Re: Audi Aluminum Sports Car!!

Personally, I *loved* the Audi Quattro Spider showcar (except for the
colors they selected).  I think it got overshadowed by the Avus show-
car, plus I remember reading someplace that the unit cost calculations 
for the Quattro Spyder made it impractical for production.  Still, I 
bet that a nice "image car" would have helped keep Audi at more fruit-
ful levels during the lean years, even if they lost money on them.  
Look what the Dodge Viper has done to Chrysler....
