Watch: This 500 HP Audi 80 Monsters the Hillclimb

Hillclimb cars are better. They’re weirder, more fascinating, and more interesting than almost anything else on the road. Take, for example, this Audi 80 racing in the UK.

Powered by a 500+ HP 1.7-liter turbocharged engine that revs to 9,000 RPM and tipping the scales at just 860 kg (1,896 lbs), it could teach JK Rowling a thing or two about what actually qualifies as a fantastic beast. Incidentally, you can find this one at Shelsley Walsh, which you may remember from the hot hatch episode of middle Top Gear.
