Group B pace not price

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

His­torics is of­fer­ing auc­tion-goers the chance to get Group B pace and looks for a tenth of the price.

Just over 25 years since the last orig­i­nal Audi Qu­at­tro left the fac­tory in May 1991, His­torics is of­fer­ing an evo­ca­tion at its 11 June sale at Brook­lands, Sur­rey. This Hannu Mikkola Group 4-spec­i­fi­ca­tion car of­fers a trib­ute to the 1985 Audi Qu­at­tro Competition Coupe and is es­ti­mated at £24-28,000.

The car fea­tures a fully seam-welded shell and FIA roll-cage, rear fire­wall, sport Qu­at­tro bon­net and high-level boot spoiler. It also has Brembo brakes, Brembo slave and master cylin­ders, a limited slip dif­fer­en­tial and a 3in stain­less steel ex­haust. Power is am­ple thanks to a larger turbo, Lu­me­ni­tion en­gine man­age­ment, green in­jec­tors, up­rated fuel pumps and forged pis­tons. The sus­pen­sion has coil-overs with Sport Qu­at­tro arms and alu­minium strut braces, fit­ted to Speed­line al­loy wheels.

‘It not only looks the part but has the po­ten­tial to de­liver on its prom­ise,’ says the auc­tion house.
