Concept art (Monarch 401)

Concept art of the Mirage 401 Rally Car.

Sleek and powerful, the 4x4 Rally Cars are great off the mark and around corners, with loads of traction, tough suspension and great braking power. Get them off-road and they're also a massive favourite with fans of the handbrake turn.

Rally Cars were the fastest vehicle class in MotorStorm series until the appearance of Supercars. However, they are also among the weakest vehicles in terms of damage resistance. They can take down ATVs, Bikes, Buggies, and sometimes Racing Trucks, but they cannot withstand the power of Mud Pluggers and especially the immense Big Rigs & Monster Trucks. The Rally Cars in MotorStorm: Apocalypse are capable of ramming, albeit ineffectively, SuperMinis and Buggies a fair bit off course. They can take down Supercars and Muscle Cars as well, but they have to catch up with them first as Rally Cars are slower.

Rally Cars were also one of the most difficult vehicle classes to control. However, in Apocalypse, Rally Cars now handle better than before, but are still no doubt the fastest class, if you can find the right routes and boost patterns. Compared to the Rally Cars, Supercars have faster boost acceleration but worse damage resistance, and Muscle Cars have higher boosting top speed and more resistance to damage but suffer from heavy understeering.

List of Rally CarsEdit

ResemblanceEdit

Before Apocalypse, Rally Cars seemed to be any category of mid-size car. However, with the introduction of Supercars and Muscle Cars, Rally Cars became true to their name, with most of them being based on real-life Rally Cars. More information about these resemblances can be found on their respective pages.

TriviaEdit

  • Rally Cars often favour flat, even terrain. Their weaknesses are any other types of terrain, apart from sand. An exception to this rule is the Italia Gagliano, which seems to cope with uneven surfaces better than others.
  • A model of rally car is depicted in the E3 2005 trailer that does not closely resemble any rally car in any game in the MotorStorm series. Instead, it closely resembles the real life Škoda Octavia. The car was wrecked twice, with a racing truck that resembles both the Springbok Kalahari and Namibia forcing it off the road and hitting a tree. This car is spotted in concept art for MotorStorm (as well as in the game's intro movie), hinting that it was to be a playable vehicle before it was scrapped.
