Prodrive builds cars for customer teams too. Under the new rules, costs are supposed to have fallen by a third or so, but, even so, you'll need £400k-odd. That includes spares and a Prodrive technician on hand though. Spend rather more, and you can have full Prodrive back-up and simply turn up and drive. Prodrive reckons to build 25 or so in the first year, running not just in World Rally but (in simpler form) in Super Production championships as well.
