The simply beautiful Lancia Stratos
in traditional Alitalia colours. This is an ex-works car
Just as stunning from the rear
This is the Works Group B S1 Quattro
that Walter Rohl drove in the 1985 RAC Rally. I'm looking pleased
with myself as I have just fulfilled a lifes ambition! The car had
'Do Not Touch' signs all over it and was brought out of Audi UK's
collection. The Audi guy on the stand; Malcolm, noticed my
interest and obvious gooey-eyedness and asked if I would like to
sit in it!
In the hot seat, put simply, Wow!
This is the car that I used to watch on Saturday afternoon TV in
the rally highlights on Grandstand when I was about 14!
A view of the interior of the Group B
Quattro. Extensive rollcage that actually links to both front and
rear struts and forms a semi-spaceframe can be clearly seen. Seat
was vintage Recaro of course!
A second S1 Group B Quattro was at
the show, though there was less information on this car's history.
