    No GT car has international homologation valid in rallying.

    OK, but it was talk about that, to allow them in FIA rallies, or is my teflon brain striking again ?

    I have seen Porsche GT3, Nissan 350, and Aston Martin cars. Are there more made ?

    Aston Matrin would be useless on gravel and they do not have a place in rally anyway.

    Sulland: They are very different cars based on different national regulations.

    For example there is huge difference between Porsche of Vallejo in Spain and Porsche of Dobberkau in Germany. The former is complete special made of circuit Porsche Supercup (plastic body panels, special suspension, 470 Hp, carbon brakes, traction control...) and the former is N-GT with normal H gearbox, normal suspension, much heavier etc.

    I think they dont differ much from circuit cars because the Aston Fontes uses on the portuguese rally championship is too used on circuit races.

    Francis: You are not right. Aston used by Fontes is FIA GT Circuit car with six liter V12 engine, that's right. But Prodrive Aston built as rallycar and used in for example Race of Champions is four liter V8 with group N modifications. It's also made of circuit car but these two are really very different.

    Depends on particular gearing. Circuit GT1 Astons around 330 km/h.
