hey 1day .. this comparison is still ok as compared to what else we have on TBHP..
guess what ..there are people comparing opel corsas to corvettes, ferraris, evos and subarus to prove they having tuning potential...

Spotted the Black Impreza today filling up coolant (I guess) at Versova Link Road. The car definitely sounds like the performance it claims. Also, there was a variety of meters on the dash and a huge tacho at the drivers side.

Well then can you suggest a car in that price bracket which can match the STI/EVO's performance?

I would love to see a 'Vette C6 doing a 10 second quarter-mile and posting the kind of lap times that an AWD Rex can do.

Unless of course, the 'Vette is oil cooled and has shot-peened pistons etc...

even if RHD were available, the C6 would be 65+ on road India.

Are you serious dude...

Oh well education is needed if you think STI is anything near a finesse of a sports car...

C6 would probably be more expensive to begin with about 50-60% more but its more than twice the car STI is..

anyhow I might sound like someone who owned a C6 but i spoke about corvettes like this before i was in the market for it..

BTW viper give me a civic, i would make it run cirlces around an STI if thats what you mean, but i have eaten many STIs alive on road and I am sure i would do the same on the track..AWD is for poor drivers, thats why you dont see AWD in an Enzo or CGT..it surely adds safety but looses a lot in the bargain..

Well if i have my way you will see one in inda, until C7 comes before i do which will be a RHD/LHD version as per rumors

Even if I own a ferrari/lambo i doubt i will ever let go of an ownership of a Vette, considering what a epic car it is..especially the Z06..
