If Group B is truly the golden era of rally racing, then the Audi Quattro is undeniably the most important rally car of all time, as it was the first on the circuit to feature an all-wheel-drive system. And now’s your chance to own an actual competition version of that very car.

This 1981 Audi Quattro didn’t start out as a competitor, having originally been built as a press car. But the universe had different plans, as it was actually called up to compete under Audi’s U.K. rally team — which included John Buffum, Hannu Mikola, Robert McBurney, and David Sutton among its ranks. One of the first Quattros in the U.K., the car also comes with an accurate in-period competition history, including proof of its participation in the 1983 Rothmans Circuit of Ireland Rally. A remarkably well-kept example of a historically significant rally racer, this car can be yours for $132,000.

Purchase: $132,000
