this is more of a what if or can it be done question. would it be possible to build a rally inspired 2010 coupe? it seems they have a lot of ground clearance.

I guess it would depend on your budget.

You can make anything a rally car.

I think he's going for "Rally Inspired" rather than actually racing the car.

In which case it is up to your imagination and wallet what you can do.

the tarmac stage cars arent too high off the ground. A set of team dynamics wheels would go a long way toward the "rally inspired" look. Get a set of rally armor mud flaps and maybe a light bar up front (something removable and reversible) and I think you'd have your look

Moved to "MK2 Focus" since your discussion seems to lean more towards exterior cosmetic changes than it does to actual engine, tuning or exhaust upgrades.

I was thinking about doing this also. I have a Yakima roof rack on my coupe where I was thinking about mounting my lights. The cars do have some major ground clearance, and if you were to install some 16" wheels with a little more aggressive offset wrapped in some chunky tires, I think you would have the look you are looking for.

Gotta have the big mud flaps!
