Man, after watchin that thing you think Audi...from 1981-88... was on top of rally, GT, and IMSA racing. I just LOVE the strange sound as they go thru the gears....what is that sound anyway...I mean exactly...?<p>Michele Mouton kicked butt<br>Walter Rohlr (sp?) kicked butt<br>Hans Stuck kicked butt<p>and then later...<p>Frank Biela kicked butt (94-97)<p>I sure wish they could get some of this racing 80s...90s....and sport<br>quattros to the Audi Quattro Driving Schools in California. I know<br>they come to the events in Minnesota...<p>Steve S.<br>97 2.8QM

I have that one, and it has some good clips, but I like "The Oficial Story" better. It has a better story, so to say.<p>The other cars were great rally cars, but the S1 was beyond insane and still based on a production car!!! Within 3-4secs of F1 lap times on gravel, oh most holy . . . . and the SOUNDS!! If my UrQ only sounded 1/10th that beastly! I think the chirp you're referring to is the blow-off valve for the turbo.<p>I got them mail order from NYC, but I can't find the catalog. I want to get San Remo '85 :-))))))<p>Todd W
<br>Back in the 80's Hoppen brought out the Sport Quattro down to Mid-Ohio i believe at a QClub event. The legendary John Buffum was driving it, the car hit top speed halfway down the straight, so for fun, they put a chicane in the middle. ahhhh the good ol days!

...where Audi/Auto Union is to be the featured marque. The Quattro Club is trying to get all the Sport Quattros in the U.S. to go to Monterey; supposedly, there are only 8 or 9 left in this country. There were only 200 Sport Quattros ever built, and many were destroyed in competition. Anyway, since Frank Beddor, founder of the Quattro Club, owns a couple of them, I'm sure there will be at least a few at Monterey.<p>The Sport Quattro is a truly beautiful car. It is similar to an Ur-Quattro, but the shorter wheelbase and additional bodywork make it look much sportier, like it wants to eat Porsches for lunch. Also, the engine is much more powerful than an Ur-Q (306 hp stock), and it is light due to extensive kevlar bodywork. <p>Since I live in Minnesota, I've been fortunate enough to see one at two different driving schools. Next time, I'm going to ask for a ride. The one I've seen has been modified to 500 hp, supposedly.<p>Sun International (www.suninternational-usa.com) has a Sport Quattro for sale for the bargain price of $95K. If only...<p>Rich D.
