Audi Quattro 2.2 20v Turbo – Group B Rally Recreation

To Be Auctioned

Description

Audi Quattro 2.2 20v Turbo – Group B Rally Recreation – A road-registered homage to the Audi Quattro campaigned by the renowned rally driver Michele Mouton. Trailered to and from events from our vendor’s private collection.

Michèle Mouton is perhaps most famous for competing in the World Rally Championship for the Audi factory team taking took four victories and finishing runner-up in the Drivers’ World Championship in 1982. Mouton made her debut in rallying as a co-driver but quickly moved to the driver’s seat, steering an Alpine-Renault A110 in national rallies. In 1975, she competed in circuit racing and won the two-litre prototype class in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. After being signed by Fiat France for 1977, Mouton finished runner-up to Bernard Darniche in the European Rally Championship.

She went on to win the 1978 Tour de France Automobile and record consistent results in her home events in the WRC; the Tour de Corse and the Monte Carlo Rally. For 1981, Audi Sport signed Mouton to partner Hannu Mikkola and in her first year with the Audi Quattro, she took a surprise victory at the Rallye San Remo. In the 1982 World Rally season, Mouton finished a close second overall to Walter Röhrl, after wins in Portugal, Brazil and Greece, and helped Audi to its first manufacturers’ title.

Our vendor, a huge fan of Mme. Mouton back in the day, purchased this special car in 2016 where it joined a collection of period race and rally cars. First registered in the UK on 21st October 1982, the car retains its UK V5C and although road-registered our vendor informs us that some enhancements would be required to enjoy the car on the road with confidence. Naturally MOT exempt, our vendor would recommend the buyer seek professional advice before committing the car to the open road.

Trailered to various shows and often lent to friends for business promotional purposes, this rather fine re-creation would make an ideal show car and an interesting addition to any collection. Regretfully offered to auction to fulfil the need to slim down his collection due to advancing years, this car has great potential.
