    Ken Block's partnership with Audi took off in a spectacular way
    They let him access a secret Audi vault and take their ultimate rally car for a spin

    The car in question is the Audi Quattro RS 002
    And it was supposed to race a class even crazier than the Group B

    Officially, the one-off prototype never raced
    It was supposed to enter the Group S, against cars like the Lancia ECV and Toyota 222d

    The Quattro RS 002 was extremely compact and lightweight
    Its wheelbase looks similar to the Sport Quattro "shorty", which was 320 mm shorter than the original car. At 2,200 pounds, it's also extremely lightweight

    Apparently, it's not even the first mid-engine Audi rally car
    Before the 002, there was a an even more obscure car that was, essentially, a Sport Quattro with the engine in the middle.

    The Quattro RS 002 still uses the 2.1-liter turbocharged inline-five engine
    But while in the Group B car it makes 500 hp, in here, it makes 700

    What's even cooler is, it asks you to shift the gears yourself
    The 002 comes from a time, way before sequential or DCTs were mainstream. You have to tame the power with a six-speed manual

    Ken drives and compares both the Quattro S1 E2 and the Quattro RS 002
    While the front-engine S1 has the engine hanging in front of the front axle, causing it to understeer, the mid-engine 002 has a much better balance

    It's basically a Le Mans car, but meant for rallying
    After Group B, the idea was to move from production cars to more of an LMP-style builds

    This Group B Sport Quattro is Ken's dream Audi car, or at least it was
    This Group B Sport Quattro S1 E2 is the ultimate form of the Quattro rally car as we know it. It's also been driven by Walter Roehrl, at Monte Carlo. However, the mid-engine RS 002 is simply a better platform
