    That’s a bad surprise and probably other competition parts aren’t also included on the announced price kit. One gets the idea this Oreca kit will be a sort of BMW or Mercedes endless options list…We’ve also have to wait to know if any private tuner (or team) will really be able to buy the kit and make their R4 car or only FIA/Oreca authorized tuners will be able to build them.

    Don’t take me wrong Co-driven, but is that a reliable number? It seems too much, considering RMC is selling Baratec MR kit based cars (N5 in Spain) for around €160.000.

    That's the info I have for the car built by Baratec (not just the kit). I'd say that the price is from 180k-200k, but not far from that.

    I've read somewhere the engine ORECA will use for the R4 FIA category is the Peugeot 1.6l THP from the 308 GTI

    So an engine well known for many reliability issues both in stock and racing variants. But I can understand that it's the strongest available 1.6T in France so quite an expected choice.

    I know the guy who now works in Oreca as R4 technical project manager and he is really good so I hope it can be good kit.

    is there in the tender or contract specified anything about needed reliability and rebuild intervals on the R4?

    A thought experiment:
    Take a R3t car. New or used.
    Modify chassis, put in a 4wd system.

    What cost could a project like this cost?

    If 150 000 will be the price of the new R4, why are drivers buy the R4 when you can buy a R5 almost new for 170-180 k €?
