Subaru’s Cosworth Impreza to take on the world’s best supercars
If Goodwood’s festival of Speed didn’t do it for you then perhaps you’d like to head over to Cholmondeley for the Pageant of Power. Billed as “The UK’s biggest celebration of power and speed” all the world’s supercars will be there, including Subaru’s limited edition Cosworth Impreza STI CS400.
The ‘400’ stands for 400bhp (294kW) but this special edition Subaru STI is tuned by Cosworth and is an out and out supercar slayer. The All-wheel-drive Impreza will take on many of the worlds fastest cars including such ferocious machinery as the Ariel Atom V8, Noble M600, McLaren MP4-12C and Lamborghini LP570-4 Performante, to name just a sample of the cars that will attend the pageant.
The 1.2-mile course record of 62.68 seconds was set last year by a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4 so the 2.5-litre Boxer engined Cosworth will need to pull out all stops if it wants a shot at the title.
If you’re a motoring enthusiast in the UK without the required funds for a supercar purchase, no problem, just get down to your local Subaru dealer with £49,995 and pick one up.
