Exciting visuals on modern WRC cars (Ford Fiesta RS WRC, Mini Countryman JCW WRC & Hyundai i20 WRC)

    Fiesta is really impressive,especially if seen in white test livery it looks much bigger and meaner.Polo looks just perfect-butch and angry and ‘coming to get you!’…Not so sure about DS3-from some angles it’s less OK but overall good design touches,as in the road car.The Mini though,when I first saw it in the flesh at the 2011 Acropolis,nearly got me rolling with laughter.It is just ugly,unbalanced in proportions and unintentionaly funny-in a bad way.Like the whole Mini-Prodrive WRC project actually.

    Hey WRB,just an idea for the future-vote for the prettiest and the ugliest rally cars ever would be a nice topic.
    Imagine the possibilities-Stratos,037,Celica ST165,HF Integrale,206 WRC,Focus mk1…against ‘bug-eye’ 2001 Impreza or Metro 6R4 or Mini…sounds like fun.

    For me the best looking cars are Fiesta and Polo, they look mean and powerful. DS3 is too round, not agressive enough – same goes for Mini. Dark grey on the i20 spoiled it’s looks, it looks like 90’s Hyundai interior – cheap and plastic.
    @ Flat-over-crest – no doubt the winner of the ugliest car ever seen on stages would be Citröen BX 4TC
