no typo, look at the rake of the front screen, replica i think?
Windscreen angle looks good to me. Coupe screen is noticeably more laid back.

Might that be because after cutting 12" from the coupe chassis Audi used the screen frame and A pillars of the Audi 80 to gain head clearance for tall German called Walter Rohl. The car was homolgated for Audi's rally program not commercial volume.

I believe the 80 front end was used as the works drivers had complained about the bad reflections they were getting from the earlier windscreen. With the more upright windscreen, reflections were greatly reduced.

Did those RS2's go overseas with their owners, or were they to overseas purchasers?

Two went with owners. The first one (blue) in the last 90’s to Oz. The second (silver) was to the UK, this was Colin Giltraps wife’s car.
Two others have gone to OZ in the last couple of years, both black.
