I've been doing a little research on this class. Will all the cars use Honda engines?
If so, how will the cars differ? For example, will the Chevrolet Agile, Fiat, Villagra's Ford and the VW's all have a Honda engine?

So they will all have the same engine, but not sure on the suspension, gearbox etc - are there some regulations produced for this class ?

Any news on this class, more cars made, and do you know any prices ?
What is the plan for 2011; more countries in the region adopting this plan, or will it only be in Argentina ?

Yes, for this year there are a few other cars expected:
- Ford Fiesta with Villagra's team;
- Chevrolet Agile with Tango Rally Team;
- 2 more VW Gol;
- 2 Fiat Punto;
- There's at least one Peugeot 207.
Besides that, I heard that Kia may enter too. Rumors say that there will be two cars in Paraguay and in Brazil it's being said that Mauricio Neves (the one that took part of the Dakar with VW Motorsport) is building some cars too.

So are they rebuilding S2000 fiestas, 207s and GPuntos to fit the Maxi Rally regs ?
Are the class regulations available online somewhere ?

No, they are building new cars under the MaxiRally specs. The Fiesta and 207 aren't the same as the S2000. The 207 isn't the same 207 in Europe, it's more likely the 206+. The Fiesta is a bit different too, with 5 doors. The Punto has the same appearence as the S2000, but aren't the same.
It's the same engine, gearbox and differentials for all cars.
