This is not a clip video.  It is a story.

 

A lot of the footage is breathtaking, but 6:37 in particular strikes me as a Neo-grade "Woah"

Group A required a lot of production parts, unlike Group B.

 

 

 

I knew the Group A engines were bridge ports (my engine is essentially those ports in a 13B, thanks to a homologation scan) but I didn't realize that they still used the tiny stock Nikki carburetor!

 

Video has annoying music in spots but is about the rally overall.  Lots of footage of Quattros, Asconas, Escorts, 037s, Sunbeams, Celicas, Lancers...

Lots and lots of 911s.  But also lots of Delta Integrales, 037s, a Prodrive Legacy that had glowing brakes in broad daylight, a Sierra Sapphire....

This was one of my favorite videos about 20 years ago.

 

 

Audis had the howling 5 cylinder Sound.  Lancias had the screaming whine of their gear driven supercharged engines.  Peugeots just had a relentless, unforgiving wall of Sound.  No antilag, nothing fancy, just 1800cc and a giant KKK turbocharger.

Full rally report on the '83 RAC.

10:00... I'd read somewhere that the Group 4 Audis "looked like they hacked at the car with tin snips" but I thought that was an exaggeration!

At 1:40 mark in this 2012 Monte Carlo Rally video shows grip vs. drift. Maybe Solberg's Fiesta had a better setup? I haven't seen anyone use this "simulcam" since this rally.

In reply to j_tso :

That was really cool. I wish they would show comparisons like that more often.
