There is also an ur-quattro Cabriolet, done by Tresser.  We had it in the Club 
tent at Coy's in 1996.  I believe the appropriate Americanism is:
                   "One ugly-looking mother".

It was a rotating hardtop design - it actually looks like a pick-up.  The deck 
hinges above the rear bumper, lifting up for the roof to rotate underneath.
