Organizers of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) have provided a sneak preview of the 2017 season which will come with numerous changes in an attempt to spice things up.

All cars are bound to receive a more aggressive aerodynamic package bringing a 55 mm increase in width along with 60 mm front & 30 mm rear longer overhangs and a larger rear wing which will be able to protrude up to 50 mm from the rear bumper. Electronically-controlled center differentials are set to make a comeback while the overall weight of the rally cars will decrease by 25 kg (55 lbs).

Perhaps even more important is the bump in output of the 1.6-liter turbo from 300 bhp (224 kW) to 380 bhp (283 kW) thanks to an increase in the turbocharger's restrictor from 34 to 36 mm while the boost pressure is going to remain capped at a maximum of 2.5 bar.

Speaking about the upcoming regulation changes, reigning world champion Sébastien Ogier said "as a racing driver you are always looking for more performance. I think the larger wing and new aerodynamics will give the car a bit more downforce, more grip and more speed going into the corners."
