After be­ing de­vel­oped in to­tal se­crecy, the Audi Qu­at­tro rev­o­lu­tionised ral­ly­ing when it was first un­veiled as a four-wheel drive, five-cylin­der, tur­bocharged su­per­car at the 1980 Geneva Mo­tor Show. Now mo­tor­sport ex­pert Nick Gar­ton chron­i­cles the Qu­at­tro’s his­tory both as a road car and com­pet­i­tive racer, de­tail­ing its suc­ces­sion of tri­umphs in­clud­ing three World Cham­pi­onship Rally wins in 1981, World Rally Cham­pi­onship for Makes vic­to­ries in 1982 and 1984, and World Rally Cham­pi­onship for Driv­ers vic­to­ries in 1983 and 1984. The hardback book fea­tures in-depth interviews with many of the en­gi­neers and driv­ers in­volved with the cars, in­clud­ing con­tri­bu­tions from Hannu Mikkola, Stig Blomqvist, Wal­ter Röhrl, Michele Mou­ton, John Buf­fum, Sarel ven der Merwe, Mal­colm Wil­son, Andy Dawson, Fred Gal­lagher, Phil Short, David In­gram, Jari-matti Lat­vala and Audi per­son­nel such as Wal­ter Treser and Roland Gumpert. The text is il­lus­trated with rare pho­tos from the Audi ar­chives and pe­riod images from Rein­hard Klein, the master rally pho­tog­ra­pher.

The Audi Qu­at­tro Rally Car En­thu­si­asts’ Man­ual costs £25.00.
