Well, I simplified. The auxiliary radiator in an ur-quattro is replaced in the
Sport by a massive intercooler. It has a huge surface area, and also seems
slightly deeper. The radiator is moved slightly downwards and is set at a
slight angle - but it seems to be the same as the ur-q's radiator.
Can this be the case? How can the Sport's 221KW engine be cooled by a single
radiator, when the WR/GV/WX/MB/RR engines all have an auxiliary?
