In another effort to share a great build thread, we bring you this car; something you might not expect from Modified. This Audi Quattro started life as a long wheel base model, the owner stripped everything completely down, actually cut and shortened the body, and then built everything from the ground up to make a purpose built one-off racing car.
At the very beginning of the build, we are greeted by a modified GT3582 turbocharger, always a good sign of things to come. The owner of this car did nearly everything himself, in his home garage.
The engine has been torn down and rebuilt from the ground up with high quality components, including JE Pistons, ARP connecting rods, RS2 head gasket, and extensive headwork and custom sizing of certain parts for optimized performance and reliability. It's clear that this guy knows what he's doing, and wants this car to really kick some serious booty.
The suspension and running gear is all pieced together from different cars, the details of which can all be found in the full build thread.
We like this car because it's a great example of what can be done with plenty of patience, knowhow, and perhaps most importantly, the will to make something truly unique and cool out of an admittedly dull starting point. Too bad this guy's not in the US, we would love to see this thing run!
