Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 to Attack Cholmondeley Pageant of Power
We are talking about a 400 hp, Cosworth-tuned, rally-bread (yes, the legacy is still there), which will be manhandled by former British Rally Champion Mark Higgins, who recently managed to set the production road car lap record for the Isle of Man TT circuit using a Subaru WRX STI.
“In addition to seeing the 2.5-litre Boxer-engined Cosworth take on the challenging sprint course, there will also be a display of two Cosworth Impreza STI CS400s within the paddock where show-goers will be able to see the cars up close, and appreciate some of its detailing like the lightweight Pro-Race 18-inch alloy wheels, AP Racing six-pot brake callipers and Cosworth-branded interior,” a company statement reads.
The extreme Scooby will show off in front of 50,000 visitors, as it (driven by Mark Higgins, of course) will try to beat the 62.68 second lap record of the technical track situated at the event - the record was set by a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera LP570-4.
“The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power is a perfect platform for us to showcase this collaborative effort from two of the big names in automotive performance – Subaru and Cosworth. The circuit record will be tough to match, but we’re confident that the CS400 will take the fight to the supercar elite,” said Kenyon Neads, Marketing Director of Subaru UK.
