Four wheels of fury.
At the 1980 Geneva Motor Show, Audi shocked the world with a high-performance four-wheel drive automobile. The Audi Quattro dominated the Group B rally field and won numerous races due to its four driven wheels and turbocharged inline-five.
The folks at Fifth Gear found an old Audi Quattro and brought us back to a time where the boxy-looking German coupe was at the forefront of the sports car world. The first Quattro models used a turbocharged an intercooled inline-five cylinder engine producing 197 bhp and 210 lb-ft. of torque, giving it a 0-62 mph time of just 7.1 seconds. Later engines would break the 210 horsepower mark with the racing versions boasting over 500 horses.
