New Look 2011 WRX & STI Bows; Cosworth Limited Edition Not Far Behind
Feel the full rally fury at the controls of the all-new 2011 Subaru WRX and WRX STI. Designers have returned these tasty Impreza models back to their gravel gobbling glory with a wide body design and the return of a four-door sedan version of the STI. Of course along with the fatter fenders, the 2011 WRX flexes new bumper and grille treatments, a big rear wing and improved suspensions. As expected the STI has the most serious updates, namely a 5mm drop in ride height, new aluminum lower front control arms and a change to pillow-ball type bushings outback. There are no power upgrades for 2011, but wait until you see the Cosworth Impreza STI CS400. We are getting a lot of buzz about a new special-edition WRX from Cosworth. The bottom lines are 400 horsepower, 0-to-60mph sprint in just 3.7 seconds, 14-inch rotors, six-piston calipers and 75 units. Production is slated to begin in June and distribution will likely be limited to Europe. - EG
