The New Subaru WRX STI Sedan will debut in “Gran Turismo 5”


The New Subaru Impreza XV

Inside the Subaru WRX STI Sedan

The US model is powered by a 305 bhp turbo boxer paired to a 6-speed manual. The STI comes with Multi-Mode Driver Controlled Center Differential (DCCD) with three Auto modes, as well as a manual mode with six driver-selectable differential locking settings.

Both the front and rear suspension systems employ higher-rate springs and thicker front and rear stabilizer bars than the 2010 model: 21 mm vs 20 mm in front and 19 mm vs 18 mm at the back. Spring rates are up by 15.6% up front and 53% behind. Ride height has been lowered too. The standard 18-inch aluminum wheels are lighter too, but many will take the optional BBS forged aluminum-alloy wheels

New Audi TT RS 2012


Rear View

Front View

Under the hood of the new TT-RS model, Audi has placed the same turbocharged 2.5-liter five-cylinder engine as the European model. However, unlike the European model, the American version will deliver an extra 20 HP (up to a total of 360 HP) and will only be mated to a new manual six-speed transmission.

The sprint from 0 to 60 mph will be made in just 4.6 seconds, and after removing the speed limiter, we expect a top speed of around 175 mph.

On the US market, sales of the new TT-RS will begin in Summer 2011. Audi hasn’t revealed prices for the sports car just yet, but they have confirmed that it will be around $10,000 more expensive then the current TT-S model. We expect the TT-RS to be priced at around $61,000 with only 1,000 customers being able to revel in their purchase due to the limited number of units.
