The second placed car is the Subaru WRX which has 268bhp and retails for $168,600 with COE, which works out to $658.96/bhp. Third place belonged to another Subaru, the Subaru BRZ, but it's been displaced by another new comer: the to-be launched Renault Clio RS which packs 200bhp in a package costing $144,999 with COE.
