    for how much do they sell those fiestas,

    if they actually cost them 800k to build, they would have to sell them for over a million.

    It must be some internal parts possible to be reused in that car, isn´t it? I was thinking of engine, gearbox inner parts.

    Or was it a total waste of that car? Anyone?

    Back in the day when a Toyota Corolla WRC burned completely, there was nothing else that remained visibly intact except the titanium parts (damper topmounts, propshaft etc.) but to my knowledge today titanium is mostly banned

    Even after a big crash a lot of parts can be salvaged, or the car can be re-shelled. But with a fire, its a total loss.

    And if M-Sport do have another WRC car they can use for Lappi, thats still one less car theyll have available to sell, hire-out or use for testing...

    Of course the future is a big problem too, but here Millener was talking straight after the loss of the Lappi WRC car and was referring directly to the effect that would have.

    Obviously they have a tight budget and when you have big loss like that, it must be off something, like testing and development work.
