The legendary Quattro all-wheel-drive system celebrates its 40th birthday this year, and what better way to mark the occasion than with a cool old-school motor to showcase the tech?
The car that’s currently making you gibber ‘ho-lee sheeet’ and dribble all over the page isn’t an official Audi creation, but rather the brainchild of Prior Design.
They wanted to build something that had never been built before, and decided to reimagine the retro B3 Coupé; the result is dripping in Group A rally aggression, and neatly addresses the fact that there was never an RS variant of this model. Here it is, restomodded for 2020.
The fat box arches recall the styling of the ur-Quattro, packed full of matte-black Rotiforms and surrounded by all manner of carbon aero addenda.
The nose is extravagantly vented like a Sport Quattro, and the oval exhausts tie it in to the RS Audis of today.
Prior Design is only producing 40 of these kits, at €5,798 apiece. Shipping starts in December and, at time of writing, they’re not quite sold out. So you know what to put in our Christmas stocking. Please.
