This Audi Sport Quattro Group B art is telling the story of a rally legend
The S1 version of Audi Sport Quattro debuted at the 1000 Lakes rally in 1985. It flaunted dramatic makeover with a massive spoiler in front and large wing at the rear. The engine was tuned to reach over 500 hp but the turbocharger caused air carrier sized turbo-lag. Audi engineers solved the problem by pouring fuel into the turbo to keep it spinning even the throttle is closed. It resulted in epic flame spitting and it was something fans really loved.
Audi Sport Quattro Group B did not cancel its motorsports efforts after Group B cancellation. With Walter Rohrl behind the wheel, it won its first Pikes Peak attempt. True, the car was modified even more with an engine capable of more than 1000 hp. We have to underestimate the fact that Michele Mouton, the first woman ever won WRC rally raced Audi Quattro. Last but not least, back in the day Audi engineers experimented with an automatic racing transmission which 20 years later will pop out as the DSG double-clutch gearbox.
