as it’s cheaper than a Lamborghini or Ferrari but you can take your dog along for the ride in one of these.
