Re: "evo" magazine ur-quattro articles

	this is confusing... how can there be a '90 urq?
	i figure a 20v conversion is possible for a "20v
	urq" but i thought there was just one set of turbo
	quattro coupes (the urq, as i understand it) and
	these were in the mid 80's.  perhaps they kept on
	making and selling urq's in europe post-'86?
