If you're a fan of historic rally cars, and especially the Audi Quattro, then this is a competition not to be missed.
Wrc.com has teamed up with McKlein Publishing to offer three copies of its fabulous new book 'Audi Quattro - A Rally History' personally signed by the world renowned rally photographer Reinhard Klein.
The turbocharged, four-wheel-drive Audi Quattro sparked a WRC revolution when it made its competitive debut on the 1981 Rallye Monte Carlo.
After only ten snow-covered kilometres of the first special stage, Hannu Mikkola in a Quattro had caught and passed the helpless Lancia Stratos of Bernard Darniche, the winning combination in 1979.
Superb traction and seemingly limitless power were the keys to its success that made the Quattro legendary and helped Audi to capture the hearts of thousands of fans.
Author John Davenport, a former rally co-driver and team manager, experienced that era at first hand and narrates - rally by rally - the complete history of the Audi Quattro. How four-wheel-drive revolutionized the rally world, how Michèle Mouton put the fear of God into manhood, and how Walter Röhrl made himself immortal in the Sport Quattro E2.
The world-famous rally photographer Reinhard Klein followed the Quattro show around the globe and captured the mood of those days in an unforgettable way. In this high-quality book, he shows his most beautiful - some of them previously unpublished - pictures.
A presentation of all the rally cars that Audi has launched, from the Audi 80 to the Quattros and the Coupé S2, as well as a comprehensive statistics section, make this 252-page book a terrific addition to any coffee table.
