Maybe it's a sign of the times, but this week has been an unprecedented week of NON Ferrari into and/or visiting the shop.

.....Lambo Countach 5000S, Lotus Esprit, Porsche GT3 x2,

But one foreigner to come in for a long term visit is a 1992 Works Audi DTM winner. What a work of art and over engineered monster!

It's basically all together, just needs engine/box work and wiring/engine management etc....

I'll get some pics up soon, but for now, it's a pleasant distraction.

Anyone into Euro touring cars out there?

This one is ex Hans Stuck and Frank Biela, last car built. Audi claimed ~450 BHP at 7500rpm for this V8 brute... but they neglected to mention it revs to ~9000rpm where it makes well over 500 BHP!

...Biela gave Audi another crown in 1991, but was unable to defend the title in 1992. After that season, the DTM organizers deemed the V8's crankshaft illegal, and Audi retired from the championship...

How was the crankshaft illegal?

The road car is a normal 90 deg stagger crank, but the race car is flat plane, like Ferrari V8... tut tut  :tilt:

Definitely.  Loved those things.  But I did follow it more in the A4 era.

But this would still be good to see.  Ship it up my way. :thumbsup:

One really cool gizmo that made me chuckle, is the anti fog for the windscreen....

it's got a wiper INSIDE  :thumbsup:

It hangs off where the sun visor goes, and the driver just wipes it and tucks it away after  :cool:

Pax seat going in?  Would be worth a trip down if I was allowed to shoot it and do a small write up on it.
