It seems like we get pretty water downed versions of the STi while other parts of the world cool versions like the Cosworth STi. This Cosworth STi is pretty much a super car battler with a humble exterior. To me, it’s a combo made in heaven!

It’s subdued exterior will fool anyone as it actually has a good amount of performance to back its emblem. The power comes out to a boastful 395hp and a lofty 398ft/lbs and that’s all from ‘the factory’. The motor has been give a ‘do over’ with a full build including pistons, rods, upgraded turbo, exhaust, and a ECU reflash. For any performance junkie that is reading this, you already have in your head “Oh, there’s so much more power to get out of the motor!!!”. I’ve seen STi’s get close to 450whp with similar upgrades so these cars are basically begging for more power.

Given that the Cosworth STi also gets its handling from a set of Eibach Springs and Bilstein dampers, it’s a perfect storm.

The exterior is upgraded with mesh inserts on the front bumper, widen track by 12mm, rear spoiler and some nice 18 inch wheels. The kicker is the awesome AP Racing / Cosworth big brake system! These are limited to only 75 units and only sold in the UK. So, given the fact that most of our readers are from North America, it will be a truly rare sight to see these in person.

So what’s the tab on something like this? Well, with great power comes great… amount of income that you will need because it’s well over $70,000.00. As some of you may groan there are those who will love this Subaru so much that they will shell that out and to me, those are the die hards. We will all sit back and watch the Brits get all the fun so we hope that Cosworth may have some plans in the near future.
