    Opel is dropping Adam out of production, so last (if I counted right) of current R2s base models is gone now. (208, Fiesta, Twingo, Fabia, C2 has ended way before)

    Bruno Famin has confirmed yesterday that a new 208 R2 is in development, and they aim to sell more of these than the current 208 R2 (of wich over 400 were sold).

    New Peugeot R2 car should be available in 2020. And currently it will not be so difficult to sell more cars as there are not new R2 for a long time (Fiesta is not so much competitive and we will see when will be ready Citroen). Unfortunatelly, it will be R2T car...

    Pity, the current one sounds so much nicer than the turbo Ford

    And it is not only about sound. From spectators point of view R2T cars are more boring to watch. And from drivers perspective, I think that for learning atmospheric engines in small cars are better than turbo ones...

    That's all nice but nobody produces atmospheric engines anymore. There's no choice. Simply get used to that and move on. The sport desperately needs new R2 cars.

    I agree with everything that is said here. We need new R2 cars and there no more atmospheric engine produced. So it's logical and we will have to get used to turbo engines.

    But I will miss the atmospheric engines... Even as a codriver, a turbo car gives less of an impression of speed. The Adam/208 R2 feel faster then the DS3 R3t. It isn't, but you get the feeling it is.

    Hi, could anyone tell main differences between Opel Adam R2 and Opel Adam Cup. Is it only engine?

    Yes, the cup car has stock engine (1.6 N/A +/- 140 Hp), non-adjustable Reiger suspension, non-FIA fuel tank, I think also different brakes but I'm not sure. The gearox is same.

    What is really very bad is that the production of Adam is about to end in May 2019 or so and it looks like Opel will stop also rally cars production by that time (both R2 and Cup).
