There are faster cars than the Quattro, and definitely more reliable; Audi paved the way” for an all-wheel-drive sports car to enter the market. Yes, I recognize the existence of the four-wheel-drive Jensen Interceptor FF, but that was not exactly a mainstream car, and definitely a GT. Audi not only made it work and work well, but packaged it into a small, relatively light hatchback.
The engine was eventually modified to a 2,226 cc (136 cu in) (2.2 L) inline-5 10 valve, still producing 147 kW (200 PS; 197 bhp), but with peak torque lower in the rev-range. In 1989, it was then changed to a 2,226 cc (136 cu in) inline-5 20v(2.2 L 20v) DOHC setup producing 162 kW (220 PS; 217 bhp), now with a top speed of 230 km/h (143 mph).
The car is a good solid example with a number of mods such as 2Bennett brakes and adjustable suspension. Also had the cylinder head replaced due to cracking on the original. A brand new Dialynx exhaust manifold was fitted at that time as well.
Recent work includes new brake master cylinder, new genuine Audi gear selector rod, 034 motorsport quick shift, upgrated wastegate spring and diaphragm. New engine and transmission mounts.It has the intended acceleration modified ECU fitted as well.
The car has just had a full repaint in its original Helios blue.The bumpers are the European spec front and rear and the grill has been changed to the sport Quattro version with the correct headlamps fitted. The interior has been re trimmed in new Alcantara and grey leather to replicate a sport Q interior. The dash is the rare “taxi” dash with additional gauges fitted for boost, oil and water temperature. The wheels are the correct Ronal R8’s with brand new tyres.
