Default Ultimate Hottest hatch? Subaru Impreza STI Cosworth 400 hp

http://carscoop.blogspot.com/2010/03...rth-cs400.html

Subaru has finally released initial details as well as a set of teaser photos of its highly anticipated collaboration with famed engine-builder Cosworth. The special edition model is called the Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 and it will go on sale in the UK (or Europe, Subaru didn't clarify) this June in a limited run of just 75 examples.
The Japanese automaker said that Cosworth has fine-tuned the standard Impreza WRX STI's 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, boosting output from 300HP at 6,000 rpm to 400HP at 5,750 rpm.
The result is a supercar-like 0 to 100km/h (62mp) sprint time of just 3.7 seconds. That's compared to the stock Impreza WRX STI's time of 5.2 seconds.
Engine-mods aside, Subaru reported that the Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 will feature a bespoke brake package with six-pot callipers and 355mm discs at the front developed in partnership with AP Racing, an upgraded suspension and a new sport exhaust system.
The automaker added that the Cosworth edition of the Impreza STI also benefits from bespoke interior and exterior styling treats, without getting into any more details.
Subaru said that it will release full technical specs, photos and information on pricing closer to the car's on-sale date.

Love it and the idea - Lot so of bold claims to be proved.

0-62mph in 3.7 puts it in Ferrari 599 territory. Autocar predict the car would cost around 40,000.

Its just that the current generation impreza looks are a bit toned down.Wish they still had the previous generation one,with the electric blue paint job and gold wheels.
