1973 - the year it all officially began. As Rally Monte-Carlo raced to a start in the snowy winter month of January, little could we imagine that the sport would capture our imagination for 47 years and go strong. With the FIA World Rally Championship 50th year round the corner (2022), Automobilist revisits the Championship for Manufacturers and presents 47 cars that have braved all odds, climates, surfaces and courses to take top rallying honours.

How it's done
Every image we create is based on a real-life historical event, so to assure accuracy, we put in long hours of research to piece together every little detail.
Once the concept is established, we set to work creating a 3D model using CGI. Studying every piece of reference material available, our artists essentially build a car from scratch, slowly constructing layer upon layer of detail – even down to the correct number of coats of paint.
