Think I am done with the design so I can post this here. Will submit the car to discord tomorrow or so.
2020 Mara-AMM Xenia 1200 Rally R2
In the 2010s, Mara decided to take the new iteration of its compact car, now called the Xenia, more upmarket. To promote the car (and its new name), Mara tasked their factory performance division AMM with developing a rally version for customer entries in the renowned THRS and other rally and rallycross series.

AMM also decided to enter a works team themselves into THRS, sponsored by UMS, the main rival to Archana’s former state-owned logistics company (and well-known cycling team sponsor) Road and Rail Transport. Rumour has it that part of the deal is the provision of the next generation of the small UMS delivery vans by Mara.
As with the road car, the rally Xenia is powered by the second generation of Mara’s ‘Triyka’ 3-cylinder engine (named after the traditional Archanan way of driving a horse carriage with three horses side-by-side**), now with 1.2l capacity. Turbocharged, the engine puts out 180hp in the rally version, almost double the output over the roadgoing version.
