The result of one of the most eagerly anticipated automotive collaborations in recent times is heading towards Subaru dealers.
The Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 officially goes on sale in June.
Subaru has confirmed the car will produce 400PS (395bhp) at 5,750rpm, sufficient to dispatch the 0-62mph sprint in just 3.7 seconds (compared to 300PS / 296bhp at 6,000rpm,and 5.2 seconds for the standard Impreza WRX STI).
This ensures the Cosworth-tuned car will be one of the fastest accelerating all-wheel-drive hatchbacks ever.
The Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 will also feature a bespoke brake package – with six-pot callipers and 355mm discs at the front – developed in partnership with AP Racing.
A wide range of further upgrades have been made to the suspension, exhaust and to the donor Impreza’s exterior and interior styling.
A limited edition run of 75 Cosworth Impreza STI CS400s will be produced.
Full details of pricing and technical specification will be announced closer to the on-sale date.
