    well if you look at the wiki there is a few variations. r5 won monaco first go didnt it but there is a few versions it was pretty good until group b 4wd came and conquered.

    some r5s were upto 350bhp. so you can argue for and against a few places it could sit.

    vjab has been playing/streaming the PS4 version will all the new content in. the alpine looks amazing fun. check him here . hes on every night. https://www.twitch.tv/vajbTV

    Yes, I know there are a lot of variation, and place in the correct category could be difficult.
    As fa as I konw the model which had 350 bhp was the 1985/86 Maxi 5 Turbo.
    In Spain, between 1987 and 1989 (I think) raced a 4wd Maxi 5 Turbo by the Spanish Renault Sport Team. I think it was made in France by request of the Spanish team. If I found more info, I'll post it here

    SPOILER ALERT!!!!: Alpine A110 gameplay. 
    After watching this video, I have a small complaint: I saw that the Renault 5 Turbo is included in the same class as the Sierra RS and M3. I'm my opinion is the wrong class. For me the R5 will fit better in the 70's class or RWD Group B class. I'll will explain you my opinion:
    The model represented in the game is the "Cevennes" or 1982 season version, which is the last evolution that the R5 saw in Gr. 4 version, with 250 bhp. It was a "bridge" between the original Group 4 (the car which won the 1981 Monte-Carlo) and the first Group B model called"Tour de Corse", just before the release of the wider Maxi 5 Turbo. As far as I know,  the original R5 Turbo was homologated and raced as gr.4 in 1979 with the Calberson colours. If they put the R5 Turbo in the same class as the MK II or Stratos, in terms of power, it's the same range but in terms of stage results, maybe the R5 will be beat them. In conclussion: with the homologation form in our hands, the R5 is a Group 4 car that belongs to the 70's class. Ok, it raced in the early 80's, but the MK II, 131 or Stratos raced (with some success) in that years too... 
    Some of  the Cevennes were upgraded and raced as Group B cars in the mid eighties, racing against 037s and Mantas. For me, I would prefer that the developers made the proper "TdC" version to race in the 2WD GR.B, with the different front bumper and narrower but taller wheels.

    This is just my opinion. Maybe I'm wrong, I don't know. Cheers from Spain.

  3. Let's gossip about the Renault 5 Turbo. It looks like the "Cevennes" version, released in early 80's before the Group B "Tour de Corse" as an evolution of the original Group 4 (called by some historians "822"). So my question is, it will be a 70's or RWD Group B competitor?
    In my opinion, the "Cevennes" it's closer to the Gr.4homologation model.
    The same I think about the Alpine. The 1600S for me  it's 70's car. As I can see in the video, the game version doesn't have the front radiator and grille that makes it sexier.

    Just to be clear, I only remembered this message AFTER Paul said it had been figured out. 
    Call it the 'oh yeah' moment from which I suddenly started downplaying the Martini liveries.
    You're also not getting the full info, since the only thing that's really been clarified to the point of it being almost certain is the Impreza.
    Cars wise we probably aren't going to get any more that Burns and McRae drove but we do plan to add some more liveries that should represent McRae on the [redacted] and the [redacted] and maybe, just maybe on the Group A Impreza. You may have to wait till after Early Access ends for those to appear though.

    Very cool! so about those 2 other liveries... im guessing one will be the family sierra. The second either colin's Mk2 escort or Jimmy's MG6R4?
    Or maybe Jimmy's Manta 400...

    @KickUp 

    hello paul

    for the future if i can give you a suggestion  try  to select  and hold the codriver voices better.  

    and try to take people who have a neutral speak  and not  those southitalian accent  (calabria/sicily.etc.)

    i switched on german because of that (i'm italian but my mother is german= i know 3languages :D ) , and german too has  two different voices, and sometimes  near the end of the stages   the last corners are spelled by you in english :)
    Something similar happens in Spanish, at Sweden, in one stage, the last corner is spelled in english
    If you can tell me the exact stages these happen on I can check that we are fixing them in the next update. 
    Sorry, until next weekend I can't play because I'm not at my home due to work issues. Next weekend I'll check that issues and I tell you the stages with troubles. Thank you for your attention.

  7. According to Wikipedia, the homologated cars in R4 class are:
    - Subaru Impreza (2007 STi, 2009 STi Spec C and 2010 STi)
    - Mitsubishi Lancer Evo (IX and X)
    - Peugeot 208 (really...)
    - Renault Megane RS (I thought that was homologated as N4)

    Hope I'm wrong, but I think that the new pack will look as a Subaru cup. Nowadays, I'm excited with the new pack, new cars are always welcome to me!
