Full review: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/carreviews/firstdrives/260275/audi_quattro_concept.html
Audi is heading back to the future! Thirty years after the original quattro rewrote the rulebook, Audi has re-imagined its most iconic model for the modern age. But can the Quattro Concept, first shown at the Paris show last month, do justice to its illustrious ancestors? Auto Express was first to put this year's most exciting new model to the test.
Renault De'zir Concept review - Auto Express
The DeZir is stunning in the metal. It cuts a menacing shape at two
metres wide and just over a metre high. Head-on, the full-width grille is
flanked by narrow lights with LED 'eyelids' above, while the silver
side-blades ahead of the rear wheels are reminiscent of those seen on the
Mercedes CLS review - Auto Express
It's the original four-door coupé -- and now, the CLS is back for its
difficult second instalment! Since 2004, a total of 170,00 customers have
been seduced by the big Mercedes' blend of luxury and striking good looks.
And it's inspired the likes of the Porsche Panamera and Audi A7. So can the
all-new CLS pick up where its predecessor left off?
VW Polo GTI v Skoda Fabia vRS v SEAT Ibiza Cupra review - Auto Express.
The Volkswagen Polo GTI is a very impressive car. It can do fast and
furious but will also do comfy and relaxing if you like. Really, it's just
like a Golf GTI in miniature. However, for a supermini hot hatch it does
feel a little bit too sensible. As a driver's machine it's not as playful
or as fun as a MINI Cooper S or Renaultsport Clio Cup. Plus, being priced
over £18,000 makes it rather expensive.

Audi Quattro - Group B, the Days of Madness
Credits for this video: www.youtube.com/amjayes
Group B was introduced by the FIA in 1982 as replacement for both Group 4
(modified grand touring) and Group 5 (touring prototypes) cars.
Group A referred to production-derived vehicles limited in terms of power,
weight, allowed technology and overall cost. The base model had to be mass
produced (5000 units/year) and had to have 4 seats. Group A was aimed at
ensuring a large number of privately-owned entries in races.
By contrast, Group B had few restrictions on technology, design and the
number of cars required for homologation to compete—200, less than other
series. Weight was kept as low as possible, high-tech materials were
permitted, and there were no restrictions on Boost, which turned out to mean almost
unlimited power. The category was aimed at car manufacturers by promising
outright competition victories and the subsequent publicity opportunities
without the need for an existing production model. There was also a Group
C, which had a similarly lax approach to chassis and engine development,
but with strict rules on overall weight and maximum fuel load.
Group B was initially a very successful concept, with many manufacturers
joining the premier World Rally Championship, and increased spectator
numbers. But the cost of competing quickly rose, and the performance of the
cars proved too much, resulting in a series of fatal crashes. As a
consequence Group B was cancelled at the end of 1986 and Group A
regulations became the standard for all cars until the advent of World
Rally Cars in 1997.
In the following years Group B found a niche in the European Rallycross
Championship, with cars such as the MG Metro 6R4 and the Ford RS200
competing as late as 1992. For 1993, the FIA replaced the Group B models
with prototypes that had to be based on existing Group A cars, but still
followed the spirit of Group B, with low weight, 4WD, high turboBoost
pressure and staggering amounts of power.

McLaren MP4-12C vs Honda Civic BTCC racer vs Honda Fireblade British Superbike
We know the McLaren 12C is other-worldly fast. But how does it compare
against a Honda Civic British Touring Car Championship racer and a British
Superbike Championship-winning Honda Fireblade?
SUBSCRIBE to Autocar: http://smarturl.it/autocar
We took a McLaren 12C to Rockingham Motor Speedway to face its toughest
challenge yet. Could it outpace a Honda Civic BTCC racer driven by former
champion Gordon Shedden and the pairing of 2013 British Superbike champion
Alex Lowes and his Samsung Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade? Which would set the
fastest lap? Would the Civic's superior grip make up for the power deficit?
Would the McLaren be too much to match on the straight? Or would the 'Blade
offer a blend of light weight and high performance impossible to match?
