RE: Extinction of 200 20vt <was economics of...

actually, it seems to me that a number of braces were added to the 20v body,
notably around the transmission tunnel.  there is a post from me in the
archives (2 years ago probably) which details the exact changes...

personally, i love the 20v ur-quattro (as it seems that does everyone who
has driven them).  certainly it's the best "drivers car" audi i've ever
driven.  it is, however, heavier than the mb, but has a more tractble and
repairable :-) motor.  however, i have had very little seat time in the mb.
the 20v suspension changes (alloy wishbones) also helped...

'95 rs2
'90 ur-q
'89 mb 2.3-16

Did they do any body strengthening and extra support when they added the 3B
motor to the Ur-Q in europe???  I'm figureing they did and would probably
have to change some of the support structure, etc to shoehorn that motor in
that cramped engine bay.  Maybee Phil can answer this one....Phil????

Too bad we never saw Ur-Qs and coupe Quattros with the 20V motor over here.
Would have been nice to have a factory original 20V Ur-Q!  ;^)
