The 4D Contest Car is a slightly tuned up version of Porsche March Indy developed by Lukas Loehrer for the 1.0 versions of the game. The motivation for the creation of the car were the differences in handling, jumping behaviour and the Indy car power curve between 1.0 and 1.1 versions, which result in a significant performance advantage for 1.1 versions (see Game versions for details). It was implemented in his competition Stunts Grand Prix .

The 4D Contest Car was tuned to reproduce as well as possible the performance of 1.1 Indy, in order to allow racers using the 1.0 versions to compete on equal footing with 1.1 drivers at Indy competitions. Lukas Loehrer released two versions of the Contest Car, labeled 0.85 (August 1997, replaced the original Indy) and 0.9 (August 1998, works as an independent car). The car saw widespread use by the time of its inception, but gradually competitions dropped official support of 1.0 versions (the last one to do so being Kalpen) and racers migrated to 1.1.
