Chris Harris in the Audi Sport quattro

Even though it’s still in its infancy, DRIVE seems to have flooded the internetwork with an awful lot of memorable material, and this latest offering is no different. Chris Harris recently drove a pair of icons from the eighties; Ford’s RS200 and the Audi Sport quattro.

Built as a road-going version of the legendary Group B rally car, the Sport quattro differed from the regular ur-quattro thanks to the fact that its body was 320 mm shorter and wore wider Kevlar panels. The more upright windscreen and A-pillars came from the Audi 80 – a modification carried out to to reduce reflections from the dashboard.

When new, its 2.1 L turbocharged five-cylinder unit developed 228 kW (306 hp); enough to return a 0-100 km/h (62 mph) time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).

If you don’t want to see the RS200 fast forward to 8.02.
