The simple mention of the Isle of Man already whets the appetites of gear heads worldwide. Most of the time, we hear about the two-wheeled exploits on that historic course. This time around, it's an Isle of Man tale about four wheels, a US spec 2011 Subaru WRX STI, driven by Mark Higgins. The STI was a standard 305 HP turbocharged boxer engine with added safety mods and a louder exhaust to warn spectators of the on-coming car. The speed limiter was turned off to allow a higher maximum speed.
During Higgin's attack on the 37 mile track, he reached speeds of 162mph, averaged 115mph, and completed the course with a time of 19 minutes 37 seconds.
Now, turn up that volume and enjoy!
