Here's More Proof The Toyota Yaris WRC Is The Angriest Rally Car Of Our Time

A compilation of footage from last weekend's Monte Carlo Rally proves that Toyota's anti-lag happy Yaris is the best sounding of the new WRC cars

Thanks to testing footage, we were already knew the Toyota Yaris WRC was an angry-sounding son-of-a-gun. But with 2017’s first round - the Monte Carlo Rally - now done and dusted, it’s been proven beyond doubt that the competition-spec Yaris has the most furious exhaust of all the new WRC cars.

The Yaris - born out of WRC’s radically revamped regulations - arguably sounds its best at low engine speeds andoff throttle, thanks to all kinds of brilliant anti-lag-induced pops and bangs firing out of its pipework. Compare that to the Ford Fiesta RS WRC, which sounds great, but much more restrained.

None of these cars can compete with the glory days of Group B, but they’re easily the most exciting rally machines we’ve seen at the top level for years. And just look at the back of that Yaris! It looks like a Storm Trooper’s face…

If a Yaris Rally driver gets REALLY mad at someone, he could break Yarist.

(Get it? Ya wrist? Yarist? No? Nvm…)

Still, you need Takumi skills to win.

It’s from the part when takumi chases after a celica gt right?

Its as angry at being a Rally Car, as James May is at the existance of the Nurburgring.!!

I’ve seen the prototype on a show and I must say it’s as exciting as the legendary ‘08 Subaru WRX STI. Small, agile and an asphalt killer with a damn good tranny gearbox. I think Toyota aims to push the Volkswagen Polo R WRC off the throne, which plays in the same class.

It was so angry that it made the website crash on me! (I guess it was just a coincidence?)

Never thought I would see ‘Yaris’ and ‘Angry’ in the same title. Oh well.

That moment when you realise a Toyota Yaris sounds better than the latest F1 cars…

Any rallye car without catalysator sounds much better than a Formula 1 race car.

That does actually sound mega. Can’t imagine the road-going Yaris hot hatch will sound like this, though…

I wonder if that wing is very functional. Wouldn’t there be too much turbulance before the air hits the spoiler? Looks it should be higher to have the right effect
