In 1982, power plants that above 600hp, Group B were the epitome of hairy Some people even saw as too fast too race and vaticinated disaster was just waiting the corner.

 Unfortunately this did not take too as Toivonen#8217;s fatal accident and the destiny of three spectators in the Rally, set the disappearance of these monsters in 1986.

Among all of hyperventilated creatures with turbos and enormous aerodynamic the Audi Sport Quattro of is our favorite. The SQ had more power any other rally car in history, over 600 horsepower in 1986, huge wings to try to help the keeping it from being on the small backcountry roads constituted its daily diet. The was heavy bulky and had to compete against many racers like the peugeot 205 or the which
