    That's not comparable at all, sorry. R5 have 32 mm restrictor and there is no chance that R4 would get same or even bigger one as it would make no sense. The aim of creating R4 was to replace N4 not to add competition to R5. Based on the rumors the contrary is going to happen as it looks like R5 will be made even faster (and more expensive).

    By the way from 32 to 34 mm is roughly 10-15% of extra power which is quite huge difference.

    For sure, but knowing how expensive R4's will be and seeing these 3D images, one can ask if Oreca's aim is still to replace N4 or to propose a new rally category to manus...time will tell.

    About that I would say this

    Don't repair what is not broken.
    But who am I. FIA already killed several successful formulas in the past in the name of something new and better.

    What did the N5 price end up at in the end?

    Is N5 based on the Argentinian Maxi rally car? If so I would expect it to be a similar cost?
    The RMC Motorsport website has a contact form with just N (R2, R4 etc) listed as car types.

    As well as a construction/ purchase price, a running cost per season for the area/ events a competitor is going to take part should also be factored in a competition budget. (and all the other variable costs - sponsorship, event entry fees, travel/ accommodation costs, contingency fund for engine/ transmission failures) etc.

    Hard to say. ARV doesn’t sell their Suzuki’s (they’re the brand official tuner) and the handful made by RMC (including the 208’s, one Fiesta and one DS3) were sold to privateers but the final price remained unknown. Btw, apparently RMC asked local ASN to allow a bigger turbo and a 36mm restrictor, but it was refused.
