Audi DTM V8's
When Audi raced in the DTM series in 1990 and 1991, with the V8,
they had to, by the series rules, produce a limited number of cars
with the racing style body work flairs and engine modifications for
street use. These cars were somewhere in between the street derived
cars and the full race DTM machines. When the M3 Evolutions were
released in Europe during those years, the US dealerships could get
some of the upgraded parts for US M3's. I believe the engine (US
legal) was about $13,000 US. Did Audi ever release the upgraded
parts, such as engine components. This information might lead to
significant HP increases for V8's if they are available.
Also of interest would be a history of those cars and why Audi chose
to drop the DTM series.
