    The P1 and 22B which are the fastest Impreza's so far only had 280PS (176bhp)

    The standard WRX's like this one in the article is, had around 220bhp. This is a very unworked engine, no stress. It can easily handle more thats why they'll release an STI version with about 270+bhp

    The P1 and 22B have much more than 176bhp. It's well past the 200 mark

    280ps is 276bhp... future jap sports cars will be stupidly powerful as there used to be an agreement that stated their cars could have no more than 300bhp once they leave the factory.

    The agreement's apparently ended now and the next supra\skylines will see 500bhp or so.

    Or so I heard

    My FIL is seriously looking at a new STI - The 2.5 litre engine spreads the torque better.
    Stick as ugly as sin though and NOT a hatch!
