MotorWeek's Look Back at the Audi Quattro Might Change Your Opinion of the Classic

Classic Cars / Comments

Sometimes hindsight is a bit overrated.

There are some cars which go beyond being simple classics. They become something akin to mythical creatures in our minds, posthumously given superpowers. And this is especially true of the cars which were homologated to race in Group B rallying. Here we can see what MotorWeek thought at the time of the Audi Quattro, a car which, to be fair, did kick ass and take names in rallying. To a staggering extent.

The lesson to be learned here is that, back in 1983, it was a lot harder to make an all-conquering racing machine also behave in a civilized manner as a daily driver.
