Cosworth and Subaru have teamed up again to bring a tuned version of the Impreza STi to the Geneva Motor Show next month.  The two companies do not plan a lengthy collaboration on multiple projects as the Cosworth/Subaru STi is described as a "one-off" project.

Subaru distributed a teaser image to promote the release, which shows a taillight cluster with different tints.  In an accompanying press release, the companies say, "the result promises to be truly staggering."  The rumor mill is suggesting that the 2.5-liter 305 hp (227 kW) engine will be boosted to produce over 500 hp (373 kW).  Aside from their focus on improving performance, engineers worked to offer tighter handling while adjusting the car's body.

The two companies will release full specs about the Cosworth-modified Subaru Impreza STi closer to or at Geneva.


Two of the biggest names in automotive performance have come together to work on a special one-off project, and the result promises to be truly staggering. Subaru UK and Cosworth have enhanced the performance, handling and styling of the acclaimed Impreza STI, creating a car that will raise the bar for all-wheel-drive, high-performance motoring.

Detailed information about performance, specification and pricing will be made available closer to the vehicle's March on-sale date.

There is a guy in my city that has an 07 STI with 550whp. The thing is retarded. With racing tires it gets under 3 sec 0-60.

My buddy's 08 STI is pushing around that when he runs ethanol. The thing is pure insanity, but I have to say STI's with that kind of power aren't that uncommon.

500bhp in a hatch? Jizz'd in my pants! If it has short gear ratios, 0-60mph in the mid 3's should be no hassle.
