Audi Quattro Retro Art: Ricardo Santos

You know something's going to be good when Alpinestars' resident arbiter of good taste emails a link. The work of Ricardo Santos, art director at Portugal's Turbo Magazine is no different.

Of all the Group B rally cars, the Audi Quattro S1 is without doubt one of the most iconic. Born from the Audi Sport Quattro of the early eighties, the S1 was introduced in 1985 and is widely regarded as the most powerful rally car ever fielded. Its inline 5-cylinder, turbocharged engine unleashed around 600 horsepower to all four wheels, shattering the 0-60 mph in the low 3 second range. Though brutally powerful, the S1 actually only won once race, the 1985 San Remo rally.

We recently showed you a video by Petrolicious of a German man who created an exact replica of the Audi Sport Quattro Group B rally racer.
