AUDI 90 : IN THE NAME OF TRASER
In the 80s the famous Walter Treser made some very special variants of the Audi 90
In 1984 the leadership of the Audi took the decision to create a new variant of the 80 model that was more luxurious and performance and this gave birth to the new 90 produced in two series until 1991.
Immediately after the presentation of the vehicle, the designer Walter Traser, former director of Audi Sport and collaborator for the development of the legendary quattro, decided to rework it in some particular variants.
TRASER SUPERPFEIL LIMOUSINE
The first version of the 90 was the Superpfeil Limousine, built in a single model and recognized for a new aerodynamic body kit in fiberglass mounted to improve the CX of the car.
The engine was a 160 hp with 220 Nm of torque 2.3-liter pentacylinder managed by a five-speed manual gearbox and combined to the quattro traction.
The most famous model of Treser based on the 90 was however the Hunter made in 10 copies always in 1984 on behalf of the Sultan of Oman who wanted a suitable vehicle to practice falconry.
The idea was of an Indian collaborator who proposed to the monarch to adequately test the potential of quattro traction for his favorite hobby.
The cars were equipped with reinforced suspension, protective steel plates in the underbody, Michelin TRX anchored tires and a new body kit.
Equipped with the same engine as the Superpfeil Limousine, the car was able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h in 10.7 seconds with a top speed of 177 km / h.
Always serial vehicles converted for off-road like Hunter have stimulated my admiration and I don't hide that I would like very much to try a specimen, but which of the two do you prefer?
Thank you to Valentina Zanola and Alessandro Renesis for the cooperation
