This is not just any Audi Quattro you would meet in an old automobile club; it was built to fully become a Pikes Peak race car. Under its hood lies a very powerful engine. The car is also shaped in such a way as to produce an epic downforce.
Nobody expected, though, that it could be a drag monster too. For a vehicle built for corners, this Quattro performs quite impressive as a drag racer thanks to the big power that it has at its disposal.
The mastermind behind this car is EPS Motorsport, who gives it a 2.5-liter inline five-cylinder engine sourced from a recent Audi TT RS. It has been upgraded massively with large fuel injectors, forged internals, nitrous injection, a Motec ECU, a Precision 6466 turbocharger, and many more. No wonder it’s capable of generating a staggering 891 hp and 670 lb-ft of torque.
That output is sent to all four wheels through a six-speed sequential transmission. Since the beginning, this Quattro was never made to do fast quarter-mile passes, but that didn’t make the owner reluctant to put it on Santa Pod Raceway in England to complete some runs.
As you can see, the car has wings that induce a lot of drag; but it seems that it’s too wild to be slowed only by those wings. In fact, it managed to clock a best quarter-mile time of 10.51 seconds travelling at 136 mph, which is quite remarkable given that it’s configured for a very different type of racing.
