Jeremy Clarkson from Top Gear said that the Subaru Impreza WRX STI looks like a smashed buttock, I think it looks pretty cool, myself.

@VW Veyron SS - yea, your buying a subaru, don't buy it for straight line speed.

A mustang GT/camaro SS cost less than this and that's why I'm looking at buying those. That being said, for the windy canyon road a subaru would def. be awesome.

Waste of money for drag racing at this price. A 2002 Camaro Z28 or 2002 Trans Am WS6 will edge it out in the 1/4 mile and SMASH it in the standing mile and top speed.
If you take cars to a race track then it's a different story though.

A lot of specialists state that business loans aid a lot of people to live their own way, just because they can feel free to buy necessary things. Furthermore, some banks present short term loan for all people.

I today have ran my 2006 STi with a VBOX GPS data logger. I ran 0-100km/h on RE070 stock tyres stock everything in 5.4 seconds with a launch at 4500 revs. Im sure that if I had done 2-3 more launches at 5000+ RPM I could reach a flat 5 second or less time for 0-100km/h...

How can this be faster than a Porsche 997 GT2 but slower than a Renault Megane Sport at Bruntingthorp?

Watch the Top Gear episode again. The STi beat the EVO X, but they liked the EVO much better.

Theres a mistake there

bought one 4 month ago. Blow-off valve, stage II, new exhaust System (thrust). accelerating is far behind that 4,4 (0-100) more than 5,5s. From 1st gear to 2nd it is ver slow and gives strange noises, and cannot make the 100km/h in second gear, so you have to put the 3rd... BUT not ugly, very nice, and I love it. Good car for 40k USD.

Which issue/month of Best motoring featured the 2.5L WRX STI in tsukuba? Was it a test vehicle? As far as i know, the 2.5L are only for export markets.

Thank you. I only want to share
the test result because many people
are interest of this performance
data like me. I like this site and
I´m glad to help sometime.

Thanks again.

Ulven source and data are correct ... I have deleted that pointless blaming each other.

Ulven  9y  

Performance data from Auto motor und sport: 0-100 km/h 5,6 sec.
0-200 km/h 24,6 sec.


User avatar

Georg  9y  

we have here 0-100km/h not 0-60mph


User avatar

Subpra  9y  

Your 0-60 is off for the 08 STI. Search the Internet. Most reviews get mid to high 4's.

sportauto clocked disapointing 6.0s 0-100km/h but nearly reach the same 0-100mph/160km/h time... like the Evo X the WRX sTI fights with increased weight at the Hockenheimshorttrack..


User avatar

maestro  10y  

be realistic. 0-100km can't be under five seconds with 194 hp/tone. even in a awd like this.

Are there any 0-100km/h tests? Sportscars made a short test with the WRX STI ..the press car with the licens plate "FB-PR 314" missed factory claim 0-100km/h by whooping 0.6s .. sportscars was not able to get the car 0-100km/h in under 5.8s something they were realy disapointed about.
