    I think C2R2 must be around the same numbers, huge amounts of these was sold.

    Rough number of R5s from ewrc listing:
    Fiesta ~260
    Fabia ~220
    DS3 ~75
    208 T16 ~60
    i20 ~20

    Does this meant that only M-Sport and Skoda takes R5 business / development seriously enough?

    Wait for Polo. The car is not even complete and they have 15 orders already. And remember there are 2015 where they build that machines except i20 who was built year later.

    They have way more than 15 orders...

    They can produce/deliver 15 cars this year (2018)

    Thata;s fine but are they going to continue developing it in the next couple of years or so and continue sharing updates with their customers?

    Btw does anyone know why R5 models i20 and Polo are made from 4 door models instead of 2 door models, unlike their WRC counterparts. For sure both are rigid enough, but at least I've always felt that 4 door models doesn't bring the rallycar / racecar feeling

    Because there isn`t a new Polo roadcar with 2 doors available from the factory, only 4 doors and they aren`t planning one. Polo WRC with 2 doors was the previous generation chassis. Same case was with the i20, at that time (homologation) it was only possible to use the 4 door version, 2 doors arrived later.

    Same with Citroen C3 and Skoda Fabia (only 5-door road car available)

    Are you sure that enough two doors are produced over a short enough time for it to be classified (homologated).
