850hp Group B Audi Quattro enjoys devouring tarmac

The Group B cars remain legendary machines to this day. You don’t see them in action like you used to, but there are places where they remain the active fire-breathing monsters that we all remember. One of those places is on a hillclimb course, and that’s where we find this amazing specimen.
According to the video description, this one is making 850 horsepower and driver Keith Edwards is basically suggesting courses of action for the nose as it makes its way up to the finish line.

    I know there is an argument to be made that modern rally cars are faster than group b cars were.
    But if you could calculate the speed to safety ration with speed having to be one hundred fold the safety, well then I think I could start to build a case for why it would be so special to see a group b car being driving with purpose.

      Have you watched the 2017 WRC? The cars are pretty spectacular now

        You won’t get an argument from me on that. The new cars are crazy. But there’s something about older rally cars is just cooler.

      FIA Rallycross is pretty much Group B era levels of power.
      I reckon group B is an over rated era in rallying in many respects, sure they were fast, but I find the cars of the previous, mostly RWD and naturally aspirated eras like Ford Escorts, Porsche 911, Fiat 131, Alpine A110, etc. more entertaining to watch.
