Do you want to build an actual rally car? Most of the ones I've seen at Rally America events are Imprezas or other economy hatchbacks like the Ford Focus and VW Golf, although once I saw a Porsche 944. Per regulation the cars have a full interior roll cage and fog lights, as well as off-road tires. Usually people have beefed up bumpers and/or performance exhaust as well. On a more personal note, my friend and I are building a rally car out of a 1985 VW Golf 4-door with a VR6 out of a 2000 GTI. It's not too fancy right now, just a baby blue hatchback with white doors.

You want to create a car model in mc or in irl? As is later then your budget plays major role.

Actually the bumpers and exhaust have to be stock and cant be modified. Having them can get you disqualified on the spot. The only possible modifications allowed by FIA include; engine displacement, 4wheel drive, forced induction sequential gearbox, up to 1230kg weight reduction and chassis.

Any other mod = on spot disqualification from event.

Rally America has different rules. Each class has different rules, but nearly all classes allow for bodywork and exhaust modifications, as well as aerodynamic components. Since FIA runs WRC though it might make more sense to stick by their rules unless you're looking at racing in Rally America events,
