    There is different ECU and electronics, brakes, dashboard, front grill mask, airbox, rear axle with strutbar, different link from transmission to gear lever and more. Too many difference.

    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).
    I think production of the R2 car was already stopped.

    Apparently there is also a difference between the German cup car and the French one they used years ago. The French one should be faster.

    Also, there are 2 teams (a French and a Belgian team) who are developping an update for the Adam cup car, to make it more competitive.

    New Ford Fiesta R2 was presented today in Cracow, at the headquarters of M-Sport Poland. This car will be used in Junior WRC 2019.

    Good news from Rüsselsheim - Opel Corsa R2 comes in 2021.

    Good news because it was not obvious, now that Opel belongs to...Peugeot

    Also the Opel could get a Peugeot 208 R2 platform/engine

    Not quite so. You’re right about the future 208 and Corsa sharing the same platform; they’ll use the new CMP (aka EPM1), inaugurated last year on the DS3 Crossback. The current C3 (Mk III) is still based on the previous PF1, launched in 2002 on the initial C3 (also used by the 207, C3 II, DS3 and 208 I).

    Btw, the new 208 (II) will be presented in a couple of weeks in Geneva and the R2 model is expected to be ready next year.
