OK, now that you mentioned it, I think I'd rather have the "ultra rare 1983 Audi 80 quattro 2-door" than the UrQ. That would be a 4000 quattro 2-door to those of us in the USA. A Type 81 (yes 81) 4000 2-door quattro. Only 120 made from what I heard. For a pic, check out http://www.quattro.ca/PIC00007.jpg
Wonder if the owner would be willing to part with it?
1987 CGT 2.3

As luck would have it my close friend Mike Hopton had purchased an ultra rare 1983 Audi 80 quattro 2-door in Germany and Ralf was helping him with the purchase. Since the car was making it's way across the pond, we decided to try and send the engine with it. I was surprised but the whole engine and all related parts fitted in the small trunk of the 80, but just barely. I flew over to Germany to have the car placed in a container and shipped from Poland, at a much better priceâ¦ this turned out to be an adventure I won't soon forgetâ¦ (more on this in future issues) needless to say few month or so later both the car and the engine had arrived safely in Canada."
