It's an ongoing project that may never be finished, because of Frank's never-ending obsession with speed. We had to take it for a ride.

Group B Worship: Ford RS200 and Audi Sport Quattro - CHRIS HARRIS ON CARS
To enter Group B in the 1980s, car makers had to build 200 road-going examples of the car they intended to rally. These rules created some of the most spectacular road cars of all time. I love rallying: the chance to drive an RS200 and a Sport Quattro nearly sent me to the nut-house. Fire up the Quattro!
