Those Monte nights.
“It was a fantastic car to drive. In race trim we had about 560 bhp and in tests we got 600 bhp out of it. The acceleration was amazing, with no lag whatsoever. It went from 0-100 km/h in under three seconds and from 0-200 km/h in 9,6 seconds.” - World Rally Champion Hannu Mikkola about Audi´s Quattro S1 (E2) Group B monster car.
“The E2 was the most mind-blowing car of my rally career. At the San Remo Rally 1985 I set 29 fastest times on 43 special stages. Everyone else could only sit and watch.” - Walter Röhrl about the only WRC-level triumph of the Audi wing monster.
“The Audi had big wings back then. The faster you dared to drive it, the harder it stuck to the road and the grid increased. It was really hard to find the limit that would still keep the car on the road” - Hannu Mikkola about the Audi S1 in the 1000 Lakes Rally 1985.
“The Germans are coming” - Audi Sport´s Group B monster E2 Quattro (also known as S1) making its world-wide debut in the 1985 Olympus Rally in USA - driven by Hannu Mikkola.
