Do you think your car is fast? Forget it. This thing will run from 0-60 in two seconds flat.

Two! Two seconds.

How do you get a car to do that? Well, this thing has very trick all-wheel drive, a six-speed sequential transmission, and a 580 horsepower 2.0 liter boxer engine.

Which 2.0 liter boxer engine is this? Subaru does not say. Let your imagination run wild.

The great people over at Vermont SportsCar (the same people that build and run Subaru’s Rally America cars) built it and Bucky Lasek will be driving this particular example in GRC this year. Sverre Isachsen will be running their second car.

I want one.

What is the specific highest output per liter in the racing world?

This car has 290 hp/liter

Assuming top fuels are around 8000hp they would be 976 hp/liter. But they can't be measured on a dyno.

F1 - Doesn't count as batteries don't come in liter sizes.

NASCAR - ~850 hp, 5.4 liter, so 147hp/liter

WRC ~ 320hp, 1.6 liter, 200 hp/liter

IndyCAR ~550-700hp, 2.2 liter - 318 hp/liter

I know I am missing a lot of series, I don't have time to get all of them, and if it can't be verified on a dyno it doesn't count. Different race fuels, forced induction, batteries, regulations per series, blah blah blah. This is the internet.

Any other ones people want to chime in on?
