The guys from Evo Magazine staged another one of their famous drag battles to see if the fastest car to have lapped the Isle of Man TT circuit is a match for a full-blooded sports car in straight line. We are of course talking about the new Subaru WRX STI and the Jaguar F-Type, the V6 S variant.

Regardless of the result, the performance of the 2015 Subaru WRX STI is admirable. The combination of a flat-four and one of the best performance-oriented four-wheel-drive systems ever built gives this sports sedan enough confidence to take on the big boys. It still loses, but it loses with its head held up high!Subaru WRX STI Take on Jaguar F-Type in Drag Battle,
