I actually just got given a scanned PDF copy of the Mark Petch autonews article about these cars.

It seems the most expensive option was priced at $120,000 back in 1996.  :o

Here's another 286hp one for sale.

If this thing has a 40mm suspension drop then the original car must have been based on a cartoon. It's not exactly low

Trying to get an electronic copy, can you PM your email address and i'll send it to you to post up.

Curious to see that the A4 on TM doesn't have mtm badges?

Just reflecting on the above article, Audi quattros had a lot of mana back then - they were considered something special.

If Jay doesn't have the exact month it would be worth hunting for issues from 1996-1997.

The fwd option must be for the early 1.8T that came in fwd, i remember seeing 95/96 models that were non-quattro.

Not sure about when the article originally came out, the fax date is 12/12/97 so might be late 96 or early 97. Some of the early MTM cars were MY96 iirc.

I don't think NZ got any new FWD 1.8T B5 A4.
