Subaru WRX STI Powered ATV! [Updated with Video]

A quad-bike with a turbocharged Subaru Impreza WRX STi engine? We’ve seen some crazy stuff here at Carscoop but this is totally nuts and we want one ASAP! The custom-made ATV (All-Terrain-Vehicle) was built by Ken Brough, a New-Zealander who describes himself as “a 50-year-old with petrol in my veins”.

The insane quad-bike, which Ken calls the STi ATV, is powered by with a 1990’s Subaru Impreza WRX STi engine linked to a 5-speed gearbox with a clutch assembly from a 1.8-liter Leone. We don’t have any acceleration or horsepower figures but Ken supports that the STi ATV weighs a mere 530 kg (1,168 pounds) so performance is definitely not a problem.

What could raise some flags is the weight distribution of the AWD quad, which is split 70/30 between the front and rear ends. However, that’s something we could live with. Unfortunately, despite his efforts, the owner of the STi ATV says he couldn’t get the four-wheeler approved for road use in New Zealand.
