    The 2006 Impreza is the best looking, does anyone know if it is getting a new livery for the 2007 model they are using in Mexico?

    I like the pug 205 rally cars. They just look insane. the RS200 isn't to shabby either. Really clean cut.

    Oh, come on, get into those corners and fling it sideways like a 410, Heidfeld.

    Someone get Danny Lasowzki or some other World of Outlaws driver in the car.

    This is a terribly long and subjective thread but you've all missed my favorites.

    I vote for that Ferrari 288 (or is it a 308?), anyway that's a pretty sweet rally car. Other than that, the Audi S1 and Lancia Delta get my votes.

    There have been so many great looking rally cars to date, that it's hard to pick one specific. Because of the great looks and due to the unique sound, the Audi Quattro A2 is my favourite though:

    A car that isn't mentioned yet here is the Peugeot 306 Maxi. It may be FF only, it really looks :drool:

    Since the Audi Quattro, almost every rally car has been AWD. Dunno why it was banned though, check Wikipedia.

    AWD wins rallys. Driving all 4 wheels will always be faster off-road than driving just 2.

    Rallying was restricted because both drivers and spectators started dying. The Group Bs had 600hp+ and were just far too fast. Spectators would be standing inches on both sides from cars doing more than 100mph, and even in front of the cars on straights to get photos. Nowadays they're restricted to 300hp, 2 litre, turbocharged, in-line 4 cylinder engines - and are only now (the last few years) recording stage times the same as the Group B cars. However, spectator behaviour has improved (except from in Portugal), marshelling has been improved, and the stages themselves are generally safer - although fatalities still occur (Michael Park and Peter Brock in 2005, for example).

    Hope that goes towards answering your question.

    If you are referring to this...


    [​IMG]


    ...its not a Stratos (the Toyota on the front is a clue), but rather the very rare rally spec MR2.

    Ah, no.

    The Lancia Stratos is the best looking rally car of all time.

    The MR2 looks like a military target drone. :D I bet it went well, though.

    That one is beyond even the Evo versions. That particular car is Mach 2 car used by Stig Blomqvist to take on Pikes Peak. I saw it run at the 2003 Rally Supercar day at Castle Combe (with Stig driving), it kicks out 840bhp and was quite simply a monster.
