Do you like turbocharged, all-wheel drive vehicles as much as I do? If so, then I’ve got just the news for you! Two of the biggest names in automotive performance, Cosworth and Subaru, are teaming up for a one-off edition of the Subaru Impreza WRX-STI and I can’t wait to see the results! By joining forces on this project, the pair is raising the bar for all-wheel drive, high-performance motoring. They will tweak the engine, suspension and body of the Impreza WRX-STI and this has me and everyone at the Ft. Myers Subaru dealer, O’Brien Subaru, very excited!
At this time, very few specific details about this project are unknown. However, since Cosworth has built its reputation as being a legendary English automotive engineering company by specializing in fine tuning engines to increase performance, drivers should expect a tweaked engine with impressive power. In fact, with Cosworth’s adjustments the Impreza’s normal 2.5-liter 305 horsepower engine may be boosted to produce over 500 horsepower!
Aside from the focus on improving performance, Subaru reports that Cosworth engineers adjusted the car’s body in order to offer tighter handling. They also enhanced the Impreza’s styling and the pair goes so far as to promise that the final result will be truly staggering. That might seem like a bold statement but both companies have the reputation to back it up.
More details on the revamped STI should be available closer to its on-sale date in March but it looks like drivers have a lot to look forward to. If you’re in the market for a new car but aren’t into the whole “turbocharged” thing, Ft. Myers Subaru dealer, O’Brien Subaru, still has a plethora of great options for you to choose from! Just the other day, I accompanied my friend there so she could test drive a Ft. Myers Subaru Legacy. We were both very impressed by its fun and spirited drive as well as its many practical amenities. The Legacy offered performance, safety, and efficiency and started at $17,495 so my friend knew she couldn’t go wrong!
Don’t just take my word for it though! Stop in today to test drive any of their great vehicles like a Ft. Myers Subaru Legacy, Outback, Forester, Tribeca, or Impreza. No matter what you’re looking for, you are sure to find your next car at O’Brien Ft. Myers Subaru!
