At Subaru, the phrase "The Fastest WRX STI Ever" refers to more than just top speed or maximum engine output. It implies driving with confidence. The WRX STI can be taken to its "fastest ever" performance by providing the driver with total driving control with confidence. As a result, the 2011 WRX STI recorded 7'55''00 at the Nürburgring racetrack, Subaru's fastest lap time ever, which is 4 seconds faster than the previous fastest time recorded in 2004.

Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive
It is no secret that consumers are interested in societal progress and are
motivated by a sustainable consciousness. It's a movement that would make
the great Nikola Tesla proud. His scientific mind was embedded with
futuristic ideas and electrical engineering inventions inclusive of
robotics, alternative current, light, X-rays, remote control, radio,
lasers, wireless communications and none other than the electric motor with
rotating magnetic fields in 1930. Today we are all very well aware of the
all-electric car company bearing Nikola's surname. Coincidence? I don't
think so. As well, Tesla builds the powertrain for the B-Class Electric
Drive through a strategic partnership alliance with M-B, who in fact also
experimented with electrification in 1906 when the German automaker
announced the world's first hybrid vehicle.

WRX Sti (570 HP, 573 TQ) Tuned by Topspeed
2004 WRX Sti with over 12K in mods. Tuned by Top Speed of Atlanta GA, Dyno run @ 454 HP and 457
TQ. Mods include 850cc injectors, Hi Flow Fuel Pump, Perrin FMIC, methanol
injection, Garrett Tubo (26psi), Perrin Boost controler, full tubo back exahust
(catless), uppipe, downpipe, cold air intake, Perrin blow off valve Cobb
Access Port piggyback ECU and track tuned suspension. This is my third WRX,
I purchased this car with the mods and tune done. I know there is more but
this is all I know. The car ran an 11.2 QM and reaches 60 mph in aprox 3.2
seconds. My 65 year old uncle who has raced cars his whole life and owns
multiple 600+ HP cars one of which is a wheelies Kit car with a blown 454
producing 650 WHP took a ride in this Subie and said after the ride that it
was the fastest car he had ever driven. I am sure he has had a few 10
second cars or even high 9 sec. He said it was the fastest car he had
driven but I doubt it. I would say that it is the fastest 0-100 he had ever
driven. Old dudes have no idea what horse power can do in combination with
AWD. He was blown away. I just got the car last month and have already
raced a new Z06 Vette from a 2nd gear roll and pulled 5 links on him to 145
4-door 2011 Impreza WRX STI - sedan is back!!
Just as Impreza was always like, a 4-door version is back in Japan market
on July 1st, 2010.
A release of 5-door hatchback version in 2007 was quite a surprise although
it resulted in good sales, but many of old Subaru Impreza fans were
disappointed because 4-door was the tradition and image of the Subaru WRC
cars. And finally.. Subaru was kind enough to give us a new option of
4-door Impreza, while maintaining the production of 5-door version.
Ex-WRC champion Tommi Mäkinen was involved in developing this 4-door
Impreza as a test driver. According to Subaru, Tommi marked 7:55 on
Nurburgring, which is 4 seconds faster than 2004 WRX STI.
The rear trunk is relatively smaller than hatchback ver, but the sedan body
of Impreza looks beautiful. Subaru says its 3D-shaped rear wing and longer
rear overhang brings more effective aero dynamics and higher top-speed than
My short test drive on low speed was surprisingly quite comfortable
although its springs/dampers were hardened than the previous model. And
the 43kg torque was an astonishing power experience that made me hold my
breath for a moment!
