Sounds like an A2.  There never was any interior, but there should be
a co-driver's seat.  Is the electronics package installed?

No idea.  I would _guess_ at an aluminium block WR.

It's worth more than a _Sport_ - perhaps twice as much.  I know of four
in existence, plus "yours".

Pretty well, though there's a grill lying on Adam Marsden's 'general

Historic Motorsport and/or AM Cars and/or Dialynx.  I think Aelred has

You're into really exotic territory.  The A2 is about ten times rarer
than the Sport and perhaps even rarer than the S1.  I've seen three -

combined UK Audi quattro Owners Club and International Sport quattro
Owners Club meeting at Woburn a year or two before that, and one
on the road, leaving the M25 for the M40.  I was unfortunately going
the other way.

At this level, it's detrimental to the car's value that it was never
