I don't think that'll work out too good...The car doesn't really have much ground clearance lol.

its obviously done well! as quoted in the link......the Rally GT has already competed in three French Rally Championship events. The car came second in its debut in the Lyon to Charbonniers Rally.
but who needs 4wd on a rally car anyway??? look at the Lancia Stratos or the old Ford Escort!!!

It's done well on the French rallys as most rallys in France are tarmac rallys in which I think this car is more suited to. However on the gravel and snow I'm not so sure how well it can do against the Evo's or WRX's. Afterall the AWD quattro did make rear wheel driven rally cars seemed obsolete back in the 80's.

Also it can't be used for WRC as it's engine exceeds the 2 litre limit so I'm not so sure why Prodrive did this.

they did it as it states in the link, for privateers with that extra little money, it does seem pointless but i think it'll be best suited to rallycross
