There’s still plenty of time before WRC 9 is released on 3rd September 2020 for the PC, Xbox One and PS4 (with other versions to follow). But developers Kylotonn Games have started to build excitement with the first WRC 9 classic rally cars revealed.
The historic rally machines will be offered alongside the latest WRC cars in the officially licensed game. And the list revealed so far include some modern examples, along with a few of the classic rally cars you might except to see.
For those who can’t see the image text clearly, the first group of nine cars revealed are:
- Renault Alpine A110
- Lanci Strator
- Ford Escort MkII RS1800
- Lancia 037
- Lancia Delta HF Integrale Evolution
- VW Polo R WRC
- Lancia Fulvia HF
- Porsche 911 GT3 RS RGT
- Proton Iriz R5
Obviously these are the first WRC 9 classic rally cars revealed. So the list is likely to grow a fair bit before September. And you’ll be able to see all the additions in our WRC 9 car list.
From the first selection, most people would probably expect the Mk2 Escort, Alpine A110, and some Lancias to make the list. The VW Polo R WRC is a much more recent inclusion as it won the driver’s championships in 2013-2016 piloted by Sebastien Ogier and co-driver Julien Ingrassia.
The Porsche 911 GT3 RS RGT is a more unusual example of a rally car, but it’s an interesting and fun choice. In the real world it was originally developed by Romain Dumas and his RD Limited company.
And then there’s the Proton Iriz R5. A car which was never officially sold in the UK, but has been developed by the British Mellors Elliot Motorsport. It’s a modern 4WD 350bhp rally car being raced in various national and WRC series in 2020.
So that’s what we know so far. You can keep up with all the latest news on WRC 9, here. But in the meantime, which cars would you most like to see included in the next update from Kylotonn?
