EA SPORTS WRC’s game car list includes hidden gems

The complete car list for the upcoming EA SPORTS game on PC, PlayStation and Xbox is a treasure trove of lost cars, McRae-related classics and even the Seat Cordoba.

The moment many World Rally Championship fans have been waiting for – EA SPORTS WRC’s full car list has been published, and for the cognoscenti, it’s arguably one of the greatest collections of virtual time-based motorsport vehicles ever seen.

The full list is below, courtesy of the game’s website, which covers 78 additions across 18 different classes.

A stand-out highlight is the 2017-specification Volkswagen Polo which never competed in the sport. Following four seasons of domination between 2013 and 2016 by the team, despite having a complete car, the team withdrew in the wake of the 'dieselgate' scandal ahead of the 2017 season.

Apart from private tests in the run-up to that year, the car has never been seen again, until this video game. No images have been released of it in the simulation at this stage. It will be joined by the M-Sport-developed Ford Fiesta in this class.

 

Fans of underdogs will be pleased to see the Seat Cordoba WRC make a rare appearance. It only ever achieved three WRC podiums in its brief career, thanks to Toni Gardemeister, Harri Rovanpera and Didier Auriol. But it was also a star of the 2000 game Colin McRae Rally 2.0. a game this Southam-based development studio can trace its lineage back to.

Joining the previously announced front-wheel-drive Ford Fiesta Rally4 is the current-specification Peugeot 208 and, a significant surprise, the age-old Renault Twingo. Other lesser-spotted rally cars from days gone are the Opel Corsa S2000 and the Group A Mitsubishi Galant VR4.

 

The final element for ardent British Rally Championship supporters comes in the form of the F2 Kit Cars class – these were 2-litre high revving, wide-bodied front-wheel drive monsters, with the Seat Ibiza, Volkswagen Golf and Peugeot 306 all in the studio's previous title, DiRT Rally 2.0. But this time they are joined by the Renault Megane, Ford Escort and Vauxhall Astra.

Speaking of DiRT Rally 2.0, it’s clear that several vehicles on this list are carried over, but it helps the total roster reach 78. There’s no word on whether more will be added via post-release DLC at this stage.

EA SPORTS WRC will be released on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on 3rd November 2023.
