Rally legends

We’ve now become used to cars which use their music system to replicate aural symphonies, sounds which used to blare and splutter out of the exhaust. There used to be a time though, where legends like the Audi Quattro S1, Lancia Delta S4, Peugeot 205 and even a Ferrari 288 GTO and 308 GTB used to slither around on gravel, slush and everything else, sounding like little demons. Also referred to as the Golden era of rallying, these Group-B spec rally cars would crackle, spit flames, create a racket, and their antics would reverberate for miles.

In this video, some of those rare legends came back to life at the 12° Rally Legend held in San Marino. Make sure you’ve got your headphones on, or good quality speakers replicating the sound. Take a look, lend some ears, Formula One cars will appear like a washing machine after this.
