Ford Fiesta RS WRC: Developed from the standard Fiesta road car, the Ford Fiesta RS WRC is a bespoke rally car built by M-Sport for the Works Ford Rally Team for use in the World Rally Championship. The new WRC regulations for 2011 required a turbocharged 1600cc; this engine is both reliable and powerful, thus keeping the flame-spitting character of the WRC cars intact. As number of teams now drive the Fiesta WRC in the World Rally Championship, it has scored an impressive amount of victories and been competitive with both the Works Rally Team and many privateer teams.
Mini Countryman WRC: Debuted by the Mini WRC team during the 2011 World Rally Championship, the Mini Countryman WRC is the first rally car to bear the Mini label in top-level rallying since the 1960s.
