Modern WRC cars might not have the horsepower of their Group B grandfathers, but they are still hugely quick thanks to advances in their tires, suspension, and (as you can see here) all-wheel drive.
Just look at how Jari-Matti Latvala steams out of this uphill right hander, grabbing and throwing dirt as he goes.
Actually, just watch all of this pre-Monte Carlo testing video. It is unreal how fast these guys can go on such narrow, uneven, gravel-strewn roads.
