Audi Quattro RS7 Group B Tribute rendered

A modern Quattro S1 rally car

Frédric Louis imagined how a Group B Audi RS7 Sportback would look like and came up with these two renders.

Inspired by the recently unveiled 2014 Audi RS7 Sportback, the artist evokes the Group B glory days of the 80s when Audi had the legendary Quattro S1 with its 5-cylinder, 2.1-liter engine. Those were the times when the competition was fierce as Lancia had the Delta S4 while Renault developed the R5 Turbo.

As a reminder, the RS7 makes use of a twin-turbo V8 4.0-liter gasoline engine (taken from the RS6 Avant) producing 560 HP (412 kW) and 700 Nm (516 lb-ft). Power is delivered to the quattro system through an 8-speed automatic gearbox which rockets the Sportback to 62 mph (100 km/h) in 3.9 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph (305 km/h) when equipped with the optional Dynamic Plus Package.

Thanks to Pieter for the tip!

I can only see one contemporary car on which this would look good and not "out of place": the Quattro concept (or its production version). Are you reading this Audi?

It's something to think about for the Quattro concept.

As much as I love the group B race cars, the RS7 is not fit for this tribute. its more of a luxury Limo than a rally monster, maybe the TT RS or RS5. I am waiting for someone to do a Lancia group B tribute

Agreed with this car not being fit for this purpose. This colour scheme would be alot better on a TT RS or an A1 Quattro.
