In standard form, the 2015 Subaru WRX STI is a machine that will deal with the quarter mile sprint in the 13s range. Of course, we have the aftermarket world to show us that time can go down dramatically and we’re here to take you deeper into this story.
We’ll get straight to the point - the STI you see in the clip below can currently pride itself with the title of being the quickest in the world. How do we know that?

Simple, this STI has visited a drag strip over the past weekend, with the vehicle managing to come up with an impressive time. The Subaru managed to pull a 9.12s pass at 152.33 mph (that's 245 km/h for all you reading this across the pond).

The engine compartment work has pushed the output to around 1,000 HP. This was possible with the help of an AMS Subaru STI/WRX 950R turbo kit, which received some extra work. For the fun of it, Prime Motoring, the tuner that built the car, renamed the kit the 1000x now that they’ve reached the output figure mentioned above.

As you can imagine, such an output requires a ton of supporting mods, so this Scooby deserves our full attention. However, don’t imagine the owner has decided to stop here. Oh no. This guy wants to take the car into the 8s range while racing on 17-inch drag radials, so expect to hear more about this car in the future.

The best part about it? The Scooby is streetable

This is far from being the kind of stripped-out racer. Instead, we are dealing with a full-weight car that can play the street game all day long. Then again, when you love your ride so much, wishing to also drive it on the street is only natural.
