The legendary Audi 200 trans-am quattro!
Well, i’m a self-confessed Audi person; however these days i’ve had an overwhelming fascination with the Audi RS2. Developed with Porsche in the mid-90s, the Audi RS2 is the beginning of the entire RS brigade that Audi would further launch afterwards.
Yes, it’s a wagon—yes it was engineered by Porsche—-and yes it’s faster from 0-30 than a McLaren F1. They never brought these to the USA, and that blows—-however word is there are a couple in the US, and a couple more that are being converted into RS2s from regular Audi 80/90. Avants…..interesting.
A friend of mine from Norway, Espen—-recently had his RS2 stolen in Norway. Those daft bastards—–you’re gonna get busted.
I have to admit, i am a big Audi fan…..classic and modern ones. This 100 Coupe is one of the coolest cars i think they ever made. Not only was the predecessor for the eventual Coupe Quattro, but it was also like a smaller, german interpretation of an Aston Martin V8 Vantage (another one of my favourite 70s cars) OR something that Bertone would have designed for Alfa Romeo in the 70s…like a mini Italian supercar. Front engined, RWD. Not many of these made it to the US, but some did—however many more arrived years later as classic cars imported from Europe.
