Can a Subaru WRX STI Take Down a Jaguar F-Type V6?
These two great cars aren’t competitors. They really couldn’t be any different in terms of, well, everything. But they do have one thing in common: each one appeals to driving enthusiasts, although they too are quite different. The WRX STI happens to be the fastest car ever to have lapped the Isle of Man TT circuit. The F-Type happens to be the F-Type; just all around greatness. But today the crew at Evo isn’t driving the supercharged V8 F-Type. That’d be taking things even more over the top than they are now.
The WRX STI and its 2.0-liter turbo four banger with 272 horsepower is a somewhat better match for the Jag’s 3.0-liter supercharged V6 with 375 hp. Nah, this isn’t a fair fight, but can the STI’s AWD traction at least help it off the line?
