The folks over at Carwow got an immense opportunity to film something like this, as Audi does not take museum exhibits out of its vaults on a day-to-day basis, not to mention letting people do drag races in them. Some vehicles were driven by Audi employees, as these were too valuable to be left in the hands of someone outside the company.
For example, Audi's S1 quattro race car, which was driven both by Stig Blomqvist and Walter Rohrl, with the latter rolling it in an event over three decades ago, was only handled by a single person for the entire time it was away from the museum. It was insured for GPB 1.7 million, so it is understandable why nobody else was allowed to get behind the wheel.
Fortunately, since the Brits film these drag races on an airstrip, it is significantly safer to put one of these vehicles there than it is on the open road.
The biggest risk in the case of the latter is not necessarily the driver of the rare vehicle, but rather everyone else on the road. Fortunately, all these examples came back home without any damage after this, so maybe will get to see more content made with them by other journalists.
With that being written, can anyone guess, off the bat, what is the quarter-mile time of the 1985 Audi S1 quattro race car? Do not worry, you will get the answer in the video, so go ahead and watch it below.
