Does anyone have a real life sport quattro in the US?
Where did you get it?
What would one cost?
Does anyone know of any for sale in the US?
I bought a 4000 quattro racecar frm a guy in northern california. He was working on a real sport quattro. It was in not very good condition. In fact it was a stripped down shell. Almost all the cool parts were gone.
I looked up a site in britain called dynalynx that makes fake sports out of a regular urquattro. The conversion is quite expensive and not very accurate from the pictures.
There is a web site called carclassics from europe, there are two sport quattros for sale. They are being offered for $75,000.

I do not own a Sport quattro, But do know of the company that do the convertions, the proper name is Dialynx Performance LTD. Based in the UK. the work the performed is of a very high standard and sell spares worldwide. They also are specialise in Ur quattros.
Believe me they are very good convertions, if you see the amount of work that went in to the cars they are very well priced. they cannot be exact due to copywrite. But over come some of the problems that audi could not cure.
Sorry If I go on a bit, but the have built some very good track cars that have been raced in Britain with very good results.
Wish you good luck in your search for a Sport quattro you may have more chance in Austria or Germany, in the UK they are about £40.000 for a good one.

The cool part IS the shell. The rest of it can be procured otherwise.<ul><li><a href="http://forums.audiworld.com/events/msgs/3954.phtml">Post on events forum.</a></li></ul>

A 90 quattro is not the "Sport Quattro" by any means.
That was miktip's 90, not Frank Beddor's. Frank is the founder of the QuattroClub in hte US. He has had up to 3 at one time, I believe he still has 2.
Perry Eyges in Berkeley has one, it is for sale. It is advertised in the QuattroClub's Classifieds right now.
I have seen it run at Laguna Seca. It is fabulous. It is currently being maintained by 2Bennett in Davis, CA.
It is not DOT legal for public street use. (I don't think any of them are.)
Also, parts are ungodly expensive. A new hood goes for $11,000 for example.

Does he have an e-mail address?
Where does he live?
Can he be reached thru the quattro club website?
If you mean Frank, he can probably be reached through the club.
If you mean the guy in Berkeley, you should be able to through the ad at the club.

Frank Beddor has four Sport Q's, two red, two white. He keeps them stored at a shop in Chanhassen, Minnesota. Joe Jeppesen, a VW/Audi/Porsche technician, maintains the cars for Beddor but they are not driven regularly anymore, other than to keep everything in working condition. I believe the last time they left the garage for an extensive period was for the Monterrey Historics. I highly doubt Mr. Beddor would be interested in selling as these cars are extremely rare, and beyond that i know at least a couple of them are quite modified.

> they cannot be exact due to copywrite
Oh, feh! What's that supposed to mean?
They're not exact because it's too much work. If they started with a a 4kq & grafted on a Coupe's hatch, then it'd be more accurate. But then it wouldn't be a drive-in your UrQ, drive-out a SportQ-clone affair.
..but it also wouldn't be butchering an UrQ.
