Audi has released a new promotional video that pits a 1983 Sport Quattro against a 2013 S3 on a rally circuit.
On paper, it looks like a relatively even match as the Sport Quattro only has 6 HP (4 kW) more than the S3. However, the model has a five-speed manual transmission which could give Stig Blomqvist a slight edge over Hermann Müller's S3.
We won't spoil the results but we'll remind you the S3 has a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine that develops 300 HP (221 kW) and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed S tronic transmission and quattro all-wheel drive system which enables the hatchback to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and hit an electronically-limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph).
