At big extent, Audi owes its current premium look and feel to the Quattro technology. It was developed after Audi engineer had played with the compact VW Iltis during Finnish winter. Jorg Bensinger noted that the small vehicle is great snow performer gifted with perfect maneuverability. Ferdinand Piech, the man who green-lit Porsche 917 once again proved himself as a visionary manager and played a major role in Audi Quattro program approval.

In line with the market premiere of Audi Quattro in 1980, it entered in rallying just to rock its foundations through the innovation of the all-wheel drive technology. They seemed to be a perfect match.

The first Audi Quattro appearance in Monte Carlo rally caused an absolute sensation. After Hannu Mikkola overtook a Lancia Stratos that had started one minute before him at the first special stage, it became clearly visible that a new era had begun.

Audi managed to dominate even the horrific Group B before it was ceased. This Audi Quattro S1 poster is dedicated to the rally racing car in its E2 version, which was introduced at the end of 1985 as an update to the Audi Sport Quattro. It had 2.1-liter, 5-cylinder engine capable of 500 hp + due to a clever turbocharger that spins in high rpms when the driver is closing the throttle. This allowed reducing turbo lag once you go out of corner or shift gears. The aggressive body kit aimed to increase the downforce needed to keep under control a beast weighing just 1095 kg. It was driven by legends like Michele Mouton and Walter Röhrl, the latter won the Pikes Peak in 1986, the last year that Audi was officially presented in rallying.

Evan DeCiren was born and raised in the Italian-speaking region of Switzerland in the humble family of a superbike mechanic. Naturally, he spent a lot of time in the camper of his father team Honda HRC during various competitions across Europe. Evan has developed a great affinity for comic art and since he was a kid, he wanted to be a designer. And succeeded in a spectacular way.

“I was always into comics – starting with the classic “Mickey Mouse” to the “Japanese Manga”. In ’96 when we went with the whole family to spend a month of our summer vacation being guests to a friend of my father who was Honda FCC engineer. The Japanese culture from here on will become an inspiration in my personal growth”, remembers Evan.

His story is also interesting because he has both mechanical and illustrator degrees. Think of him as the guy capable for both fixing and drawing vehicles. Initially, his comics` studies were influenced by the Japan manga comic style but latter he found inspiration in the design works of Mignola, Miller and Risso. They had helped Evan to form his unique and distinctive style.
