    One question appears in my head everytime i'm reminded some car is redesigned for the US market - what the hell is the US gov up to ?? I mean you have a car, which meets none other than the G-E-R-M-A-N quality standard and safety regulations and it's somehow not enough for the US?!?! I mean c'mon american cars from that time are plain death traps compared to any german car. And the emissions - that's the other bullsh!t. So it's ok to have a 5.0L V8 with less than 200hp that can barely cover 18mpg, but a 2.1L turbo inline 5 engine with 200hp, that's twice more economical is somehow more dangerous to the environment ????????

    Everything You Need to Know: it was beaten by a 2WD Lancia, then when Peugeot and Lancia comes with their T16 and Delta S4 the Quattro never seen a victory again.
    Fun fact (real happened): members of the Audi Quattro Rally Team took an helicopter at night and goes in the Lancia Martini Team spot, fastly landing letting one of his man run fastly under the 037 car, trying to know what was the Lancia secret to be so fast and beat the Quattro. They never discovered it even with this cheating tactics, there was no secret under that Lancia.
