Grand Tour S2:E7 Lancia vs. Audi Rally 1983

Post by stumpy1972 » Thu Feb 08, 2018 9:03 am

If you haven't had a chance to watch it yet on Amazon Prime, The Grand Tour Season 2. Episode 7 did a really cool bit on the 80's rally rivalry between Audi and Lancia and the story on how the 2WD Lancia 037 underdog beat the 4WD Audi Quattro powerhouse in 1983 using some pretty unorthodox methods. Definitely worth a watch.

Thanks...I will watch it. Make me sad that another BIG company absorbs a GREAT company like Lancia and kills it. I had a Lancia Fulvia HF 1.6 (not the fanalone - the later one)....fantastic. More fun than my 2.2 911, but built like shit.

Had a friend with 2 late 70s Lancia Betas 30 yrs ago. The 2.0 was an absolute scream with beautiful leather seats. Loved the look on the faces of the V6 Camaro guys as it quickly walked away from them lol. Virginia rednecks thought it was a Datsun B210 lol

Thanks for the heads up
