“The 1987 winner of the Pikes Peak, that also set the event record in its day.”
Audi introduced full-time 4WD technology into the World Rally Championships in 1981, and showed incredible performance right from the outset. In 1982 they achieved a double victory for both the manufacturers and driver titles, a driver title victory in 1983, and a double title again in 1984.
The engine itself was basically unchanged but it incorporated improvements such as the misfiring (Anti-lag) system, and the final output of the engine was increased to 591 BHP. One improvement of note was also the transmission, a 6-speed semi-automatic with a clutch sensor in the shifter. Later in the year it was also given an aerodynamic body with front spoilers and large front wheel arches to match, together with rear arches with air inlets and a rear wing. By this time the car had matured into the ultimate rallying quattro.
In the same period, Audi modified a WRC spec Sport quattro S1 to hillclimb specifications and took part in the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. The results were spectacular, with Michèle Mouton and Walter Röhrl winning and resetting the track record in 1985 and 1987 respectively.
