Audi in Dec Car Mags
So far a generally good month for Audi in the Dec car mags.
European Car has a nice story about another Audi concept vehicle tagged
the Audi TT. Looks like a close sibling to VWs new beetle. Supposedly
on the A3 chassis powered by the 1.8l turbo 4 cylinder. One is
apparently going to the Tokyo auto show in cabrio form powered by a VR 5
engine derived from the VW VR6. Porjected price if we can ever get one
is 35K. First several sentences refer to the Avus & Q Spyder which ". .
. won-and broke-hearts when they were displayed and semmingly abandoned."
There is also an ad in the issue for a company in College Station, TX,
Evolution Tuning. Ad says that "nothelle automobile Kompetenz"
celebrates its comback to American by introducing its latest European
release the "n4-V6(based on the A4).
Among the items supposedly available are: sport suspension, 16" & 17"
wheels, interiors, a motor tuning program avaialble Spring '96.
Any comments? Anyone know anything about this?
The Discount tire ad in the same issue shows a red A4 fitted with 17"
Cromadora wheels. Looks neat.
finally, Performance Car, that wonderul English $7.00 per copy in the US
mag, did a 10 coupe road test for the current issue. Cannot remember all
the cars they tested, but what appears to be an A4 couple fitted with a
2.8l 6 @ 150hp finished 7th. Most of the words they used to secribe the
car werevery positive. First was a Fiat turbo something or other (Sorry
I did not pay closer attention).
