You said you wanted to know what the best was for pure power?
Jag: 420hp
sti: 296hp

I think the answer is pretty clear which one has more power.

Now in terms of handling, I'd take the AWD STI for sure. But, you didn't ask about handling.

ok in a race, the jag would probably win in a long circuit race, but if we did a drag race...the STI would OWN the jag. Think, the jag is front wheel drive correct? therefore it floors the shit out of engine, but there will be a loss of acceleration cause it'll drift or burn out slighty.
A wrx STI....can rev the engine to redline....pop the clutch....and DAM that thing will only shoot off without any lose...trust me...4 wheel drive makes a MASSIVE difference.

ok here is my subaru





Not only is that one sexy looking car, but it doesn't look like its got much power eh...well you are WRONG! I take civics, Mitsubishi's, nissans, and many other cars at red lights. Thats a 5 speed manual with 8000rpm redline...and trust me....she flies.

I dare someone to take me with that....heck, i'll race anything even after a nice solid winter snow fall.

You have it wrong here mate,
We are talking about 296 bhps is the Impreza WRX,
we are talking about WRX STI which is approx. 520 bhps
