Y no lo digo, yo, lo dice su jerifalte... "No longer satisfied with making high-performance Imprezas, the group has declared: "We want to build the world's ultimate Subarus. We want our relationship with Subaru to be like BMW's M badge..."" y Autoexpress dice de él ..." no es como un M... pero casi" ;-) , lo cual es un gran halago, son británicos 320 CV a 6400 rpm. 0-100 en menos de 5 segundos, 280 kms/h. Se puede pedir con 50 CV más ;-) "On the road, the S204 is sensational. Inheriting a reworked 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder boxer engine from its predecessor, the S203, the car puts out 320bhp at 6,400rpm, while torque is 432Nm at 4,400rpm. The 0-60mph sprint is expected to take around 4.5 seconds, and the top speed is 155mph. From 3,000rpm, stronger mid-range torque means the driver can make better use of third gear, particularly in long corners, and still have plenty of revs for lightning exits. Push it beyond 6,000rpm, however, and the retuned exhaust note invades the cabin as it takes on a primeval howl. The six-speed gearbox has short throws. But for a car costing upwards of £24,000 - that's £7,500 more than a standard Japan-spec. You'd expect to have your pants blown off. Although the S204 is quick out of the blocks, it's not explosive, and could do with another 50bhp. However, there are no complaints about the handling. The newcomer gets a stronger chassis, better roll rigidity and revised suspension. But it's the innovative step of fitting dampers to the body structure between the front and rear suspension strut towers that makes the difference. Apart from their ability to iron out vibrations and bumps, plus give a superb ride, they permit smoother initial turn-in, deliver more information to the driver and virtually eliminate understeer. The best-handling STi so far, this car devours corners, helped partly by the grippy Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, which combine effortlessly with chunky four-piston Brembo brake calipers. Inside, though, it's a different story. The cabin is based on a stock STi's, but designers have only added two leather Recaro seats - which are too tight across the hips yet cost £2,700 - and a few extra yards of high-quality leather. As for the exterior, lose the rear wing, S204 badge and 18-inch BBS alloys, and you'd mistake this for a current STi. Yet while work is needed on the aesthetics, nothing comes close at this price for performance and cornering potential. So STi hasn't quite built a car worthy of BMW's M Division - but it's close."
