Details I know so far:

Arrived from Porsche directly and was registered as a German import, but RHD. The stamped chassis number on bulkhead is not like any other Audi stamping, I believe it is either a special build or a RHD development car from Porsche factory. The chassis number is only 10 digits long and looks hand stamped. It doesn't show up on ELSA or ETKA as a valid chassis number.

Some of the older boys at Giltraps remember it coming in and thought it was a prototype car also.

Either way it's a bit different and rare, but I just love driving it. So raw and agricultural, I do miss the smoothness and torque of the B5 RS4 but love the old school turbo lag too. It's a love/hate type of car, but even my wife likes it better than RS4 even. And she doesn't care about the history or pedigree bit.
Too much power is almost enough.

Oh, and congrats Barry.

I could never figure out why Chris repainted this car then purchased the sliver car and put this one on hold?
