sweetline has long gone.

sweetline > brandlines > dksh nz


sweetline founders mark granger and philip crawshaw were known car nuts.

granger was infamous around town with his red bentley turbo.

iirc crawshaw had an e-type ?

both left palm nth a long time ago; crawshaw is in tga,

last i heard granger went bust ~2015.

I guess one thing is sure and looking at the UK prices are continuing to climb so its a good time to own a quattro regardless of WR, MB, RR or Sport, only wish I had brought a sport before they became desirable ... lol donít we all !

Given only 214 left hand drive Sport-quattro's were factory built of which 164 units were sold and delivered to customers I suspect they have always been desirable.

Windscreen angle looks good to me. Coupe screen is noticeably more laid back.

its a replica made out of audi 80 bits for the windscreen...wonder if that would help knock the price down?..easy get it past the misses..look dear its an old 80s coupe,worth 6 grand...anyway just noticed a buy now on the trade me car at 55

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.
