    A few of my personal favourites would be: Ford RS200 '86; Lancia Stratos; Ford Escort WRC '98; Ford Escort RS Cosworth '94; Lancia Delta HF 4WD '87 in just about that order. I never really understood how the Peugeot 206 WRC was ever seen as much of a looker, as many deemed it at the time that it was campaigning.

    Of today's works crop, I'd say the C4 certainly shades the Focus.

    I am sure you all can tell which is which. And I agree with you, Simplex.

    I may seem weird in saying this, but I love the 2007 Impreza WRC

    You really think so? I always felt it was just an overgrown cockroach. Most disappointing WRC car ever.

    That iconic Rothmans 959 Porsche, oh yes. A random Cayenne (or any Americanesque SUV)? It does nothing for me at all. :\

    I was gonna post the successor to the Audi Quattro S1, it was never even tested by Audi and sits in a museum now.

    Does anyone have a pic? It looks like a Ford RS200 mixed with a SWB Quattro.


    Anyways, my other choice is RAID buggys.

    You didn't think I knew? Well, I guess in a brutish kind of way. I'm not a really large fan of the Cayenne, but it does have the charm.

    I am a fan of the classic Ford Escort, likely already posted. The older RS models have a lot more appeal than the squared-up offerings of later years:

    People seem to forget about Ferrari ever competiting in rallying. Good choice though!

    I thought it was only the 288 GTO... shows what I know. I like it; it has the wedge shape, but is much more balanced than the Stratos, creating a beautiful shape that is even more expressive than the extreme wedge of the original purveyor that was the Lancia.

    Rusty, I thought that Mitsibushi wern't doing a new WRC Evo X, but were only going to do group N.

    Its a shame, because a WRC Evo X would look mega!!

    Mitsubishi will not return to WRC in the next few years anyway because it's too late to start a new car and develop it before WRCs are banned.Maybe an S2000 though.
