    The 2.0T/2.4T engines of Mitsubishi, Hyundai and Chrysler/Dodge were really developed as a joint venture. At least the engine block of Mitsubishi 4B11 and Hyundai Theta II is same. The block itself was even designed by Hyundai. Therefore if Hyundai used Theta II with shorter stroke as a base engine for R5 it's the case mentioned in the article.

    Besides, again it seems likely the VW will share a lot with the Skoda and now they borrowed one of their drivers too.

    An other question.

    Are there any drivers ho have plans to compete whit the Opel R5 car? Or has it not been homologated yet?
    Would be a nice adition to the other R5 cars.

    And isn't there a Mitsu R5 somewhere also? And what about the proton?

    Wich R5 cars have ever been build so far?

    It's not homologated and the question is whether it will ever be.

    Mitsubishi is not homologated. It's running in some national events under national homologation and in APRC under regional homologation though.

    Not yet homologated either but it's likely going to be.

    Internationally homologated to date: Peugeot 208 T16 R5, CitroŽn DS3 R5, Ford Fiesta R5, Škoda Fabia R5, Hyndai i20 R5.

    MItsubishi R5 even non homologated found it's place in Sweden, Finland, UK. Is there possibility that Opel R5 might be used in DE, or other countries? Is there class to run non homologated R5 spec car? And are in middle Europe some hardcore Opel rally drivers, who could be very interested in it?
