Subaru to showcase new Impreza

Subaru has announced that it will be showcasing its limited-edition Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 this summer.

The 400 horsepower, Cosworth-tuned car will feature at the Cholmondeley Pageant of Power alongside a range of other high-performance cars.

Former British Rally Champion Mark Higgins will pilot the vehicle after he recently set the production road car lap record in a Subaru.

The Impreza will be up against supercars including an Ariel Atom V8, Lamborghini LP570-4 Performante, McLaren MP4-12C and a Noble M600 on the two-mile track.

Marketing director of Subaru UK, Kenyon Neads, said: "The Cholmondeley Pageant of Power is a perfect platform for us to showcase this collaborative effort from two of the big names in automotive performance - Subaru and Cosworth.

"The circuit record will be tough to match, but we're confident that the CS400 will take the fight to the supercar elite."
