Video: 2011 Subaru WRX STI sedan laps the Nurburgring in 7:55 |

Subaru made a lot of fans extremely happy when it announced that the 2011 Impreza WRX STI will be offered not only in the new hatchback form, but also in the iconic sedan body style.

In order to really prove the worth of the refreshed model, the Japanese engineers fiddled a bit with some of its accessories, like the turbocharger on the 2.5-liter Boxer engine, but also added some lightweight equipment.

Afterwards, they handed the keys to this slightly better-than-average WRX STI to one of the guys in their parking lot, former WRC Champ Tommi Mäkinen.

The driver took the new 2011 Subaru Impreza WRX STI onto the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife and achieved the best time ever for a Subaru, lapping the circuit in 7:55

Hit the jump to check out the in-car footage from the Nurburgring lap.
