Have you ever wondered if WRC cars are better than the equivalent street version? This video should enlighten you! WRX STI, a pretty powerful street car, didn’t stand a chance against Impreza WRC. Both cars completed a hot lap, but WRX STI was 8 seconds slower than Impreza WRC! The output of both cars is close to 300 HP, but Subaru has done a great job in reducing the weight and improving torque and cornering. Durability is also taken in consideration, since WRC cars should cope with wear and tear of rally racing. In addition, Impreza WRC accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3 seconds on any surface! This is why Impreza WRC costs 630,000 Euros!
That was nuts. Wait until you see the next video below.
