Speculation and predictions for upcoming cars

So, CM have kindly given us some tantalising clues for new cars that will come alongside the features and locations over the next few months (OK, half a year).

So let's have some wild (or educated) guesses and we can see who's closest to the truth as time gets close. No devs allowed :tongue: (OK, you can if you want...)

May: Hillclimbing = "a collection of hillclimb cars"

June: Tarmac / Germany = " acollection of classic rally cars"

July: Rallycross = "a pack of rallycross super cars"

August: Rallycross Expansion = "new cars"

September: Finland = "two legendary cars from two legendary drivers"

October: Modern Masters = "A whole new class of car for you to master in career containing some firm fan favourites"

November: Sweden / Winter Wonderland: "new cars to master"

So obviously I'm not expecting more than two or three cars per pack, and I'm not asking developers to tell us what they are or reveal anything before they plan to, but I just thought it would be interesting to hear people's guesses. I know some of them aren't too descriptive, but have a go with some of the ones that are.

If this should be moved to the gossip thread, please feel free to do so.
Put the Stratos back in H2 please!!!

    Considering the 17 cars we have now all comes from Dirt 3, my guess is that we will se something very close to an identical car pack. This is not so bad considering the Dirt series had so many good assets and they could be now used in a proper rally game.

    The model quality is still very good, and the texture are upgraded from 2k to 4k so again, I'm not complaining. The variety is also quite large, there's a bit of everything but -- correct me if I'm wrong -- not enough to rebuild a set for a specific WRC year of championship.

    Considering DR is aiming at a smaller niche than the classic Dirt line, I would be no surprised to see see no new cars at all but just a recycle of assets (probably except the big trucks/gymkhana/buggies, but the rest all seems perfectly to be compatible with the game modes of DR).

    I would suggest for the pikes peak pack they will inlcude cars they have used previously such as:
    Rod Millen's Toyota Takoma 
    Rhys Millen's Hyundai 
    Monster's Suzuki SX4
    Toyota Celica GT Hillclimb

    Plus Liam Doran's RS200 seeing as hes had decent input into the game and is a reasonable guy and likely to let them have it.

    Im doubtful of Loeb's 208 T16 but that would be awesome.
    Though if that does come we could probably also get Vatanen's 405 as well.

    I was going to say the same thing, but honestly it gets crowded in there, and a majority of what "general discussion" is can fit in that thread. At least this keeps it organized so long as it's on topic.

    As far as what classes are going to get added, on one hand I dont think we'll get anything crazy or classes we dont have now, but on the other hand they said they reworked some aero due to the big wings and downforce on hillclimb cars...

    Classic cars are fine but I'd still prefer to see more recent one's

    So, just looking from a rallying point of view, the following DiRT3 cars stand out as being 'likely' candidates to me:

    Renault Alpine A110
    Opel Kadett
    Opel Manta 400
    Renault 5 Turbo

    Toyota Celica GT-Four (Kankkunen)

    Modern Masters?:
    Ford Focus RS WRC
    Citroën C4 WRC

    Probably not quite enough to fill all the planned content, so looking at the manufacturers who seem willing to play ball with licenses, maybe the Lancia 037 or Subaru Impreza WRC08 could sneak in there too, but it's the 'legendary cars / legendary drivers' one that has me intrigued.

    Couldn't agree with you more; I'm holding onto hope that that's what the 'modern masters' pack will contain.

    There's an interesting interview here ( http://www.videogamer.com/pc/dirt_rally/news/codemasters_announces_dirt_rally_a_hardcore_rally_sim_available_now_on_steam_early_access.html ) that specifically mentions the Peugeot 306 and Seat Ibiza being part of the tarmac pack. Interestingly, this shows that we might not only get models from previous DiRT games (I believe these two would be new?).

    The Peug 306 F2 is a mean 4wD killer on tarmac. Would love to have it. And listen to it ;)

    I have a feeling that Codemasters have a good relationship with peugeot with all the peugeot cars coming. So I think it's likely we'll see the likes of the 206wrc, 307wrc, 207 s2000 and the 208 R5 in the future. Or at least one of them
