Daily Driving a Rally Car?

World Rally Cars are built on production 1.6-litre four-cylinder cars, but feature turbochargers, anti-lag systems, four-wheel drive, sequential gearboxes, aerodynamic parts and other enhancements.  This video features the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC.  This car has all of the aforementioned mods, but could you use it to perform daily tasks like grocery shopping?

The short answer is Yes, technically.  It has room for one additional passenger and there is some storage space in the back.  However, you can’t lock the vehicle.  You have to remove the steering wheel each time and you have to fold yourself in half when entering and exiting the vehicle.  Then there’s the engine noise.  You’ll probably violate the noise ordinance of any suburban area that you drive through.

As cool as it would be to daily drive a rally car, it’s best reserved for track days.  Would you use a rally car as your primary means of transportation?  Let us know in the comment section below.
