Nice find Nick! :) - bet that would be quick! At least in a straight line the weight of that engine might throw the dynamics out a bit.

I cant imagine the weight difference being to vast...

even so the slightest amount of balast put in the right place (if that much of a disturbance was caused in the first place

I like V8s better any way.. its just something about them feels so right

It's a swb conversion, donor car unknown although it probably started life (in Germany I think) as a common old garden type urq. This pic and a whole bunch of others came up on Audifans after the 25th anniversary get together at Ingolstadt.
It sure as heck looks like a good job, and would go like a a cut cat.

The V8 is shorter than the I5 so the weight distribution would be further to the rear, so less in front of the axle and therefore less understeer.

Some SWB conversions are made from CQs as they are cheaper than chopping up an Ur-q and the floorpan is the same, and the panels get replaced anyway.

Nice project...but, those wheels definitely do not go with the car at all.

Nah i totally agree they need to whoop out the springs leave it on bumps and chuck it on some big phat chromies..

and any of you just believed what i just said.. you are sadly mistaken.. but yes it does need some other wheels.. BBS of some sort

5-spoke Compomotive MOs - look just like '80s rally wheels used on Sport quattro. Not too big though.

Or the best of all - 9 x 15 Ronal R8 (16-spoke); the factory Spoirt wheel.

Not sure. The Allroad does have a similar type but the spokes are not as big, and they have more of those wee fake cap head bolts.
What it needs is some S1 wheels or replicas (white five spoke) That would finish it off rather well don't you think?

When you say you cant believe the weight, you mean that they are heavy?
