Audi Quattro Sport Group B - 1984
In 1982 the turbocharged fourwheel-drive audi quattro coupe became the first german car ever to win the world rally championship, and it repeated in 1984. Understandably then, audi had great expectations for its successor, the quattro sport, but this model failed to measure up.
Top speed in excess of 155 mph
engine typedrivetrain: Twin-overhead-cam, turbocharged in-line 5-cylinder
displacement 2,133 cc (2.1 l) power rating nearly 500 hp transmission 5-speed manual
chassis: Suspension by coil springs and macpherson struts; Rack-and-pinion steering; Ventilated disc brakes; 2,425 lbs.
Light, fast and agile
with an 87-in. Wheelbase, the sport was a foot shorter than its predecessor and more powerful, thanks to the new 20-valve, twin-overhead-cam fourth-generation version of the five-cylinder audi engine. Made of fiberglass and kevlar except for the steel doors, this squat vehicle had a hood that bulged out so that the light-alloy 2.1-litre engine would fit inside. It also had a long nose to accommodate the air-to-air intercooler and sharply flared fenders to make room for the fat 15-in. Tires. Two hundred road cars were built to qualify the car for competition.
on paper, the quattro sport looked great, but somehow, despite the use of lightweight materials, it was about 300 lbs. Heavier than hoped for. The engine proved to be capricious and the handling was too live on fast and bumpy
surfaces, although a modification of the suspension improved its comportment. The quattro sport won only one rally, the 1984 ivory coast event.
