Subaru has released a new video of the 2011 Subaru WRX STI setting an all-time course record for the historic Isle of Man TT Mountain Course.
Mark Higgins succeeded to pass the finish line in 19 minutes 37 seconds, while the medium speed was 115.356 MPH.
After the run, Higgins talks through the “moment” at Brey Hill when he momentarily loses, and then regains, control of the WRX STI at more than 150 MPH.
The car in here is a US spec 2011 Subaru WRX STI: It has a new 2.5 liter flat four turbocharged engine with 305 horsepower. The car is capable to do 0-60 mph in 4.9 seconds and the quarter mile 13.7 seconds.
It should also be noted that, in Japan and Europe, the WRX STI models lack the Impreza name. They are officially referred to as the Subaru WRX STI 4-door and Subaru WRX STI 5-door.
