I see know the car is built for rally-cross. These cars usually have a lot more hp compared to WRC-cars.

But the stats Carbuzz mentioned seems to be the ordinary Fiesta ST.

Richard is right. No WRC-car has 600 hp (although I suspect they actually have a little bit more than the stipulated 300 hp).

The regulations for the WRC don't allow the engines to produce more than 300bhp. Block's gymkhana cars were a different engine as they didn't have to conform to any regulations. The Group B cars of the 80s were running in excess if 500bhp.

These can't be the stats for the rally car Fiesta that Tanner and Ken are going to be driving. Foust's previous WRC fiesta made 600 HP. Why would it drop 400hp for 2014. These are the stats of a regular Fiesta ST.
