In the late 1990s, manufacturer-backed teams would come to dominate touring-car series around the world. One of the most pre-eminent was Audi, which spared no expense in its pursuit of the top of the podium. Using its base A4 Quattro as a platform, Audi developed the car significantly and turned it into a race winner.
In addition, Audi sought the best drivers from around the world in order to do their creation justice.
Technically, the Audi A4 Quattro Super Touring boasts some incredible hardware. The 2-liter, 4-cylinder engine boasts a massive 305 horsepower and is mated to a 6-speed sequential gearbox. The ECU is a high-specification Bosch Motronic 2.8 unit, and the roll bars can be adjusted internally, allowing drivers to change the setup of the car on the move.
