Finally some shots of the R4 rally car designed by Colin McRae himself for a single-make rally series have surfaced. The car debuted at the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend, but shots from that event have been surprisingly hard to come by. We've already told you about the R4 at length here, but to reiterate it's got a 340-hp, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that's mated to a six-speed sequential gearbox. In that form it can hit 60 mph in five seconds, although more powerful versions of the engine are already in the works. McRae designed the £130,000 rally car especially for a single-make rally race series of which we know very little about at this time.

      Looks like concept car. It reminds me Peagaut with it's excentric design

      "looks like a hyundai accent with mega fender flares... "

      You mean, like this one?http://www.carpages.co.uk/hyundai/hyundai_accent_13_11_04.asp

      In any case, looks don't matter much in this car's case. It's a purpose-built competition car, and isn't meant for the wealthy, style-driven, but not necessarily track-minded people who buy Ferraris and AMG Mercedes.

      I think Mr. McRae should stick to driving and leave the design up to others...

      The computerized and hand sketches of this car I saw were awesome. These live shots make it look lame. I don't know how rally cars are constructed, I would think you would need more clearance for the tires in the wheel well, since you are going to be doing some off roading?

      I like the horsepower output, but the biggest thing I don't like about the car is it's cost.

      It's like the facade doesn't fit the frame. It has no clearance at all, would like to see it wrapped around a tree, sans driver and navigator obviously.

      Wow, how are they going to get all those ponies into that fiberglassed Volkswagen Beetle.
