After breaking the Isle of Man TT circuit record, Subaru now decided to teach some of the world’s finest supercars a lesson at the Pageant of Power.
The 2011 Cholmondeley Pageant of Power, to be held from 15 to 17 July in Cheshire, is the ultimate battle ground for the fastest supercars, to see who’s the quickest around the 1.2-mile technical track.
Even though the Subaru hatchback has to head to head with cars like Ariel Atom V8, Lamborghini LP570-4 Performante, McLaren MP4-12C and a Noble M600, they are confident because 1. They are bringing the limited-edition Cosworth Impreza STI CS400 with 400 PS, lightweight Pro-Race 18-inch alloy wheels, AP Racing six-pot brake callipers and Cosworth-branded interior, and 2. because the car will be driven by former British Rally Champion, Mark Higgins, same man who did the TT record.
So the Suba will either give the big boys a bloody nose, or will return home with its tail between its legs!
Marketing Director of Subaru UK, Kenyon Neads, commented: “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.”
