The new Subaru WRX STI rallycross car is getting a wide body kit, the METHOD race wheels, the improved aerodynamics, revised suspension geometry, optimized weight distribution and several other tweaks. Power is said to be provided by a 2.0 liter Boxer engine, which is capable of producing a total output of 580 HP (432 kW). The unit is connected to the 6-speed SADEV sequential transmission which is sending power to the all-wheel drive system. From 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h), the rallycross car can accelerate in just 2.0 seconds. More details on it are limited at this time and will probably be announced over the next few months.
