Hello

P1 had something like 280 PS @ 6500 and the STI (Prodrive) has 300 - 320 PS. Something along those lines. Think the P1 is far more unique and desirable than an STI :wink: (my opinion only)

just found in latest scooby mag, P1 is 276bhp (280PS) 260 ftlbs torque, 0-60 in 4.8 secs.
Weighed 1295kg - 90 kg less than uk spec wrx at the time.

prodrive claim 4.6 0 - 60 and 12.2 0-100 for ppp sti.

P1 is a nice car. Sti is nice too . | think they both have good and bad points.

ops: Definitely is 4.6. We used the pre-release data sheet for the spec list. which had one or two different facts to the released car.

Another fine mess we've gotten into, Stanley!

My next Impreza will be the STI Type R more likely than not.

I wouldn't buy the P1 because I don't feel you get value for money compared to the other options available.
