I believe you're right, that they are officially a 200 quattro, not a 200 turbo
quattro. All 200's were turbos, only the 91's were 20v. However, because the old
5KS were "turbo quattros", I think it sticks.

Hey, I just bought one of the hottests Audi's ever produced (IMHO), I'm gonna
add the damn word TURBO to it if I want to!
