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.
