Audi S3 vs Sport quattro: video

Audi has released a video of Stig Blomqvist and Hermann Muller racing against the clock in a new Audi S3 and a classic Sport quattro. Video here

The new Audi S3 is in no way a rally car, but with almost 300bhp, it’s not far of having the raw power to outgun a legend from Audi’s rallying heritage – the short wheelbase Sport quattro

With Stig Blomqvist behind the wheel of the Audi Sport quattro and Hermann Müller in the new Audi S3, both rally drivers attack a classic gravel route in San Remo.

We’re sure that the £150,000 value and epic rarity of the road-going Sport quattro had something to do with the result, but it’s still fun to see both cars being used off road. It's also a gentle reminder of just how fast hot hatches have become.
