Is this 610hp Audi 80 Quattro the ultimate sleeper?
This car has the same power-to-weight ratio as a Pagani Zonda
This very inconspicuous-looking Audi 80 Quattro has a trick up its sleeve that many people wouldn't dream of thinking up.
Its owner has taken the car's standard 2.2-litre naturally aspirated inline-five that produced 136hp and has now pumped in a lot more. As it stands, this Audi 80 now has the same power-to-weight ratio as a Pagani Zonda.
When it left Paul’s Classic Car Restorations garage in the UK, it had a massive 610hp under the bonnet – a huge increase over every other 80 Quattro.
In order to do this, the original engine was replaced by a five-cylinder S2 engine and the transmission was sourced from a US-spec Audi 200, but other than that, most other components remain stock.
