What is a UR-Q? Kinda long...

Hmm.  I think the S1 qualifies as the _ultimate_ ur-quattro.  The Sport does 
_NOT_ have an aluminium block; in the first place, Sport production had not 
begun by the time the aluminium engine was fully homologated.

The parts fiche makes it quite clear that the aluminium engine was one of the 147kw
designs, and the Sport was a 221kw design - moreover, the aluminium block is listed
in the WR section, not the Sport's KW section.
