I can’t post about the Audi Sport Quattro without thinking about the Pikes Peak hillclimb. The Audi won the event in 1985, 1986 and 1987.
This film was made by Peugeot and shows Ari Vatanen taking on the hill in 1988 and setting a new record in a Peugeot 405 T16. At 10 minutes 47.220 seconds he beat the record set by Walter Röhrl the previous year by only 0.63 seconds! I just love the nonchalant way he puts his hand up to shade the sun from his eyes. All this from a man who barely survived a crash at Rally Argentina in 1985.
