Fueron los coches más excitantes y espectaculares que jamás vió un Campeonato del Mundo de rallyes. Para muchos, aquello fue, en realidad, una locura sobre ruedas. Tras su prohibición, nunca más se dió tal libertad para crear unos coches tan extremos como los de aquellos años de la década de los 80. Este libro describe la historia de cada uno de aquellos mónstruos, de los Audi Quattro a los Lancia y Peugeot o coches tan exóticos como los prototipos de Porsche o Mazda e incluye la crónica exhaustiva de la última y polémica temporada de los Grupo B, el año 1986. Otro capítulo narra la desconocida historia de los Grupo S, los teóricos sucesores que nunca llegaron a correr. Como colofón, un capítulo dedicado a lo que fue de aquellos mónstruos, principalmente utilizados para rallye-raids (Dakar), Pikes-Peak, Rallycross, etc. El libro termina con todas la estadísticas, año por año, de la participación de los Grupo B en el mundial. Obviamente, todo ello ilustrado con las superlativas fotos del ya conocido fotógrafo Reinhard Klein.

They were the most exciting cars ever to have graced the international rally scene. To this day, many fans still consider Group B to be the epitome of madness on wheels. Never since have engineers had such a big freedom of choice to create extreme rally cars as they did during that fantastic era of the early 1980s.

This book tells the story of all the cars developed within Group B, from the Quattros to the outstanding Lancias and Peugeots and to the exotic sports cars from Porsche and Mazda. But all the technical development came to a head in the year 1986, when the euphoria somehow turned into an ungovernable risk. The mischief of engineers, politicians and fans led to tragic accidents, which finally resulted in Group B cars being banned from international rallies.

John Davenport, rally-journalist and author of several books on rallying, experienced this era first-hand, as he was Motorsport Director of Austin Rover at the time. His comprehensive knowledge takes the reader on a journey into the fascinating world of these hi-tech rally cars and offers a authoritative insight into the power struggles going on behind the scenes.

The book is filled with photographs from the archive of well known rally-photographer Reinhard Klein and they include many previously unseen pictures. By the use of large prints, they show to best effect the technical details of the cars, the slightly crazy ambiance of the time as well as plenty of action from the special stages.
