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

You didn't get the inside joke. Also, this Rex seems to be putting out close to 600 bhp. I doubt a C6 could match up to it, track or dragstrip. I'm talking with reference to THIS PARTICULAR machine.

Last I heard, the LP640 was quicker to 60 mph than the Enzo. Of course, I may be wrong. But then again, Porsche does supply AWD with its 911 Turbo, and I don't think they're for poor drivers. Neither is WRC.

Yes, you can make a Civic run rings around an STI, given enough money. Given enough money, I can make a truck beat an F1 car on a dragstrip. The point is, Imprezas and Evos have proven race/rally pedigree, which Civics etc do not.

even if i was given a fully tweaked sti and a stock c6 i would go for the c6 but the main reason why sti and evo are amazing cars are because the were built for wrc but are still good even on the road by the way viper the lp640 is faster than the enzo from 0-60 mph the lp640 does it in 3.3 where as the enzo does it in 3.65 sec but the fastest among stock cars is the saleen s7 tt
thats why the car is eating other cars in le-mans but my favorite vette's of all time are the 81 stingray and the Lingenfelter corvette tt has 990 nm torque love to have one but only 25 are made and cost $86,995 and can eat the enzo which is 10 times its cost.

hey dont get me wrong i aint a red neck and i respect Japanese tuner but in no way the can they be compared to a muscle car your modded car might be a good chance against a muscle say a c5 or c6(may be) but compared to the big guys say saleen,shelby gt500,c6,viper thats where the tuner power comes to a end.(no offense meant)by the way is it 600 bhp as other members mentioned.

Default Pic and Video!

Spotted the WRX yesterday. Took a small video and a pic. Have attached them below.

The car is in a black shade. Take a look into the interiors and you'll notice that it is swamped by a number of gauges on the dashboard and a huge tachometer at the drivers side.

However, there is a piece of bad news. The owner of the car was overheard mentioning that the car was giving problems.

Enough guys , C6 or the WRX .. its the buyers choice. Also these two are not comparable by any chance. They are different breed of cars and have their own customer targets.
satans_enemy:::: more details on yr beast that all of us wanna know:
1. Price , import details.
2. Stock spec ( 293 hp)
3 Aftermarket tuning details.
4. How was the entire process like from deciding to buying one and how it went through the entire mod.
5. Reason for choosing it above the Evo.

Guys, this thread is about one particular car which has finally made it's appearance in Mumbai. Lets leave personal preferences out of this thread and appreciate the car for what it is, which is an awesome piece of machinery!

No more comparisons on this thread!

And we all await some good, high resolution pics of this monster!

i saw n sat in the subaru the day it arrived out here but that was for a very short distance. the next day was a totally diffrent story. my dear friend who happens to own this beast made me almost swallow my tongue about 50 times when he floored this monster.

Got a whole lot o pix and videos of the interior,exterior and a couple of other videos of this beast being ripped. will upload them in a couple o days

Note from mod - Please avoid slang/sms/chat language on TBHP.

And if any1 wants to see the subaru ... just come to the 'burbs and if you hear the wildest note that you havnt heard in any car ... itll be the subaru ....

Note: Post has been edited of anti-vette content, to emphasise, "QUIT the rivalry," it's not fun anymore.

Cool Horse Power vs. Horse Power

Not entirely stupid !! It's not like all can afford Gallardo's to burn rubber.
Modding only opens up the horizon for thousands of us, who otherwise would only stand by and awe ! Hell if you ask me,..I'd say modding has taken the game out to the boys in the street !! So Its Horse power vs. Horse power, in an even playing field,..does it matter if the horse power came factory fitted,..or was unleasehd by the owner with pride.
And thats always a good thing. What say brothers !!
