words: Bill, video: Hagerty
As the video starts, Ryan reminisces about his 4000 and growing up skiing and lusting after the four rings. We walk (drive) down memory lane as he takes us through an abbreviated history of the quattro through the early rally days and ultimately, the legendary Group B. But then the story takes a violent turn and a monster emerges…the meek 4000 meets its European brother in the form of an Audi 80 with a 4.2 V8 shoved into the engine bay. Watch the video below and hang on…it’s a roller coaster of a ride.
