Subaru, the Japanese automobile maker has come out with a road-legal and new version of the WRX STI. The company is hopeful of setting a new record in the month of May this year.
The model is being backed by the USA division of Subaru. The WRX STI is the all new race car that is legal on the road. This Japanese car manufacturer may once again reignite its much talked-about partnership with Prodrive, a Britain-based company that used to manufacture the WRC cars from Subaru.
It has been declared that Mark Higgins, the famous British rally driver and the present record-holder will drive the WRX STI Time Attack. It was in 2014 when Higgins had an incredible average of 187 km per hour and set the best time in a WRX STI of about 19 minutes and 25 seconds.
Though the roads were narrow, had big jumps with different types of walls, rocks and trees to cross as well as sheep and lamp posts to avoid, he was successful in topping 258 km per hour in his 2.5 liters STI.
Subaru declared that very little modifications were made to its 2014 model apart from some new springs, internal fire extinguisher, roll cage, Dunlop Derezza tires, and dampers. The all-new STI is truly a delight for all those enthusiasts who love fast sports cars.
Subaru claims that the new version is also road legal. The WRX STI is highly-tuned and is reportedly much more powerful compared to its street version.
