The 2015 Subaru WRX STI retains the same engine as the previous generation STI, which is a 2.5-liter EJ257 with dual AVCS however with modifications to the ECU which have increased fuel economy slightly, and has given a 6 kW boost in power to 227 kW (310 HP). Torque however has dropped from 407Nm to 394Nm @ 4000 RPM and Top speed is now 160 mph or 258 km/h.
There are also reports that along with the ECU changes, the rev limit was raised to 7100 rpm to support the power increase at the upper rev range to support a stronger top end. It also retains a hydraulic power steering system as opposed to the WRX's new electric-assisted rack. The steering rack was changed to a quicker 13:1 ratio, as used in the Japan delivered vehicles, as opposed to the 15:1 ratio of the previous models. Also, the 2.0-liter EJ207 that is standard for Japanese STI's has been retained specifically for the Japanese market in the new 2015 WRX STI.
Three-time British Rally champion Mark Higgins blew his own Manx TT course lap record out of the water this week with an average speed of 128.730mph in a Prodrive-built Subaru.
This is the third year Higgins has attempted the record. In 2011 he beat his hero Tony Pond's best time for the 37.73-mile lap by some margin; driving a Rover 827 Vitesse, Pond went around in 22m09.1s in 1990, posting the first ever four-wheeled lap at more than 100mph.
Higgins set 19m56.67s in 2011, returning in '14 to lower that to 19m15.88s - which equated to 117.51mph. Both of those were set in largely standard Subaru WRX STIs.
This year Subaru USA tasked Prodrive with building the ultimate WRX.
Based on the running gear from a 2008 World Rally Car, but with a bigger turbo fitted to produce 600bhp and 800Nm of torque, it also ran on a pure Dunlop slick for the first time.
Without even completing a full lap in practice, Higgins posted 17m49.75 on the first day of TT competition last Saturday.
Two days later, he went even quicker with a 17m25.139s - an average speed of 128.730mph
