We have here a few detail shots of a car that packs “supercar humbling pace” and will “offer performance-car fans the thrill of a lifetime”. The car in question is the Cosworth Impreza STI CS400, which will go on sale in June in the UK.
All we know now is that this joint-effort by Subaru and Cosworth will boast 395 bhp at 5,750 rpm, sufficient to dispatch the 0-100 km/h sprint in just 3.7 seconds. If you need a barometer, the Audi R8 V10 is slower than this mad Scooby by 0.2 seconds, so supercar humbling pace is no empty boast. The standard UK-spec Impreza WRX STI does 296 bhp at 6,000rpm and complets the century sprint in 5.2 seconds, so we’re looking at a big jump in performance here.
Going faster means stopping harder, and Subaru reveals that the Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 will feature a bespoke AP Racing brake package with six-pot callipers and huge 355 mm discs at the front. A wide range of further upgrades have been made to the suspension, exhaust and to the donor Impreza’s exterior and interior styling. Only 75 units of the Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 will be produced. Prices and further technical details will be announced closer to the launch date so stay tuned.
