DiRT Rally 2.0 New Content Drop .jpg

Two new historic rallycross cars have been made available for DiRT Rally 2.0.


Yes, historic rallycross cars. Now ladies and gentlemen, this should be fun...

With such a rich history of awesomeness to choose from, Codemasters have selected the rather wonderful Lancia Delta S4 Rallycross and MG Metro 6R4 Rallycross cars to form the latest new content drop for DiRT Rally 2.0 - adding two of arguably the top ten most beautiful dirty cars ever to grace a loose surface racing environment.

Coming in as part of the large DLC schedule within DiRT Rally 2.0, both cars are available either as part of the various season pass / deluxe edition packages, or available to purchase separately via the DiRT Rally 2.0 Steam store page.

The Lancia Delta S4 was one of the most ferocious cars to compete in Group B rally. When Group B was disbanded in 1986, many of the Delta S4s that had been in competition were quickly repurposed for Rallycross. Drivers like Matti Alamäki, heavily modified the car, optimising it for the sprint format that is synonymous with Rallycross.

I watched almost all EU Rallycross events back then, on TV: Alamäki, Arnesson, Gollop, Niitymäki etc and off course Mr Rallycross, Martin Schanche!

But AFAIK those cars had >600 HP and even the Metro in later seasons had turbos? Tiff Needell drove the NA version once, Gollop's car IIRC?

I think Delta S4 just isn't powerful enough in DR2 rallycross:)
But they're both pretty well rear end biased to start with which I like!

Cheers

Isn't that the car from Dirt 2? Wasted years literally in that car and title way back when I moved to this new country and I can't get internet connection. 2 years in fact. Now I realized I missed that title and that car.

Gollops Metro appeared in both the British and European RXCs and was rumoured at one point to have in excess of 750bhp using I believe the same configuration as the TWR Jaguar XK220s that had run a LeMans
