SUBARU Impreza STI Cosworth CS400 (2011)

The new Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth CS400 is the result of one of the most eagerly anticipated automotive collaborations in recent times. The first genuine Cosworth-developedroad car since 1996, the latest limited edition Impreza offers performance-car fans the thrill of a lifetime combined with exclusivity - production will be restricted to 75 cars.

The Cosworth-tuned, turbocharged vehicle is one of the world's most accelerative hatchbacks. The renowned 2.5-litre turbocharged 'Boxer' engine is transformed to produce 33 per cent more power, drawing heavily on Cosworth's extensive Formula 1 experience. The engine, which drives all four wheels via a six-speed manual gearbox, boasts an impressive 400 ps and the new model reaches 62 mph in just 3.7 seconds, going on to cover a quarter mile in 12.75 seconds at a terminal speed of 107 mph. Top speed is limited to 155mph.
The Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth CS400 features an extensive range of Cosworth-engineered components in the engine, turbo system, exhaust, suspension, brakes and wheels, plus subtle improvements to the exterior and interior styling to create a truly distinctive high performance car with everyday hatchback practicality.

Marketed exclusively in the UK in right-hand drive form, the Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth CS400 is available in a choice of three exterior colours (Spark Silver, Dark Grey andSan Remo Red), and is priced from £49,995 on-the-road.
