Oo, if they make it, and it has 4wd and big power it will be a very interesting car indeed. And if that pic is anything to go by it looks really rather good too!

It'd be even better with a Cosworth badge on the back. Very interesting pictures and with the Impreza being as ugly as it is now there's definately a gap appeared in the market for a car like that.

Well done Ford!

Seems odd to build a FWD car with that many horses, especially after all the criticism of the VXR.

280bhp front drive would be a nightmare on our roads, even with a decent LSD. Still looks great though, I'd be happy just looking at something like that outside my house.

280bhp front wheel would be crap. I'm sure you remapped r26 guys can agree that too much power front end is a reciept for understeer/torque steer.
