VIDEO> Sights and Sounds of Group B Rally

Keeping with my current obsession with Group B rally and looking to keep a pattern going, I present to you a compilation video of various Group B cars, and more importantly, the glorious sounds they make. While there are always going to be cars that make wonderful noises that make you feel all tingly inside, you’ll be hard pressed to find anything that is as aurally pleasing as the likes of an Audi Quattro hammering on the rev-limiter. Everything about Group B was absolutely mythic. The speed, the power, the sound, the driving conditions (whether that be the weather itself or the audacity of the crowds). One might even think that the Gods themselves took on the sport, which would explain the talent behind the wheel. But that’s enough rambling from me. Sit back, turn up the volume, and enjoy!

    Absolutely fantastic video of an epic era in rally history. The sounds and sights are amazing, the speeds were bonkers and the safety regulations sheer lunacy.
    Also, take some time to spot the odd ones out between the famous. Ofcourse there are the Lancia 037, Delta and Stratos and ofcourse there’s the Peugeot 205 Turbo-16 and Renault 5 Turbo, Audi Quattro and Ford RS200.
    However there’s also a Nissan 240rs in there, a Mazda Rx7 (that was recently featured here or on speedhunters in a post I belive). There’s also Citro├źn BX 4TC, Ferrari 308GTB, Porsche 911, BMW M1 and the list goes on.
    This was an instant favorite video for me, thanks!
