There is more info on the Euro STi in the latest Car. I found some info on Scoobynet, the UK board.

I'm a little disappointed in the rumored HP - it is lower than the Japanese spec car, prolly due to lower octane gas. The UK model is due to be shown at the Frankfurt auto show, which opens tomorrow!

Bill, you beat me to the punch...

GOOD JOB! :smile:

Yes, folks, the UK is getting the STi and I have a very good feeling we aren't too far behind! :grin:

Specs are 265HP, 261Lb-Ft of Torque and it has:

6 speed box
Brembo's
Front/Rear Suretrac LSD's (I think these are torsen's)
STi suspension
Intercooler water spray

Did I say 6-speed. Yes I did! That is the most important thing that we can wish for in ours.

Why? Because the 5-speed in the WRX is IDENTICAL to a 5-speed in a GC8 RS that many of us drive right now. It is not a good, reliable tranny for gobs of HP. The 6-speed is rumored to be unbreakable, bulletproof (these are some words that have been used to describe it).

More info later...

Just to let all of you guys know- I am currently updating the site with the new UK STi info.

With the tragedy that occured on Tuesday :cry:, I didn't feel like working on the site for the past couple of days. I am sure you guys understand.

So all this info I can find will probably be on the site by next weekend- hopefully sooner. :grin:
