    Quite possibly one of the most unusual rally cars I've ever seen. Driven by Subaru WRC driver Stephane Sarrazin on the Lyon-Charbonnieres rally this weekend. Built by Prodrive for Frederic Dor. :D

    i still have the marks on my head / helmet and the bad back from a weeks worth of testing, thanks to a roll cage that makes an already small car, V small!.

    If you rally an aston, i recommend being under 5.8 foot tall! :p


    it's also currently quieter than a std one, due to the road car not having to pass the rally 101dBa limits - DOH!

    If it were mine everytime I heard a stone hit the body work I'd be thinking "that's another £500!!!" ;)

    those really special, rare, expensive, gold encrusted bonnet pins are available at Demon Tweeks. They seem to be popping up everywhere at the minute.

    I wonder what inspired Mr Dor to rally one of these...

    Has he already tried the Ferrari 550 Maranello rally car? :think: :D
