Could you cover some European Historic Rally Championship events? That would be so cool.
BTW that's a group 4 Ferrari not group B. Henri Toivonen used to drive one and his co-driver Seppo Harjanne told that the car went like hell on straights but just wouldn't turn and it was useless on gravel. Quite a few replicas has been built recently by Mäkelä Auto Tuning and those cars are freaking amazing.
Group B always gets all the hype but I must say I prefer group 4. Think about it, Escort RS, 131 Abarth, Stratos, Chevette, Talbot Sunbeam Lotus, TR8, 911 etc.

Oh that Shamal is sexy. And the Jolly Club Escort Cossie. And all the Alfas... Damn, everything in this post is fantastic. Though I'm a bit disapointed that you choose to have that E Type on foreground instead of the Elan or Dino in the same picture.

Lovely pair of Porsches. Would be even better in white. By the way there is actually one more Mezger engined 911: The 991 RSR. So if you're a collector and there is money burning on your pockets, get one before they are all destroyed on race tracks.

When I hear the words "kit car", the first thing that comes to my mind is 90's F2 rally cars. And that sure is an overwhelmingly positive image.

@JDMized Cool wheels and thanks for the info!
It's just baffling that it's taking so long for carbon fiber wheels to take off. Speedline produced prototypes for Lancia in the 80's. The only reason I can come up with is the rules in motorsport that prevent innovation.

Kia should buy Saab and make this the new Saab Sonet. I don't know why, but this just looks like a Saab to me.. in a really really good way

@FunctionFirst @Aisakey @Vittorio Jano It's not the angle. It's the proportions. The front overhang is way too long. Common problem with almost all modern cars. Usually the designers try to hide it by making the nose really round, but that only works for one angle (2nd pic). Also the bonnet line is really high on the front thanks to pedestrian safety.

They should do something similar to Fiat 600 Multipla :D That would be even cooler

Apparently they've listened to Jony Ive and took influence from Braun into their design

More like F1's mobidly obese distant relative. Slapping a sticker on to a F1 car isn't quite enough to turn this horrid creation into a sports car.

@Arnaud Klingboarder Looks like Diablo VT 6.0 with the centre of the front bumper painted black to make it look more like the GT. So it's the first Lambo under Audi ownership but still just a refreshed Diablo

@koko san Lamborghini has always been a forward looking company. Why should they make a retro model? Makes absolutely no sense. What they should do is reinvent supercar like they did with Miura and Countach but haven't made ever since

@dovvv Not all learners are useless behind the wheel. Also underpowered rwd cars are usually very predictable and they start sliding very progressively which helps a lot and especially teaches the driver. Mk1 and Mk2 Escorts have always been considered as the perfect first car for a driver that wants to improve.

For me the RS200 is a no brainer. It didn't have time to prove itself on rally but later rallycross performance showed it's true potential. In many ways the RS200 represented the next generation of group B. Packaging was highly innovative with the gearbox in the front. Also the kevlar chassis and the looks are on another level compared to the competition.

@maxproof @Vittorio Jano I'm not saying that nordic people in general are any more talented than people elsewhere. The amount of Finnish drivers in F1 is more about culture and popularity of the sport. The point is that both Denmark and Finland have about 5,5 million people, so they are very small markets. Since nationalism plays a huge role for an average viewer in high level sports, the sponsors would prefer drivers from bigger markets. Good example is from last year when Slim (the rich guy) just announced that Sauber must hire a Mexican driver. I've also read a lot of speculation, that Massa is still in Ferrari only because Brazil is Santander's biggest market.
