Audi Quattro Rally Car Enthusiasts’ Manual
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.
