    Nürburgring Challenge: 2010 Subaru WRX STI (by Tommi Mäkinen)

    SUBARU WRX STI Nürburgring Challenge 2010: In-Car Movie...

    8 June 2010 — The prototype WRX STI has been timed in a test drive around the Nürburgring. Major improvements have been made to the chassis performance, including the body itself as well as its aerodynamics. The new mode shaved more than 4 seconds of the 2004 time, clocking in at 7:55; the fastest lap time ever recorded for the WRX STI.

    Driver: Tommi Mäkinen

    Subaru Impreza sets Nurburgring record...

    The World's quickest saloon is the Subaru Impreza WRX STI, judging by its Nurburgring lap time...

    The Subaru Impreza WRX STI – the quickest saloon in the world. That’s the claim, after the four-door version of the new-school Impreza set a new record at the Nurburgring.

    A mightily impressive claimed 7min55sec lap-time around the Ring’s Nordschleife (North Loop) puts the STI ahead of the previous saloon record holder, the Cadillac CTS-V. The American boasts a 6.2-litre V8 engine over three times the size of the Japanese-spec Subaru’s 2-litre flat-four, but transfers its 556bhp to the track via its rear wheels only. The Impreza is all-wheel drive.

    The STI was piloted by four-time World Rally Champion and former Mitsubishi and Subaru WRC driver Tommi Makinen. The car deviates slightly from standard, with the the larger turbocharger and six-pot brake calipers from the Impreza R205 edition and aluminium bonnet from the STI Spec C, plus the usual safety necessities for track work.
