MOTORSPORT F5000 GROUP B
More grunt than grip. Or, to paraphrase 1950s ace Tony Brooks, competition cars should have more power than their chassis can reasonably handle.
That’s our starting point for motorsport monsters. Some of the cars we’ve picked were pacesetting benchmarks in the sport’s history, some were competitive in a given era, while others were failures. But all were spectacular, and gave their pilots some serious work to do.
With the rise of downforce and evermore understanding of how to make cars go quickly, modern machines tend not to display the sort of sideways, flame-spitting antics many of us find appealing, but some spectacular kit can still be found. And there are plenty of great monsters throughout motorsport history, from a wide range of disciplines.
There were plenty of worthy candidates we’ve had to leave out, but hopefully you will enjoy our selection of some of the very best cars that have helped make motorsport so special over the years.
