What if I told you there was a rally where a BMW M1 raced for top honors against a Lancia 037, a Renault 5 Turbo, and a Ferrari 308? Welcome to the Tour Auto 1982.

It's not hard to find pictures of a particular BMW M1 Group 4 racecar wheeling sideways over rally stages, but finding video of the car on the move is pretty rare. Nat that's a shame, because every human alive should hear that wailing straight six.

Don't worry if you don't speak French for this vid, the engine sounds are worth it.

Man, I love pre-Group B rally.
