395 HP Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth is the new ultimate hot hatch


Subaru has just added more fuel onto the hot hatch fire, as it has just unveiled, alongside performance company Cosworth, the Impreza STI CS400 model.

Using the same 2.5-liter turbocharged engine, but with more performance parts than you can shake a stick at, this new Impreza is capable of a whopping 395 HP and 398 lb-ft of torque. 0 to 62 mph in achieved in a supercar-like 3.7 seconds while the top speed is limited to 155 mph.

The Subaru Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 stands out from all the other models with a redesigned front bumper, new foglights, mesh grille,revised front spoiler and a set of wider 18-inch wheels. In terms of handling, it received a new chassis, resulted from a partnership between Cosworth and Eibach, lower suspension springs and larger front brakes, courtesy of AP Racing.


On the inside you’ll find a piano black center console and a pair of bucket racing Recaro seats. You’ll be able to choose from three colors if this hot hatch got you interested, silver, dark gray and red.

Only 75 cars will be made, sadly intended for UK use, with right hand drive. Even if you considering popping over the Atlantic for such a powerful model, the price starts at £49,995 (around $71,600).
