Thank you for the claification, I thought that DTM and "GTTC" were 
actually one in the same.  Again, my interest is in the homologation 
cars that Audi was required to build in order to race in DTM.  These 
cars could yeild some US street legal enhancements for the V8 
Quattros that would benefit the enthusiest that craves a bit more 
performance than the stock V8 can deliver.  Perhaps these cars could 
be had, grey market imported, in the US?!
