It's no secret that rally cars - even WRC machines - are road legal, so that they can get from finish line to start line. But what are they like as road cars? The very English-y-named Henry Catchpole has a go in the very north of England, then at one of M-Sport's testing days.
The Fiesta R5 provides privateers with 90% of a WRC car's performance for 40% of the price. It's the futuuuurrrrreeeeee! As it turns out it's only the clutch and the lack of sound deadening that hampers the R5's suitability as a road car. But would you buy one instead of a supercar?
Yeah, I'd seriously consider it too.
