only the works cars made that power

the road versions only had about 185 BHP



we saw about 6 of those at the ICCCR in Switzerland in 2004

they were having a bit gentle thrash down the airport runway

very impressive cars 8)

Only 185hp!

With 4 wheel drive and the extra weight, a BX16V would leave it behind.

I expect it is not hard to get it modified for the full output though.

The dashboard is superb,

but the car looks really odd side view, with the stretched front end.

It might be clever now, but it won't be in the morning!

it was probably a little quicker than a 16v when it got going

In order to qualify for group B rallying you had to make a certain number of road cars of the same basic spec that anyone could buy

and yes some of those cars were modified to make a lot more power (300-450 BHP) :D

Some were used for rallying but most were used for ice racing

On tarmac they were very quick (2/3 the weight & 4x the power of a 16v)

but not as scary as a Lancia delta S4 :wink:
