This first entry in the “Keith On Cars” blog series covers the Premier Class cars. Give it a read and watch for additional blog entries going up within the next hour or so (depending on how long it takes me to get them all up…).

Sega Rally Revo “Keith On Cars” Developer Blog #1:

Hi, I’m Keith Burden, Lead Car Artist on SEGA Rally and over the coming months I’ll giving you an inside look into the vehicles we’ll be featuring in the game.

The first class and possibly one of the most important is the Premier Class cars. These consist of some top flight Rally fare; the Subaru Impreza WRX STi, Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX, Ford Focus RS, Peugeot 206 WRC, Škoda Fabia, and Citroën Xsara Rallycross car.

The Subaru Impreza and Mitsubishi Evolution IX are iconic for any kind of Rally game, they are well known, cool, and possibly two of the most perfect high performance cars in the world (lots of bhp, big spoilers and enough room for the family – what more do you need?).

The Subaru Impreza was the ‘Master Car’, it was the first car to be built and has been fiddled and tweaked so many times it feels like years since I first started modeling it! The other cars in this class were picked for their legendary Rallying heritage; the Skoda Fabia, Ford Focus RS and Peugeot 206 WRC were all massive players not just in the World Rally Championship but on the global and domestic rally scenes. The Citroën Xsara is one of the most successful competitive rally cars of recent times so it just had to make an appearance in SEGA Rally (The Info Business Rallycross livery is my personal favourite!)

These are some of the cars that have formed the back bone of modern rallying, but don’t for a second think that SEGA Rally consists on your normal main stream Rally Car. We have lots of unlocks, different car variant states, multiple liveries and more importantly lots of specialist car unlocks. At this stage I can’t really divulge exact cars, but think about some of the true Rally (and SEGA Rally) classics and look out for some juicy bonkers motors thrown in for good measure.

All will be revealed in good time!
