    It sits with less than 8 miles on the odometer because Group B and Group S (the car this class was designed for) were banned before the car could even begin testing.

    It's a sad day when Group B got banned. Sure it was unsafe, but fuck if it wasn't entertaining!

    Walter Rohrl said that group B was the most exciting type of cars he'd ever driven. I feel the biggest factor in killing Group B wasn't Henri Toivonen death. It was the need for crowd control.

    I know most of the Group B cars have turned into hill climbers or rally crossers but that hp might be overkill compared to a modern WRC spec machine on a special stage.
