Sure the Impreza is good, and the 400  PS Cosworth-tuned STI CS400 is very good. But is it that good to bet cars like Ariel Atom V8, Lamborghini LP570-4 Performante, McLaren MP4-12C and a Noble M600?

Well, that’s what Subaru is confident of accomplishing at this year’s Cholmondeley Pageant of Power, the UK’s biggest celebration of power and speed. The 400PS, Cosworth-tuned, turbocharged supercar-slayer will be piloted during the event by former British Rally Champion, Mark Higgins, who recently set the production road car lap record for the Isle of Man TT circuit in a Subaru WRX STI.

As for the features of the car, it gets lightweight Pro-Race 18-inch alloy wheels, AP Racing six-pot brake callipers and Cosworth-branded interior.But then it costs a whopping £49,995. That’s a bit steep for a Subaru!

In addition to seeing the 2.5-litre Boxer-engined Cosworth take on the challenging sprint course, there will also be a display of two Cosworth Impreza STI CS400s within the paddock where show-goers will be able to see the cars up close
