Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2.
This car was driven by Walter Rohrl and co-driven by Phil Short on the 1985 Lombard RAC Rally.
It had 520bhp and a six-speed semi-automatic gearbox. To go up the gears you had to pull back on the gear lever and to go down push forward. The clutch was just used for starting off. This meant you you could keep the power on, left-foot brake and change gear at the same time.
In an interview Walter said that the car was too fast for his reactions and he had no time to look at what gear he was in on the dashboard read-out because the car was going so quick!
