1984 Audi Sport Quattro - Approved

1984 Audi Sport Quattro
The 1984 Audi Sport Quattro was approved for Show or Display importation, however now the car is over 25 years old and legal to import. Over 21 years old and EPA exempt in its original configuration.

Interesting looking car. Looks like someone took about 2 feet(actually 12.6 inches) of car out of the middle. Purposeful would be the word that would be best to describe the car.  It was a homologation car for Group B rallying. 2.1 liter, turbo, 300 horsepower in the street car, more than 450 in the race car, all wheel drive, carbon-kevlar body components.  224 cars were made, so under the 500 mark for Show or Display.  This is the kind of car that makes sense for Show or Display, however now its old enough to be imported under Box 1 of the HS7.
Audi Sport Quattro

The Audi Sport Quattro S1 was a Quattro programme car developed for homologation for Group B rallying in 1984, and sold as a production car in limited numbers.[1] It featured an all aluminium alloy 2,133 cc (130.2 cu in) (2.1 L) 20v DOHC engine slightly smaller than that of the Audi Quattro (in order to qualify for the 3-litre engine class after the scale factor applied to turbo engines). In road-going form, the engine was capable of producing 225 kW(306 PS; 302 bhp),[1] with the competition cars initially producing around 331 kW (450 PS; 444 bhp).[1]
The vehicle also featured a body shell composed of carbon-kevlar[1] and boasting wider arches, wider wheels (nine inches as compared to the Ur-Quattro's optional 8-inch-wide (200 mm) wheel rim), the steeper windscreen rake of the Audi 80 (requested by the Audi Sport rally team drivers to reduce internal reflections from the dashboard for improved visibility) and, most noticeably, a 320 mm (12.6 in) shorter wheelbase.
In addition to Group B competition in rallying, the Sport Quattro won the 1985 Pikes Peak International Hill Climb with Michèle Mouton in the driving seat, setting a record time in the process.[11] 224 cars of this "short version" Sport Quattro were built, and were offered for sale at a heady price of 203,850 German Marks.[1]
