 Good question Frank.

In the lead picture for the article the car appears to be red in color with
the 4 rings in black on the lower front door panel. In one of the sidebars,
Ron Grable describes the color as orange. Only the lead photo is color and
there is no reference in the article to what production number this car is.
I'm thinking it was probably a test mule for all the car mags to thrash in
prep for writing an article about it. From the writing in the article, it
sounds like this was one of, if not the first, Quattro imported to USA soil.
