figures for the hot hatch segment.
Introducing, the Cosworth Impreza STi CS400. This beast of a car is

increased maximum power to 295kW and pushed torque figures to
540Nm. The improved power means the Cosworth Impreza STi

at a limited 250km/h.

spoiler. Wheels are a set of new 18-inch alloys. The Cosworth Impreza
