Audi unveiled a new promotional video that puts head to head classic and modern technology: the current S3 sports sedan versus the 1983 Audi Sport quattro. The two models were driven by Stig Blomqvist in the Audi Sport quattro and Hermann Müller in the Audi S3, and the test took place on the old rally track in San Remo.

As a reminder, the 2013 S3 is powered by a 2.0-liter TFSI four-cylinder engine that develops 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. It goes from 0 to 60 mph in 5.1 seconds and up to a top speed of 155 mph. The Sport Quattro used a 2.1-liter engine rated at 306 horsepower in the road-going version and 444 horsepower in the race version.

Check out the video to see these cars duke it out. Can you guess which car won?
