6. 1983 Audi Ur-Quattro

There’s a lot of special cars on this list, but the Audi Ur-Quattro is probably one of the most legendary. With 23 World Rally Championship wins, a Pikes Peak win, an International Motor Sports Association win and complete domination of the 1989 Trans Am season, the Quattro was a monster of a rally car. The turbocharged five-cylinder engine was also legendary, making a unique noise that is just iconic of Audi’s rallying heritage.

The production car is a rare sight to see. Out of the mere 763 vehicles bought in North America, it’s hard to find one in still road-worthy condition, or one that hasn’t been modified for racing. Regardless, a running and capable Ur-Quattro seems like the right car for when the heavy winter lands!

    What year is this guy living in? There are more cars from the ’60s and ’70s on this list than anything else. Get with it!

    The only intelligent list on here… all the others had stupid cars that don’t even exist.

    Is it just me or are these lists sorely lacking in awesome American cars? Way to hate America, fuckers.

    Why was the open top (one off because Connery was to tall for it) cooler? The coupes lines are perfect.
